Any suggestions on a good one?
I have a backpack blower and push blower, so I don't need a crazy good handheld one, but I do want something that's pretty decent. Ideally I'd get this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01BNMP6CU as I have other of their products so I already have batteries, but it seems to be pretty weak.

Their string trimmer is heavy though, and the hedge trimmer seems heavier than others. They came out with a new 80v chain saw that has gotten very good reviews. I will grab that one of these days.
If I had to do it over though I would look at the ego line, just because the tools allow you to use batteries of different voltages; ie 20, or 40. With Kobalt and others you're stuck at the battery designed for your tool. I think eco gives you a bit more protection from them changing the line and forcing you to buy all new tools.
If you just need a hand blower look at a used Kobalt 80v on craigs list, or lowes was clearing out the old version as good prices a few weeks ago.
