I don't see how. The Ego leaf blowers don't have a vacuum function.

You could cut out or remove the intake screen, but it would void the warranty and you'd risk damaging the fan if you used it to shred debris.  The unit just wasn't designed for that.  I don't even think it would work all that well.

The impeller would last 1 leaf. Then become a million pieces.

No, I've had leaves get sucked into the intake. The fan is actually pretty tough, but the blades are closely spaced. They would eventually wear down and the balance would be thrown off. It would more likely cause the motor to fail either by the aluminum part that screws into the shaft, by the shaft itself, or by the magnets shattering.
