Backpack blowers have become popular because bigger motors mean more power. But, as a rule, most are gas-powered, which means noise, fumes and heat. EGO has the exception to that rule with their new lithium ion cordless backpack blower.

The turbine fan in this unit is inspired by jet-engine design and turned by a brushless motor which uses the battery power super efficiently. What that means for you is it moves up to 600 cubic feet of air per minute. That’s an industry best and equates to a wind of 145 mph. And, it’s 8 times quieter than gas-powered backpack blowers.

It is available at The Home Depot.
