God I hope so. It's an awesome blower that needs a new trigger!

The 570 got it right.  It's a fantastic blower, but it wants to pull my shorts off of me when I use it as the intake is right against the leg.

Now I know why I see shades being drawn when they hear me start my blower.

I own both the backpack blower and the new 575, and I am in FULL agreement with you guys ...

We're changing this from a "Question" to an "Idea," so that we can better track it in the future. This is a fantastic idea and we'll definitely be passing it along to our development team.

Hopefully if they do this the parts will be available to modify the backpack one. I just ordered the backpack blower and only thing I didn't like the looks of was the trigger assembly.

I just exchanged the 530 CFM blower for the 575 CFM blower for just that reason. I could use a backpack blower but I really like the trigger assembly / cruise control feature on the 575. Also,the lockout button on the new power head is an upgrade over the one on the 15" trimmer IMO.
