This video really blows.  (I apologize, couldn't help myself)

Thanks for the head to head comparison

Great test, great video, and one hell of shot with a bow.   This guy does it all.

I can't tell you how good it felt to shoot one of those beach balls....

After all those tests and how hard the beach balls worked for you, that is no way to treat it ... :-)

Nice David......I have to say the guilt is eating me up - I'm having bad thoughts about my soccer ball.

I was really heading down the 575 bare route (at $149) since I have two 5.0 batteries.  When the 530 went on sale for $149, I had to compare the value of the two different $149 options.  In the end, I traded the additional 45 CFM, shoulder strap and diffuser for a 2.5 battery.  This became a fairly easy decision (bought the 530) since my tasks are quite basic (pool deck being the main area I need to address).  Here is the bonus:  When I brought it home and showed my wife, her reaction was "wow, that is so light I might actually use it myself..."!!!!

I recently purchased the 575 with two 5.0 ah batteries & it takes care of all the heavy wet leaves in my yard .. I'm pleased to see the disappearance of that childish turbo button .. enjoyed the video!

Bottom line - you can't go wrong with either model :)

Nice test, Andrew!

It would be interesting to see how the run times compared if you were to dial back the power on the 575 to where it matches the output of the 530.

You mentioned getting even more power from the blowers with the 7.5Ah battery. Did you test this?

Thanks Blue.  Please no more beach balls - No, I have not officially  bench tested BUT I have used the 7.5AH in the blower and felt that it was more powerful.  I will put that on the list.  I guess I should stop shooting the beach balls :)

Hard to complete testing when the equipment gets used for target practice!
