my corded vac n sack is dying and I am also getting less nimble on 2 feet sure wish I had a dependable cordless vac n sack/blower from Ego as I use current one less than 3 feet from swimming pools edge rather not become a crispy critter!  you say your innovative so how about it you already have a blower so creating a vac part is already halfway done.

Would also love to see a vacuum option on a blower. I have a Troybilt gas model that does both, so this is the only gas tool I still use.  All Ego need to do is add a switch, a flow diverter valve and a bag.

I have the same situation - need a vac to get the leaves off my swimming pool deck. You are right, should be easy to convert a blower to a vac - I have have a B&D one with a winnie battery that is underpowered and the battery is slowly dying anyway.
Just a small modification of the existing blower. Seems like a no brainer.

I posted this same request 1.5 years ago and never heard anything. I have the Toro and like it but would love not having to drag the cord all over the place and especially when it goes across pool! Vacuuming leaves in the Fall is the only way to go. I would also recommend the fan blade be metal to prevent breaking like the plastic types.
