Will Ego ever make a snow thrower?

Hello, I've been using a few Ego tools recently and love them all. I'm shopping around for a snow thrower (i.e. a smaller snow blower / shovel hybrid) because I don't have room for a snow blower, and noticed Ego doesn't make one. 

Is there a chance Ego will ever make one? Thanks

Something along these lines? I know I'd go for something like that. It's all I'd really need here.

Exactly! I've read good reviews about that model too.

Seems like a great power head attachment to me.

I have the exact Snow Joe Snow Blower Mike references in his post. It comes in really handy for those areas where you have to throw the snow with a regular shovel some distance. I use it mainly on my back deck and it's nice to no longer have to lift a shovel over the deck's railings. The negative though is there are limited uses for it. I still use my old conventional shovel more often to clear the walkways and a regular snow blower to clear the driveway.

I could see Ego making these, but not sure how huge the demand would be. Given that we're still waiting for an improved single stage snow blower by EGO and the introduction of a two-stage snow blower...it doesn't seem like EGO is quite ready to really jump into the winter outdoor tool market with two feet quite yet.
