Received it this evening and my initial thoughts:

Even with the largest battery it feels light.

The design is more compact over all than the backpack blower frame.

It has less padding in the shoulder straps and doesn't have a waist belt. It does have a chest strap.

Very nice cord and plug. Plenty of length but not to long.

Balance of tool will change due to the shell battery is very light. I actually think I may split the battery and add a little weight....or maybe to the power head side of the tool in use. Keep in mind that i use a string trimmer anywhere from 10 to 20 plus hours a week so modifying a tool makes sense.......but for you it may not.

I bought this mainly to use with the string trimmer line. I wanted the longest run time possible on some of the biggest properties I maintain. Currently the 7.5 is the largest offered and I doubt I will use anything else on the tool.

I will give it a good workout in the coming days.

Thanks for the update, Jeremy! Adding weight to the dummy battery is an interesting idea.
