LOVE the combination of convenience and power in these products. I'd sure love to see a snow blower added to the line. Any plans to add a snow blower to your awesome lineup?

I hope so, because it would be nice to have clearing the walkway. It should be so awesome that snow just moves on its own because it fears the EGO Snow Beast

As loyal and active members of the EGO community, we wanted you to hear this from us first.  As you can imagine, snow blowers require a tremendous amount of power to move and throw heavy, thick snow.  
 
Several years back we set our sights on snowblowers, while benchmarking the best in class gas powered snowblowers.  We have been working to match their power and performance ever since.  We also took a look at the pain points in this category and how to solve them for our customers.  It's our typical clean sheet of paper engineering.  Simply put, we are not going to follow the cordless competition, as during testing last winter, they simply didn't stack up in terms of power, performance or convenience.  
 
We are pleased to announce that there WILL BE an EGO Power+ Snow Blower next season (2016).  We appreciate your patience waiting just a bit longer so that when it comes to market, it lives up to our promise to you... POWER BEYOND BELIEF.

Thanks for the announcement! I assume that means the 2016-2017 winter?

Now that Ego is going to be playing in the cold weather space, I fully expect to be able to replace my Milkwaukee M12 battery-powered jacket with one from Ego...



Preferably one that includes this design, but actually lights up...



And yes, a heated jacket is absolutely a necessity here in Georgia. Sometimes it gets down into the 30s or even the 20s here!
