My Review of the EGO Power+ LB6153 615 CFM Leaf Blower



This is the second EGO blower I’ve owned. When I bought the first one about 6 years ago, I remember feeling like paying 200$ for an electric leaf blower was crazy. But, I had previously bought the EGO weed trimmer and was really pleased with the EGO brand despite its higher price than other products. Fast forward 6 years later, and that first EGO blower quit working. It turned out to just be dry bearings, and my dad was able to fix it and it still works! During the time it was down though, I figured it was dead for good so I immediately went down to ACE Hardware and bought this newer version of the leaf blower. It was around $230 there. I been using this one for about a year now.


What I Like About The EGO Power+ LB6153

Power - Air Speed - CFMs

So the main feature your looking for in a blower is the power or the wind speed. They claim this one will create “170 mph air speeds with ease”. I don’t know if that’s true, but I can confirm that this blower will move mass. The also rate it at 615 CFM or cubic feet per minute. I assume they figure this out in a wind tunnel or something.

My yard has huge live oaks and the leaves are a serious issue, especially first of the year. I could not function at all if I didn’t have a kick ass blower. I blow leaves into giant piles and then bag them. This blower will easily herd 10-20 bags of leaves into a pile in about 30 minutes.

Variable Trigger

This is a great feature of this blower. So what this means is you can run this blower at low speeds or full throttle by just barely pulling the trigger and it’s pretty quiet. This is handy when your at a campground and want to blow debris off your site at night but don’t want to be disrespectful to the other campers. You can watch the video where I demo this in way too much detail.

Battery Life

I am pleased with the battery life. Compared to my old Ryobi, the EGO batteries last much longer and put out more power. I have two different versions of the battery that fit all of my EGO products. I believe one is a 56Volt 7.5Ah and the newer one is 56 Volt 4.0Ah. The newer one has a handy level indicator and it lasts a bit longer some how.

So how long do these batteries last when using? They say 75 minute run time. Well I can blow off my huge driveway, walkway, back porch, and a little bit if my garage once a day for a bout 5 days before I need to swap out the battery. Now this is me not using the “Turbo” mode much as it’s overkill for what I’m doing.

So far in the 6 years and 4 batteries I own by EGO, none of them have failed! The they charge pretty fast too!

5-year limited warranty

This is a great warranty for an electric tool! This doesn’t cover the battery, just the tool. The battery has a 3 year warranty.

My Only Gripe

Despite how I will cheer for the EGO brand all day, ergonomically this thing just doesn’t sit in my hand at the perfect angle for me. For my height of 5’10” the nose of this things just falls forward and basically will hit the ground unless i grip it to raise the barrel up to the perfect angle (see video), which upsets my tendonitis or carpal tunnel or both. That’s just me though. But….the earlier version of the EGO blower I mentioned does sit more balanced, but it doesn’t have the power or the variable trigger so it’s really not an option for me any more.

If your older, have injuries or just don’t need the power of the newer versions, I’d recommend this older better balanced version:



In life you will never regret buying a quality tool that you use often. It’s always worth the extra money. You know what I’m talking about. EGO products are top shelf tools. They are built to last, and just have features and design aspects others don’t.

Another thing I probably should have mentioned earlier in the review is this blower is just how solid this thing is built. The plastic material the body is made of can take some drops without any bad effects. This is not basic plastic, it’s some sort of very thick synthetic material. Not picking on Ryobi, but this thing is built way tougher.




170 mph air speed (hurricane force winds!) or 615 cubic feet per meter for the real nerds.

They run for about 75 minute according to the website, and that’s about what I’m getting from my own experience.

I am running 4 EGO batteries I got from purchasing other EGO tools with no issue, and the oldest battery is about 6 years old. They are holding up rather well!

You get the blower, a battery and a charger.
