Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great for moving large piles of leaves and debris
Thanks to its innovative brushless motor system, fan, and powerful batteries, this blower can move up to 530 cubic ft. or air per minute. This is an imposing figure and means that you can move around big amounts of leaves and debris.
Pro Battery upgrade is available
The blower comes with a 56 V 2.5 Ah battery that will give an average of 30 minutes of runtime. If you feel that it may not be enough you can buy larger capacity batteries, up to a whopping 7.5 Ah. While this will increase the operational time of the unit, it will also increase the weight significantly.
Pro Has a turbo mode for extra air speed
This leaf blower has a turbo mode that can be enabled using a switch situated on top of the tool's handle. It increases air speed for a limited period.
Con Can't change the speed with just one hand
The unit doesn’t come with a variable speed trigger. Instead, the speed is controlled by a dial, that is situated at the front of the unit. It feels very weird, as you need to use both hands to change the speed.
Con Can't be used for tasks that need high-speed air
The air speed of this leaf blower is not very impressive, with a maximum velocity of 115 mph. This isn’t enough if you want to remove stuck, wet leaves from your driveway.
Con Needs full operator's attention
Users need to be careful when using the unit in full power, as the battery will run out in less than 10 minutes and the sudden change of air force can potentially strain your arm.
Con Prolongated warranty available only from official dealers
The unit has a five-year warranty, but only if you buy through authorized dealers like Home Depot. Otherwise, it has two years of warranty.
