Request for various blower nozzle extensions and attachments such as rigid extensions, semi-rigid extensions, 90 degree and/or 180 degree bend attachment, precision nozzle, brush tipped nozzle.

Great idea. I could use those for odd projects around the house. And the 180 degree would be great for my gutters so I don't have to climb up there on a ladder and have the Ego jet engine blow me off.

If my house was only 2 feet tall like in the Ego blower video, then I guess I wouldn't need a ladder either... but unfortunately I have one of those grown-up houses.

Thanks for the ideas Steve. We're looking into accessories like these for all of our blowers for the future. We'll keep you posted if/as they become available.

I've been thinking about buying the backpack blower, and I would like to see a gutter cleaning kit for it too!

We do not have anything (as far as attachments) planned for release this year.

Is there a competitor gutter cleaning kit that can attach to an Ego blower?

You would think they would at least come out with a nossal attachment like they have for the other blowers for the backpack blower.  The new blower they just released is capable of more mph than the backpack blower.

I bought 2 of these on Amazon to connect to rach other (because my gutters are high up). They work very well, but then I got lazy and had Home Depot install gutter guards.

Hi Sergey. Does it mean you can reach up to 22 feet high? Which Ego blower are you using? Thanks.

#1 If you read closely it is 8' of tube that they state gives you 11' of reach

#2 Have you ever tried using a tool that is 20' long.  It becomes rather difficult as anyone that has used a tree pruner can tell you.

So can you hook 2 together for ~ 19' reach - yes
will it be a manageable and effective tool - ?
I guess having it leaning on the gutter almost exclusively would help with the stability, but I imagine it would still be a challenge

I was just thinking about asking about these for our EGO blowers. Good to see others are asking the same. Looks like there are SOB attachments, but I would like to see an EGO set.

I have the 575 CFM Blower. When you connect two extensions, it reaches the gutter and works well. It is hard to operate as it becomes heavy. What I do is get an outside chair to rest the blower on and rest the top of the extension (it is bent in a hook) on the gutter to blow the leaves away. This cuts the weight a lot.

Thanks for the first hand account Sergey !
Much better than our guessing and postulating.
