I searched but didn't see this suggested, but how about a power snow brush, basically a mini snow blower, to clear decks and small sidewalks/walkways/hard to reach areas.

I agree.  Of course EGO might already be working on that product right now.  If so I'm in for not having to use a shovel anymore:)

I've been thinking about it as well.  A standalone tool would be fine, but it would be cooler if it could be an attachment for the multi-head system.

It seems some have been using their leaf blowers to move snow. I'm wanting to try that with mine, but we've been having a very mild winter this year so no snow yet.

I'd like this too! Stihl makes this attachment for their KombiSystem and it works wonders. Not only good for light snow removal, but also for stuck debris like pine needles that find their way in asphalt.

Burnside, are you talking about the Bristle Brush and/or PowerSweep for Stihl's KombiSystem? https://www.stihlusa.com/information/how-to-guides/cleaning-driveways/. Never really thought of using a power brush like this, and I wonder if that's what Erik, the OP, was thinking of with his original post. I thought he was talking about what a lot of people call a power snow shovel, like this: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Greenworks-Digi-Pro-GMAX-12-in-40-Volt-Cordless-Electric-Snow-Blower-Sho.... The powered brush is also another good idea for Ego, including something for their multi-head system, and is certainly something that could be used to clear snow. Personally, I prefer the idea of something that actually throws the snow some distance rather than brushes it aside a short distance, but maybe that's all you need or is better for some situations, and what's nice is that a brush could do many different things so certainly a nice addition. I just scored a reconditioned Ego snow blower off HomeDepot.com and am now anxiously awaiting some snow so I can try it out!

I’ve been waiting for Ego shovel for a while. Just signed up to say here is another customer wanting Ego Snow shovel. If they don’t release one this year, I might have to buy another manufacturer’s shovel with another battery.
