A leaf blower for those who want a cordless solution without going for a messy gas powered unit. This battery powered blower 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 than a gas-powered unit. Assuming the battery is charged, the only thing you need to do is attach it to the blower and you are ready to go. No more gas mixing and pouring or tangled extension cords.
Pro Battery can be used in other GreeWorks products
This unit uses the same 2A battery that can be found in other GreenWorks products, so you can swap it round between devices. There is also an option to buy a 4A battery, but it’s quite expensive and will make the blower heavier.
Pro Doesn't disturb others during operation
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, which is nearly as noisy as a hairdryer. Also, it doesn't produce any unpleasant fumes or smells.
Pro Perfect for small jobs
This blower can blow out air at a speed of 150 mph, which is enough for cleaning small debris and dry leaves.
Pro 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 Battery lasts longer than most electric units
The unit itself can operate for about 30 minutes straight, which is impressive compared to other alternatives that only run for about 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.
