Bristle brush attachment

Finally received the brush and tried it out yesterday. We received a good skiff of snow in Calgary with strong winds which made the snow cover very uneven. The brush powered through without any problems and what impressed me was the sweeping action was very clean - leaving no lines between the brush heads which is apparent with the power brushes from competitors. Found that is was quite easy to use despite its size when attached to the power head. When in use, its very manageable , however when you are moving it around - it can be cumbersome. In the process of making a wheel kit as the aid of wheels is essential. Currently half way through the build as I needed the brush attachment to figure out the mounting points. In closing - great product as this is the step that takes the shovel away.

Your report sounds a lot like mine. I agree that wheels will help the cumbersome aspect of it. Looking forward to your wheel mod. I know you are using a reel mower with blades removed.

Thanks Mike for your comments, I used it again tonight after work and yes - it impresses. The 5 amp battery powered both the brush and the 650  blower and I had a full bar left on the fuel cell. I will keep you informed on the my wheel kit as it's going to work out very well.

Hi Jeff - Thanks for your comments, I will get back to work on the wheel kit this weekend and modify the front of the reel mower to accept the attachment shaft where it goes through the guard. Will keep you guys posted as I go. Would like to plan this wheel kit to accept multiple attachments for Ego.

Szwoopp beat me to it. William, once is enough, please. This is an EGO forum. While it's nice to know about accessories that make our lives easier when using EGO tools, your "getting the word out" is bordering on spam/flooding on this forum which is generally frowned upon in most forums.

Hi William - I saw that wheel kit offered by Perry Kempf a while ago and glad that you have ordered it. It will save a lot on your back from hauling it around as you are well aware that its not light. For me its not so much the money spent but a challenge to build the wheel kit - Hope you enjoy your new purchase.

Warbird 2007, you're handier than me, but I don't mind spending on things that makes my work easier. Looking forward to your completed wheel kit; keep us posted.
