I agree! Or... a vacuum attachment for the blower. I’ve not purchased the EGO blower as yet because I need to stick with my Black & Decker “plug-in” blower / vacuum combo. The Live Oak trees in my yard lose their leaves every October. Don’t like raking, so use the vacuum feature of my Black & Decker combo.

I also requested this a year ago and patiently waiting for the "announcement" from EGO ... hopefully sooner than later.  That said; I don't believe an attachment will be forthcoming.  The reason is that most blades in these blower/vacuum tools are made from strong metal materials - in order for them to shred/mulch leaves effectively.

When you look at all EGO leaf blowers, the turbine fans are made from some sort of plastic material.  The EGO snow blower, for example, has a rubber paddle.  Anything outside of that could be too heavy which "negatively" impact battery life.  Therefore, I am curious to see what kind of blade material EGO plan to use in their "NEW" blower/vacuum - assuming they will make one, if not two or three models for us to choose from ... :-)

Just FYI. My Black and Decker blower / vacuum combo tool has plastic fan blades not metal.

Interesting, I also have an old Black & Decker blower/vacuum but my blades are of some kind of metal material.

I agree, I have a mower, 2 blowers, weed eater, hedge trimmer, and a saw. I need a vac unit to remove items from my lawn. Any chance you are working on one before I buy one from a competor?

y'all know your lawns are outside right ??  Vacuums are for cleaning inside the house.  That is the beauty of the great outdoors, they don't have to be as clean as the indoors.  :)
