The shoulder straps on the EGO 145 MPH 600CFM 56-Volt Lithium-ion Cordless Backpack Blower with 7.5Ah battery are too large and too stiff to be adjustable to a slender woman’s 135 pound frame.

The result is unwanted movement causing pain and back problems.  Has anyone solved this problem with modifications, outside purchases, etc? EGO has nothing to offer.  We have only 22 days to make this blower work for us or to return it for a refund!

Well, if you were hunters, you might have one of these units in your garage...:)

You could then hang the EGO unit on the External frame unit that has great shoulder and hip straps...:)
