Hey, guys, TheAtomTwister here. I've spoken a lot about engineering stuff relating to blowers and messing with the fans in the blower and stuff. I'm going to tell you right here, right now, DO NOT TRY THAT AT HOME! You can very easily ruin your blower, and you can really hurt your fingers doing this. And of course as far as I'm concerned, your warranty is void if you mod your blower. I know that I've tweaked my blower, that doesn't mean that you should too. It's not one of those things that you can just do and then get a good result, it takes quite a bit of skill, and it is not exactly easy to do. Enough said.

By the way, EGO, I think I figured out why so many of your blowers quit and just would not turn on. Thanks to Jacob for giving me a lead, and the reports talking of 25 non-functional blowers at a Home Depot, I believe that heat is the problem. I left my first EGO blower out in the sun for a couple of hours, and it was about 95 degrees fahrenheit, and after that, when I put the battery on, nothing. There was no activity, the circuit was broken somewhere. I believe that thermal expansion of the water seal on the controller may have torn up some of the electronics or severed a connection in the circuit. I'd suggest looking into that, as a bunch of blowers stored in a hot room and as a result becoming non-functional would explain something like what happened at that Home Depot that was brought up in one of the blower stopped working threads.
