Just placed my order online, and I can’t wait to try it out! I have been using the EGO string trimmer to clean up my edges since my gas multi tool quit on me. They are starting to get a little messy so the EGO edger was a must buy.

Christmas in mid-January!



...excited and waiting for spring.

(Was wondering I registered this last night and it doesn’t show up on my account. Does it take time until it appears?)

Nice!

If it doesn’t show up in your account after a few days give Ego Customer Service a call to make sure everything is set up properly.

Looks like I'm getting another blower.

That new 580 cfm blower looks sweet, and especially for that PRICE!!! Barely more than the battery alone!!!

Honestly, 5 more cfm than the 575 doesn’t do much for me. What DOES is the maximum run time of 200 minutes compared to only 120 min on the 575. This means the lowest speed on the 580 should be much lower, meaning easier to control around the mulch in our gardens.

And last but not least, the return of the Boost button! With a 5Ah battery it’s not as big a deal, but I did miss the Turbo button on the 575. So the 580 fixes the two small dislikes I had with the 575. Bam! :-)

Yes you do.  The new out of the box picture is nice, but we need action shots and a full review !  :)

My hedge trimmer attachment arrived recently, too, and it's a beast! But the foot of snow surrounding my shrubs has dampened my enthusiasm for trying it out.

We're seeing a warming trend where I live, though, so it might get used next weekend. Fingers crossed.

My exact thoughts - "beast." Ha - I wrote a short post yesterday and must have forgotten to hit reply.

I tried it out yesterday on one of my decorative trees where I could stand on the dry pavement. You need to plan ahead where you are going to assemble this especially with the extension not only because of the length but also the weight. It worked great for the small trimming I did - I could easily reach 10'. This tool with extension is so long and has sizeable mass that warrants you to plan ahead and know your surroundings.

Mike

(P.S. to EGO - this like my power head and edger came in the OEM box with only tabs holding the box closed. Would really like to suggest EGO put a couple pieces of tape over the tabs.)

Sounds like I might have to finally get around to ordering an Ego shoulder strap!

This video just showed up in my Facebook feed. It should pique some interest around here.

The 580 is stronger than the 600 imo. I had the 600 and a 530 cfm to begin with. The 530 had more power. I even did the volleyball test & the 530 pushed the ball farther than my 600. I have pictures that prove it. Also the trigger layout on the 600 is bad for long periods of use. Holding the safety,trigger & boost for 30mins hurts like hell.

@Arun: really?  Wow - that's surprising, as the volley ball test really does rely on basic physics (Bernoulli's Principle, as in, the more air that is pushed around the ball, the higher it goes due to lower pressure).   If the 580 and 530 were pushing the ball higher than the 600, that tells me that either 1. the 600 was defective, 2. you didn't have the 600 on full power, or 3. EGO's estimate of CFM/air speed is wrong for the 600 (which seems unlikely).

The BP blower uses a slightly larger diameter tube, so velocity for a given flow rate will be lower. This would impact the volleyball test.

That would explain his Bernoulli's Principle test results.  I wonder if he added the nozzle at the end of the BP blower if that would improve things?

If Ego made a nozzle for the BP blower he could try it! ;-)

Also see a powerhead, edger, battery and charger kit up, as well as the bare tool carbon fiber shaft trimmer.

Now that is something I can definitely use with my 7.5 Ah battery.  I have a 600 CFM backpack blower and it is very comfortable to wear.  This new tool looks to be of the same design, so that is a good thing.  Thanks MattW for posting the link ... :-)

That's pretty awesome. I wonder how much the adapter part weighs.

I imagine next to nothing.  It is just a plastic shell with the connections for power.
