Very windy yesterday night, basically negated all the sweeping I did the same afternoon. Now you guys have me bookmarking a leaf blower.

DeWalt has a system that uses the same battery for 20V and 60V tools. No idea how well it works.I think it is pretty hard to beat Ryobi on value.
If you just bought a home and needed a whole suite of tools, one of those brushless Ryobi kits that I see pop up on slickeals where you get a circular saw, drill, impact driver, reciprocating saw, and some random other tool plus a couple 18V batteries would be an easy choice.
If you aren't going to be using them daily on job sites, it is a perfectly good system to buy into, lot of options and the tools are all decent.
Although if you are looking at blowers and stuff...are you looking at higher voltage systems? If you get a 40V blower or something, it doesn't really matter if it matches your hand tool battery brand.
The battery is a huge fraction of the cost of those things, so it's nice to be able to get the tool-only version if you already have the battery from another purchase.That one battery system shit is bullshit. Also, fuck you Ryobi. I bought a fucking jigsaw, got home, opened it to use and couldn't do a fucking thing with it. Their fucking tools don't come with goddamn batteries. Imagine buying a cellphone and not being able to use it unless you buy separate power source? How the fuck you gonna sell power tools without any fucking power. Assholes.
It's 1 battery. 3x the Ah running 20v than 60.3 20 volt batteries? You need a fuckin' crane to lift that beast.
Before batt tools they were the workhorse drills in construction. I still have a corded 1/2" pistol and a sawzall that ended up in my garage for when shit gets serious. Their 1/2" rt angle head drill was also a beast. It made a great driver on a hot tap machine good smooth variable speed triggers.I'm a big fan of the Milwaukee tools I have, and they go on stupid sales at home depot regularly.
