A new addition to the EGO family of OPEs - thanks Home Depot for the $10.00 OFF coupon.  Will put this new tool to the test, and come back with more detail reviews in coming days !!!!!

Sweet! That's the perfect decor for that previously empty corner! :-)

You read my mind Blue!!!!  The only "downside" to this blower is where to store it in the garage.  Because of the attachment, you really can not hang it on the wall.  I might need your "expertise" on how to store this in my garage.  Until then, this corner is the best place for it - until my wife complains about it .... : (

Too bad the blower tube joint won't allow the tube to point upwards... if it did, it could hang flat against a wall.

You can put it underneath your bed. :)

But can it mulch like a Honda Harmony?

No, but my new Honda HRR216K9VLA can mulch pretty darn well! 21" cutting path, dual blades with "micro cut" technology, self propelled, and electric start. I am pretty satisfied right now.

Can you hang it from the ceiling, close to a wall, using those hooks that people use to hang their bicycles?

A good idea Ken!  I do have one extra bicycle hook that I can use for this.  Will try it out this weekend and let you know, thanks!

Looks really cool. I'm not usually one for the looks of something, but that looks pretty awesome.

What battery did come with it?

I bought the 5.0 Ah battery kit from Home Depot.  They also sell the blower without the battery, for $100 cheaper - if you already have your own battery.  Some people have a 7.5 Ah battery, which they can use on this new blower.
