Just saw this posted on Facebook by a police department up north and I think it sounds like a good way to make use of the Ego tools I do have.

Don’t worry that it sounds ridiculous, “You will only look foolish if someone sees you.”

I just hope it can handle these near-blizzard conditions!

Just got my leaf blower today and am thinking it might work as a snow blower for lighter dustings of snow. Holey moley it's strong.

My 530 did a great job of clearing the snow from my driveway sidewalks and van just the other day.

Agree. The new blower has a lot of power. We are using one with 2 2.5 amp batteries to blow needles from our Christmas tree lot. It's working great.
