I was at Lowe's today and came across this blower that was on clearance for $147.57. I would have gotten it if I didnt already have a blower. I'm kind of having 2nd thoughts about it now. I might go back and get it. Should I??? It comes with 2 4Ah batteries and charger.

I've never posting the brickseek link before so I hope this works. Please let me know if it doesnt.

If all you have is a handheld blower, I say go for it. Backpack blower is a world of difference. If you already have one, but it's gas, I'd still give it a try. I got an ego one and it's awesome so far. I'd get this if I wasn't already in the ego ecosystem.

Yep I have the Kobalt 40V handheld blower. I also have a Kobalt mower and string trimmer so the extra batteries from this deal could be helpful.... hmmm, wifey wont be happy about this....

I bought one with the clearance mower and returned it. I found it wasn't as powerful as my corded Worx blower, it's quite big and kind of awkward, and turns out I didn't need the batteries. Now its probably a good deal of you can make use of the two 4ah batteries, but I don't have or want anything else in the 40v Kobalt line so I'm ok with the 5ah that came with the mower.

Also be warned that Lowes return policy says lawn equiemt has to be returned in factory sealed condition.

If I use one of those handheld ones for 10min, my back is done. Backpack I can go until battery dies

Same for me. Underwhelming power for how bulky it is. Did they give you a hassle with the return? I paid $120 so maybe I should just keep it

They didn't because I didn't really use it, and then I packaged it back up very carefully.

Me and my friends like to play this game. We blow the leaves back and forth to each others yard, on a windy day. Who ever accumulate the most junk wins. Game ends when battery dies.

Usually it is on sale but unavailable. This is available at full price. Well, different.
