A leaf blower for those who don’t like the messy gas powered ones but don’t want to be limited to the cord. Despite being a relatively cheap battery powered leaf blower, it can run for impressive time periods.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Hassle-free operation
The biggest advantage of owning a battery powered equipment is that it takes much less effort to prepare the unit for work. Assuming the battery is charged, the only thing you need to do is plug it in the leaf blower and you are ready to go. No more gas mixing and pouring or tangled extension cords.
Pro Has versatile batteries
The unit uses a 2A battery that can be found in other GreenWorks products so you can swap them. There is also an option to buy a 4A battery, but it’s quite expensive and will make the blower heavier.
Pro Neighborhood friendly
This blower doesn’t run on a loud gas engine, so you won’t blow out your eardrums or wake up the whole neighborhood every time you do yard work. It produces only about 60 dB of noise, being just nearly as noisy as a hairdryer. Also, there will be no fumes and smells that may be unpleasant for some.
Pro Perfect for small jobs
The unit can accelerate wind to the speed of 150 mph. This should be enough for cleaning of small debris and dry leaves once in a while.
Pro Has a decent warranty
The warranty period is four years for the unit, but you need to keep in mind that the battery is only covered for two years.
Pro Ample battery
The unit itself can operate for about 30 minutes straight, impressive compared to other alternatives that only can last for 15 minutes.
Con Limited functionality
The blower can’t be converted to a mulcher or vacuum in any way. Same goes for the nozzles. There are no extra interchangeable nozzles to swap. This is a good thing if you are only looking for a basic leaf blower and don’t want to pay extra for additional functionality.
