Milwaukee Blower 2728-21HD

Milwaukee just entered the OPE market with their new Milwaukee blower.  Yes, they had a compact blower on the market for a while, but that was really designed for small clean up jobs.  With this blower, it’s designed for full clean up either on the job site or lawns.  I believe Makita was the first to enter this market and we have had a chance to test their OPE products out and love them.  Then I believe Dewalt was next.  While we tested them out, I can say I have had a lot of use with them, so it’s...

Black & Decker Lawn Tools

I am not sure what you think of when you hear the name Black & Decker.  For me two things come to mind.  First is a company that has a long history of making products.  Second is the Dust Buster.  I remember those old Dust Busters. While they were a cool invention and meant you didn’t have to break out the vacuum, it would last for about two minutes.   Just enough time to pick up those 8 Cheerios.  Good thing battery technology has changed because now they are night and day.  Speaking of that, we will be having...

Ego Blower

You may or may not know, but Ego is pretty new to OPE.  Since they have come out, they have been turning heads.  Not only has the consumer been more intrigued by their quality products, but other OPE manufacturers have been trying to play catch up with Ego.  Well Ego did it again with the new Ego Blower.  They just introduced a new 56v blower, which is a step up from their LB4801. Ego has managed to increase the cfm while lowering the weight and size of the blower.  The new blower has a total of 530 cfm while the...
