Does Ego make a tapered extension for the leaf blower? If not do you know of any made by another manufacturer that would fit the Ego blower? Thank you for any help.

Mph is easy to do. Its the CFM that requires the amps. Thats why you see all of these turbine type blowers showing up, because volume is much more important than MPH. They, however, cannot experience flow restriction. By design a turbine style blower requires 0 restriction to operate at the outlet. Any restriction, and there is 0 flow. Put your hand over the tip. You will see.

Actually, the speed is harder to get, the kinetic energy of objects is linearly related to mass but linearly related to the square of the velocity. Much more power is required for high speed than for high volume. They sacrificed the speed to get the volume. 530CFM at 160 mph would require over twice the power that 530CFM at 110mph would.

We're working on Canadian availability. It should be available there soon as well.
