I have an LB4800 and just noticed in the November 2015 issue of Consumer Reports that they gave a CR Best Buy rating for the LB4801.
What is the difference between the LB4800 and the LB4801?
I bought the LB4800 EGO blower about 3 weeks ago and it is already out of commission. The screen on the bottom air intake on the unit allows debris to enter too easily. A small branch got sucked into the machine and ruined the turbo fan...it shattered into small pieces. I really do like the blower...it really does a great job but I think the screen needs a redesign. Not sure if it can repaired or not? Need to make a few of phone calls.
