Seems like a decent deal. I used it to blow snow off my driveway and it was definitely an upgrade from the 20v brushless DeWalt. Better battery life, faster charger, and more power.

It's not bad but it's the older model.

If it had a larger battery I'd be in.

2 smaller batteries trump 1 larger.
Less weight to sling around, and you can be recharging one while using the other.
FWIW.

Does it come with batteries and charger?

Yea, 2.0 Ah and charger. I think it's a great deal. It's $249 for the newest version with the 5.0 Ah

Of course, the best deal is when you get something you actually need. Like I said, worked great clearing snow.

yes I jumped on that bigger one on $99 HD sale. Doubt we will see that price again for kit with battery. Lightweight and fits behind my little truck bench seat. Right or Left handed, unlike some gas models.

Has anyone used both the 530 and 575 CFM for comparison? I have the 530 now and could probably upgrade for free once I sell the battery, charger, and old blower, but not sure if it's worth the hassle.

Super price for this time of year. Never ever thought of using a leaf blower for snow. It must put out serious air!

It's no miracle worker but 1-2 inches of light, dry snow is easy. My first pass was probably close to 4 inches and that was slow going. If I had more batteries and could run it on 'Turbo' for a solid 20 or 30 minutes it would be great. I think I got 20 or so with it on high with spurts of turbo to break some stuff up.
