[Costco] Work 56v leaf blower - Orillia location

Saw this at the Orillia Costco location. Currently going for $300+ at Lowes and about $199 USD at various US online sites.

I think this is pretty hot. The battery + charger worth $200 already. Has anyone found it at Brossard store?

Has anyone used a battery powered leaf blower before?

How does the power compare to a gas powered blower?

I've used electric blowers before and using a cord was pretty bad, but I also found that they were underpowered compared to gas.

I have used all three type of blowers: Gas, Battery, electric cord. Battery is good for you don't have a very long power cord. Gas too much noise.

They're getting pretty good now. Landscaping professionals would still probably laugh at them, but I have the Milwaukee M18 FUEL blower and it's great for clearing the drive way, steps, and small yard. Just got it this summer so I haven't fully tested it on wet fall leaves though. Mine's 18V so this 56V should have noticeably more power.

Good for a homeowner who isn't expecting tons of power and wants a low maintenance tool. Not good for pros or people with big yards.

They still are underpowered compared to gas unless you go with a backpack style blower than you will get a bit closer contest in power and slightly longer duration but still far from gas.

The comparison video shows the Work one only lasted 6 mins on high setting and doesn't even look as powerful compared to EGO and others.

The Devil made me buy it - RFD. :twisted:
