Next generation EGO Blower idea

EGO has the summer months covered with LED equipped mowers and winter covered with LED equipped snow blowers. Lets not forget about fall EGO. With less daylight this time of year, it has been difficult to complete my fall cleanup. This non-original equipment LED actually works great and allows me continuous leaf blowing after dusk.

Nice add on Mike.  And I like your shelves full of Ego tools in the background as well.

Mike, awesome idea!!!

I was thinking the same about the weed trimmer this fall... the headlights on the mower work great, but that doesn’t help with the trimming. Gotta wear a headlight for that.

For the record, I think each and every Ego tool should have some sort of lighting built in. The Power Head would need to add it to the handle so it works with all the attachments. :-)

Nice!  Where did you get that?  Do you have a SKU or model #?

Thanks.  Looks like Target has it on sale, too.  Did you use double-sided tape to attach it?

I used a Velcro strap but doubled-sided tape will also work.

Velcro with industrial strength adhesive would allow removal when not needed.  Same stuff I used to attach the digital volt meter:

Hmmm.. I've never mowed or blowed(sic) in the dark yet.   Despite my EGO mower having headlights. I don't want EGO adding features to increase the cost when they aren't needed by most users.  Some of the many"I want EGO to make [insert crazy idea here]" are non-starters.   Every EGO owner shouldn't be expecting EGO to make everything they ask for.  Maybe a moratorium on the Wish List would be nice.  EGO SHOULD have employees that can decide what would be a good product..like what most companies can manage on their own.  They can (and should, IMO) do focus groups for new products, but they should have the INGENUITY on their own, to think up new products or enhanced products.

I don't think hearing suggestions from customers on forums like these is a bad idea. It costs Ego nothing. Most ideas won't be possible, but manufacturers can spot clear trends if there's something a lot of people ask for.

Wait a minute !! 
You mean this is not Ego's R&D department on the cheap ?!?

It is interesting and enlightening to see some folks ideas and down right entertaining to see others.

And how awesome is it that it's practically Ego green too?
