Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

It comes with a powerful and efficient brushless motor.
EGO also paid attention to ergonomic considerations of users by adding a chest strap and hip belt. That’s really going to help users who have to strap this thing on for hours each day.
The EGO Leaf Blower is widely popular because of its quieter operation. With only 63 dB (A) of noise level, it is 8 times quieter than other existing models in the market.

What reviewers didn't like

However, the design suffers from a lot of weight and lower performance than most Pros require.
The unit is heavyweight.
