    Anyone using backpack batteries for hand held blowers your input would be greatly appreciated. We are using them only for the blowers due to new ordinance placed banning gas blowers for approximately mid spring to late summer.

Cost around 1200 us dollars (with blower included into price) Looking to purchase another back pack in the future and was looking for reviews on other brands. Power is not too bad I'll upload a video in the upcoming days.

    Update : this thing is bad a$$. I only spent two bars of battery on 14 mid sized accounts mostly cleaning walk ways and driveways and a few lawn clippings that needed to be spread out on the grass. I'm being very conservative with keeping it on low to mid power settings with the random turbo boost for the lawn clippings on the turf. Next week we are re installing the mulching kits on one of our 36 exmarks and keeping the other with a shooter for the taller grasses. :mechanic:
