I understand that by running the 530 CFM blower in the turbo mode I will see reduced run time. However I am wondering if I will do any damage to the motor by running it in the turbo mode for extended periods of time?

Like anything, the harder you work something the less time it will last. However, I still consider that to be normal wear.

In a word, NO, so go ahead and crank it up! If you can wear it out in 5 years or less it's covered by Ego's 5 year warranty.
