Best 56V EGO Blower Reviews for 2023

best 56V EGO blowers

While a number of brands have a select few blowers that make up a small lineup, EGO’s fleet is bigger. In fact, it’s much bigger–big enough for us to do an entire best-of review on just EGO. From the most powerful to the best value, we’re here with this guide specifically to help you determine which 56V EGO leaf blower is right for you.

Where to Buy EGO Lawn Care Equipment

EGO has several retail partners around the country. Lowe’s and Ace Hardware are a couple of retailers that are accessible pretty much anywhere. For online ordering, Acme Tools, Lowe’s, and Amazon both carry a wide range of available products.

Most Powerful EGO 56V Blower

EGO 765 CFM Blower LB7654

EGO 765 CFM most powerful blower

If you want a cordless blower with the power of a gas backpack unit, then EGO’s 765 CFM blower is the model for you. Of course, not every homeowner needs that kind of power, however, EGO has other models to suit that population of consumers.

But the simple fact is that 56V EGO blowers are blazing a trail within the realm of such equipment. Indeed, we’re talking about 25 Newtons, which is what we measured in our trials.

This is the most expensive of EGO’s residential handheld offerings, but also the strongest handheld model they currently offer.

  • Air Volume: 765 CFM
  • Airspeed: 200 MPH
  • Newton Force: 25.3 N (26 N claimed)
  • Approximate Runtime w/5.0Ah Battery: 13 min (turbo), 22 min (high)
  • Weight: 4.69 lbs bare
  • Price: $229 bare, $299 with 5.0Ah battery and charger

Best All-Around EGO Leaf Blower

LB6500 650 CFM Blower LB6500

EGO 650 CFM Blower

The EGO 650 CFM leaf blower has a well-rounded balance of power and runtime. This 56V EGO blower measured 20.3 Newtons on our bench when paired with the kitted 5.0Ah battery.

You’ll get a little more (20.8 Newtons) if you pop in a 7.5Ah battery.

This is the most expensive of EGO’s residential handheld offerings, but it’s the strongest of any of their current models.

  • Air Volume: 650 CFM
  • Airspeed: 180 MPH
  • Newton Force: 20.8 (21 claimed)
  • Approximate Runtime w/5.0Ah Battery: 15 min (boost), 30 min (high), 200 min (low)
  • Weight: 4.77 lbs bare
  • Price: $259 as a kit

Best Value EGO 56V Leaf Blower

EGO 530 CFM Blower LB5302 (LB5302 kit)


The 530 CFM might surprise you. Although it doesn’t seem that impressive compared to the more powerful options EGO has, it makes quick work of blowing tasks. For just $179 with a 2.5Ah battery and charger, it’s our pick for the best value in the lineup.

  • Air Volume: 530 CFM
  • Airspeed: 110 MPH
  • Newton Force: 16.5 N
  • Approximate Runtime w/2.5Ah Battery: 10 min (boost), 22 min (high), 75 min (low)
  • Weight: 4.81 lbs bare
  • Price: $159.20 with 2.5Ah battery and charger

Most Powerful EGO Backpack Blower

EGO 56V Backpack Blower LBPX8000

56V EGO blower

When we tested the EGO Commercial LBPX8004-2 56V backpack blower, we were impressed. Indeed, this 56V EGO blower is among the most powerful we’ve ever tested. Not only was it comfortable to wear and use, but the dual battery system provided excellent runtime.

What’s more, this model has upgraded components for professional use, and notably, some of its mechanical parts are serviceable.

  • Air Volume: 800 CFM
  • Airspeed: 190 MPH
  • Newton Force: 26N (not tested)
  • Approximate Runtime w/2×6.0Ah batteries: 25 min (boost), 30 min (high), 120 min (low)
  • Weight: 16.3 lbs bare
  • Price: $399 bare, $699 with two 6.0Ah batteries, $1299 with two 10Ah batteries

Previous Model: EGO 56V Commercial Leaf Blower LBX6000

56V EGO blowers

Like the LB5302, this one surprised us. Still running a 56V platform, these tools rely on a battery backpack with a much higher capacity than even the 10.0Ah battery holds.

Similar to the backpack blower, this model puts the weight of the battery on your back but keeps the motor and impeller in line to improve its airflow efficiency.

The 56V EGO blower produced 18.2 Newtons in our testing. Though it’s not as powerful as the 650 CFM blower, its modest operation and high capacity power source help it to run longer–1 hour and 36 minutes on high to be exact.

Even on Turbo, we got 1 hour and 10 minutes out of it.

  • Air Volume: 600 CFM
  • Airspeed: 146 MPH
  • Newton Force: 18.2 N (19 N claimed)
  • Approximate Runtime w/Backpack Battery: 1 hr 10 min (boost), 1 hr 36 min (high), 5 hr 48 min (low)
  • Weight: 5.95 lbs bare
  • Price: $429 bare

More Options

EGO 615 CFM Blower LB6150

615 CFM Blower LB6150

EGO’s 615 CFM blower settles in between the 530 and 650 CFM models, providing mid-range blowing force without reaching the 650’s price point. If you already have other EGO products, the bare tool is only $10 more than the 530 at Ace Hardware.

  • Air Volume: 615 CFM
  • Airspeed: 170 MPH
  • Newton Force: 18.5 N
  • Approximate Runtime w/2.5Ah Battery: 10 min (boost), 15 min (high), 100 min (low)
  • Weight: 4.74 pounds
  • Price: $149 kit with 2.5Ah battery and charger

EGO 580 CFM Blower LB5800

LB5800 580 CFM

The 580 CFM model replaces the 575. Even though the CFM ratings are very similar, this model puts out up to 168 MPH (18 Newtons). This 56V EGO blower is a little harder to get, and it costs more than the 615 CFM blower.

That said, the kit does come with a 5.0Ah battery instead of a 2.5Ah. Either way, you might want to do some price comparison before grabbing one.

  • Air Volume: 580 CFM
  • Airspeed: 168 MPH
  • Newton Force: 18.0 N
  • Approximate Runtime w/5.0Ah Battery: 18 min (boost), 30 min (high), 200 min (low)
  • Weight: 4.77 pounds
  • Price: ~$149 (bare tool)

EGO 480 CFM Blower LB4800

Best EGO blower

EGO’s 480 CFM blower has the lowest blowing force of those models currently available. Just over $100 as a bare tool, this one is best for taking care of hard surfaces after mowing and maintaining small lawns.

The kit price is actually a little higher than the 530.

  • Air Volume: 480 CFM
  • Airspeed: 92 MPH
  • Newton Force: Not tested
  • Approximate Runtime w/2.0Ah Battery: 10 min (boost), 18 min (high), 60 min (low)

There are a number of 3-tool combos that combine a mower, string trimmer, and blower to get you started with battery-powered lawn care at a better value. Each includes EGO’s 15-inch string trimmer with Rapid Reload head and the 580 CFM blower.

The most affordable of the lot is EGO’s 21-inch push mower and a 5.0Ah battery for $669. This is best for smaller lawns that can get the mowing, trimming, and blowing done on just one battery.

Naturally, you can add more to extend your runtime.

Climbing to $809, you get the EGO LM2102SPBST 21-inch self-propelled lawn mower and a 7.5Ah battery. With that battery, you should be able to cover mowing, trimming, and blowing on lots up to a 1/4 acre easily.
