Full power? That could be right. If you don't run it on full power, mine lasts between 15-20 minutes. Good luck to you.

I agree. I have the same 580 blower purchased as a kit with 5 aH battery (twice the capacity). I typically get 45 minutes to an hour if I don't use the turbo button. A runtime of 20 minutes or so with 5aH battery would match what you are experiencing.

From the owner's manual. Note the run times are with a 5ah battery so your 2.5ah battery would be about half the run time, or less.

Yep, any longer tha 9 min on boost and you’re getting run time as expected with the 2.5Ah battery.

I’ve never needed to run my leaf blower at full power except to blow gravel back into the landscaping.

Same, I have the 575 blower and rarely even use it over half power.
