LB6504 vs LB5804

About to buy either the LB6504 or the LB5804. Reading the specs, it appears the 6504 is an upgraded version of the 5804, so I can't figure out why it's less expensive (not by much, but still) at HD. Am I missing something? Thanks for your help.

Could be an introductory price, or could just be Home Depot's crazy pricing they do sometimes.

LB6504 's WEAKNESSES:
  • Quite heavy (9.7 lbs)
  • Low autonomy (30 mins) - 
  • Autonomy-wise, with up to 30 minutes of autonomy on a full charge, the LB6504 is on the low end when compared with other cordless handheld units (the one with the best autonomy being the EGO POWER+ 580 CFM LB5804 with up to 180 minutes of runtime).

Paul, what does autonomy mean in this case? As far as runtime, both blowers are nearly identical.

From the 650 manual - 
Approximate run time (With EGO BA2800T/BA2800T-FC 56V Battery 5.0 Ah)
200 min (Low speed)
30 min (High Speed)
15 min (Boost mode)

From the 580 manual - 
Approximate run time (With EGO BA2800 56V Battery 5.0 Ah)
200 min (Low speed)
30 min (High Speed)
18 min (Boost mode)

Difference in boost mode run time makes sense since the 650 would be more powerful in that instance.

Also, weight appears to be the same and nowhere near what you posted.

650 - Weight (without battery pack) 4.77 lb. (2.17 kg)

580 - Weight (without battery pack) 4.77 lb. (2.17 kg)

Any difference after that would be from battery used.

I have the 580, curious if the 650 at 12% more power is a big difference when using.
