Greenworks just came out with a new blower, a 580 CFM gen 2 handheld unit.  I do not like its design, as it is a match to the 60V unit, but is more powerful, and I never liked the ergonomics of the 60V Greenworks.  I love the ergonomics of the gen 1 80V Greenworks and I wish EGO would make a similar handheld unit with the handle being straight and horizontal and the battery being located in a place that would allow it to act as a counterweight to the thrust.  

This did get me thinking: when is someone going to pass the 700 CFM mark with a battery powered unit.  Do you have plans for a more powerful backpack blower (maybe with cruise control? ;) and if so can we hear about them?

Not personally aware of something like this in the pipeline, but double-checking... Will post if find out otherwise. :-)
