I bought an ego backpack blower last week and the battery is only lasting 20 mins at a time! It’s very frustrating. Is this a common problem or is this normal?

According to the manual the expected runtime is 22 minutes on high speed, two hours at low speed.

I would say moderate your speed setting and only use the highest speed or turbo when you need it.

I don't have the backpack blower, but I do have the 575 cfm. I get reasonable runtimes when I don't have it cranked up all the way unless I need to.
