About the Tool

EGO 650 CFM Blower Review

EGO 650 CFM Blower Review

One of the most contested tools in the OPE space are blowers. Right next to chainsaws, cordless blowers seem to draw a lot of questions on power, reliability and performance.

I had mixed experiences with Cordless OPE for a while, so I went into the EGO line with a fair amount of skepticism. That first trigger pull on my EGO Blower though, it had become more than evident that times had changed. EGO knew the market they wanted to go after wasn’t an easy one,  and have made the slogan “Power Beyond Belief” one of the truest statements today with their consistent quality and performance. 

 

Standout Features

EGO 650 CFM Blower ReviewFirst and Foremost, EGO manufactured this blower to improve upon their previous model, the 580 CFM Blower. This was no easy feat since it was already a top contender in the cordless OPE market. As of now, the new 650 CFM Blower is officially the most powerful Cordless Blower available.

A Variable Speed Dial provides a range of power from 225-CFM to 500 CFM, when in use, the dial allows the user to skip depressing the trigger which can come in very handy when used for extended periods.

EGO’s TURBO button allows the blower to push out it’s full 650 CFM air movement capacity. This feature is easily one of the most notable on the EGO Blower, and is a game changer for people like myself who tend to also get a fair amount of debris and wet leaves. Simply blast a built up error with the Turbo Mode and you’re good to go.

Weather Resistant Construction provides additional protection to your investment. Some of the batteries I own I have now had several years, and I have yet to have one fail on me. 


Value

EGO 650 CFM Blower Review

One of the many great aspects of the EGO lineup today, is that their price points are incredibly competitive with gas tools. It used to be that a battery tool with enough power to perform was going to come at a really high price point. Today, this blower is available Bare tool at The Home Depot- $199.00 and offer a kitted option that includes a 5.0 battery and charger, $299.00. This is honestly a great value, and I believe it clocks in lower than their previous model, particularly the kit serves a solid serving of cost savings over purchasing the battery separately. 

 

My Thoughts

With three acres of Texas property, I spend a lot of time maintaining our land. With heavy leaf collection and a driveway that spans several hundred feet, blowers are one of the tools I am the hardest on, and one I use more than most. For the last few years I have relied predominantly on the classic EGO 580 CFM Blower. While I also love their chainsaws, Mowers, and the exceptional Multi-Head System, the blower is definitely what truly sold me on the line, and I haven’t looked back.
 
EGO really has an impressive tool in their new and improved 650 CFM Blower. A few key things that have improved on this model start with their specs- 650 CFM is the most powerful cordless blower on the market today. There is more than enough power in this bad boy to move large quantities of leaves and debris, but also wet leaves (the bane of all existence), small rocks, sticks and does so with seemingly impossible power.

EGO stuck true to their stellar battery platform, using 56Volts to power their entire line. Their battery technology alone is impressive, using advanced cells and improved cooling for superior run time and life of the battery.  As well the brushless motors have made providing incredible power and performance possible, where it seemed unlikely.
 
The Turbo button is a really cool way to blast stubborn debris right out of the way quickly and when released you go right back to your standard speed. One thing I don’t think gets near the love though is the variable speed dial. There are two uses I really love to use the lowest speed on, one is wrangling leaves into piles for discarding. Hate raking? Well you’ve just met your soul mate in a tool. The second, is cleaning small amounts of dust out of the shop with. No matter what measures I take to reduce the sawdust made from woodworking, you will inevitably have some that crop up. No one, myself included wants to spend time sweeping after you finish for the day, so a light blow out of the garage door, and I save myself a step the next day. 
 
EGO did a great job of focusing on producing really well made and well performing tools that can truly compete, if not beat, gas powered OPE. If you haven’t made the switch to Cordless OPE yet, I can’t think of a better time to start than with this EGO Blower!
