My new EGO Battery Powered (530 CMF) Blower stopped after 25 minutes. I was on my roof blowing leaves from the gutters. All was working well. The battery had been fully charged. Perhaps I was using the "turbo" speed too much.

I find myself using turbo most of the time.  MORE POWER!

When I had the 480 blower, I just taped the turbo on, with the 530 I can get by with high power most of the time with bursts of turbo when needed. 

That being said, I'm not a fan of the turbo button.  EGO should find a safe median between turbo and high and just make it the high speed.

To the original poster, please call EGO Support.  I am curious if you heard anything from the blower that would make you think something mechanical going wrong?  Pitch, anything?

Depending on how you're using it, the blower can last as long as 75 minutes and as little as 10 minutes. From the manual:


I would think 25 minutes is a decent amount of time if it was working steady blowing out gutters.

Blue, nice catch.  I didn't read his comment correctly.  25 minutes is long.  I get maybe 15 minutes on high with a 4AH battery.  I thought he went up with a fully charged battery and it didn't work.

So, probably nothing wrong.

Thanks for the information. Customer service confirms what Blue says. Good to know that nothing is wrong. I shall conserve my power.
