Getting The Job Done Right

The Best Battery-Powered Leaf Blowers (2019)

By: Darion Robinson

I must confess I am a garden lover and I’m a bit obsessed with landscaping, I absolutely love my lawn clean and green. The simplicity in creating a natural environment around me and for people is very irresistible. Because of this, I have lots of garden tools and types of equipment at my disposal. Many people have the same passion as I do but keep buying the wrong gadgets. 

This product is a Greenwork DigiPro Brushless Blower/Vac. This blower/Vac features zero emission solutions for clearing and getting rid of debris. This technology has so much improved cleaning efficiency, 30% more torque, less noise, lower vibrations and lots of comforts.

One important cleaning and gardening tool is a wind blower. The leaf blower is the perfect gadget/tool for maintaining a clean yard. There are arrays of leaf blowers available that include gas powered, electrical powered and battery powered leaf blowers designed by different manufacturer. I prefer using the battery powered because it is handy, there is no electrical cable attached to it. So, it is easier to maneuver during use, and it is also very efficient. To save you time and help you make the right choice when buying a battery powered leaf blower, I have decided to take out a little bit of time to recommend a few based on my experience with some of these products.

Greenworks

#1

Greenworks 40V 185 MPH Variable Speed Cordless Blower Vacuum

After first use I simply loved the Greenworks leaf blower! This series from G-Max provides the same usage a gas-powered wind blower has.

It sure saves the stress of having to buy gas all the time, inhaling harmful health fumes while working with it, winterization and stressful routine management of gas-powered wind blowers.  I have used it, and it has worked just fine for me. It is easy to use, lightweight and relative lively noiseless when using it. This blower is so efficient that it gets my yard work done without the need for additional garden tools. 

The fact that it can handle both dry and wet leaves and has a speed dial that can be adjusted to 185 MPH is impressive enough. It is powered by 4.0 AH  battery and has a run time of 60 minutes1 This battery powered blower can also be used as a vacuum cleaner. It will help you pick all those stubborn leaves and debris that won’t just blow away. You can only use the blower as a vacuum by opening the gate/ bottom part of the fan, insert a collection tube to enable leaf pick.

My Impression

I’m blown away by the fantastic features and simplistic design of this product. The fact that it has a run time of one hour is just perfect for me. It has saved me the stress of having to go recharge before continuing my yard work unlike the previous blower I have used. It is so easy to use. I feel this blower is the archetypal battery powered wind blower. I’m highly recommending this in particular.

What could be better?

his lightweight wind blower/ vacuum is just perfect for me; I only wish the vacuum function is as efficient as the leaf blower function. 

More features:

– This tool is compatible with other Greenwood G-max batteries models 29462, 29472 and charger model 29482.
– The gate/ bottom part of the blower has a cover that protects the user from getting into the spinning impeller of the blower
– It comes with a safety feature: a safety switch on the gate. If the gate mistakenly gets opened during use as a blower, it will stop the blower from running.

Greenworks 40V Cordles Trimmer & Blower Combo Pack STBA40B210

Greenworks G-MAX cordless leaf blower is battery powered, and it is just perfect for tidying up your yard. It is powered by a 2.0 amp hour lithium battery, has a run time of about 35 minutes and It is very efficient in sweeping and gathering any dead leaves and debris.

It comes with up to 6-speed, and variable speed dial is as much as 150MPH. Because it comes with a two-piece blower tube, it is much easier and efficient in sweeping and blowing. I think it is something any serious-minded lawn owner should add to his tool shed.

My Impression

I have been using wind blowers for a long time, and this product certainly ranks highest in terms s of satisfaction I have gotten amongst many wind blowers I have used. I like it because it doesn’t make noise and its routine maintenance is minimal. All I do is recharge the battery and use it any time the need arises.

What could be better?

I am not particularly satisfied with the run time. Sometimes, my yard is just all littered and could take more than 35 minutes to achieve the desired result I want. So, a backup battery is sometimes needed.

More features:

– Extension of tube helps increase reach and blower efficiency
– It’s lightweight hence, very easy to use.

Worx Turbine 56V Cordless Blower

#3

Worx Turbine 56V Cordless Blower with Brushless Motor

The WORX WG591 is a very powerful leaf blower. Leaves, debris, and other dirt cannot stand its efficacy. It has variable speed dials which are a good thing, in that, it allows the user to control and regulate the speed to suit what he wants. 

From gently sweeping the front porch to gathering leaves in the yard. This product comes with 56V, 2AH lithium batteries, turbine technology and a brushless motor that deliver up to 465cfm.  It is straightforward to handle, and it is lightweight. I particularly like it because it because the battery is interchangeable with other 56 volt tools in its lineup. Worx turbine 56 V blower with brush monitor has a blowing speed of 125 MPH and 465 CFM output with turbo boost and variable speed.

My Impression

I love the fact that the WORX WG591 blows quite well, I have used blowing machines in the past that have acted as a sweeper but weren’t useful in routing leaves in my lawn. WORX WG591 is just super active. It can blow anything off.

What could be better?

I feel the battery should be made to last longer because its run time averages just about 15 minutes.

More features:

– Weight is 8.1 lbs, and its ergonomic design ensures optimal weight distribution.
–  It has a keyhole-shaped cut out that allows you to hang it on a hook.
– The turbine face technology also delivers very effective cleaning due to the practical, high capacity air volume it generates.

Worx WG546.2

#4

Worx WG546.2 2-Speed Cordless and Battery-Powered Leaf Blower with 2 Batteries

Just like the rest of Worx products, this battery powered leaf blower is highly efficient but slightly different. It comes with two powerful 2.0V lithium batteries so that the run time is extended. This means that you can charge one battery while using the other.

Like most other battery powered leaf blower/ sweeper, it saves you the stress of working with noise and the hassle of maintaining a combustion engine.

My Impression

I think the WORX WG546.2 is good; I love the handling. It doesn’t put too much pressure on the arm, and it is efficient in when working in enclosed areas. The fact that it has two batteries to work with is also a plus.

What could be better?

I do not like the fact that the batteries can take between four to five hours to charge and can be used up between ten to fifteen minutes on high speed and just 20 minutes for low speed. The power could be made to last longer.   

More features:

– High capacity air volume with turbine fan technology, (340 CFM)
– It is, and its ergonomic design evenly distributes the weight when handled.
– It has hyper stream air nozzle for extra harsh conditions.

#5

BLACK+DECKER LSWV36 40-Volt Lithium Cordless Leaf Blower

This product is something I highly recommend because it is ideal for clearing almost everything. Sideways, walkways, hard surfaces, etc. it comes with a rechargeable 40V 1.5AH lithium battery.

 It is also used for vacuuming and quite easy to convert to vacuum mode for getting rid of debris from hard surfaces such as the garage, patio, and decks, etc. it comes with half-bushel collection bag whose content that can be used and dumped when vacuuming. It is noiseless and gives a very smooth operation and has a built-in scraper that enables the user to loosen tangled leaves and debris while working. Black Decker Lswv36 weighs just 5.4 pounds with a soft grip handle wide enough for use with gloves.

My Impression

I think this product is best suited for light work. It doesn’t blow tough materials the way a more powerful blower will. However, the battery is good, and it lasts well.

What could be better?

I figure if this blower is built in with more power, its efficiency will significantly increase and It will be more suited for a more extensive array of harsh blowing and cleaning jobs

More features:

– Has no emission while in use
– 6.9 pounds weight capacity in vacuum mode
– Low noise design for smooth and quiet operation

Toro 51701 Cordless 20-Volt Leaf Blower (2-Speed)

Now, I like this one. Toro is a 20 volts Max sweeper. If you are looking for a leaf blower for a delicate and light job, Toro is just perfect for you. Its ergonomic design makes it very easy to handle. 

It has a lightweight of only about five pounds, and you can almost go anywhere with it. With its soft grip and easiness on the hand, getting tired isn’t a thing to get worried about.  This leaf blower is very portable and has only 2-speed air control that provides adjustable power for almost any kind of blowing task. For a lightweight leaf blower, Toro has a maximum air speed of 120 MPH Toro can be used as a sweeper for hard surfaces such as a walkway, decks, patio, etc. the fact that it comes with lithium batteries makes it more efficient than blowers with the traditional nickel-cadmium batteries.

My Impression

I think Toro is the perfect lightweight leaf blower with a maximum speed you can get. It is just perfect for light jobs. It does quite well in cleaning hard surfaces too. With its soft grip and easiness on the hand, getting tired isn’t a thing to be worried about.

What could be better?

DEWALT DCBL790H1 40V MAX 6.0 Ah Lithium Ion XR Blower

The DEWALT DCBL 790H1 40V MAX 6.0Ah Lithium, ion XR blower is fast and efficient. It is perfect for clearing out heavily littered yards, pavement, walkway, etc. 

its brushless motor technology enables it to deliver an air speed of up to 120 miles per hour and 400 CFP minute of air volume. It’s powered with a 6Ah battery which is quite a lot for its size.  Dewalt DCBL is designed with an impact resistant Xenoy housing which naturally increases its life span and ensures durability no matter how constantly it is being used. 

It is, and its ergonomic design is engineered with a variable speed trigger and speed lock to ensure a reasonable amount of control without holding the trigger during use. Another amazing thing about DELWAT DCBL design is that its curved tube design makes it possible for good rotational control which helps reduce fatigue when working. I figure this leaf blower was made to withstand the stress of constant usage and built to last long.

My Impression

Dewalt makes some excellent gadgets, and this is just another piece of their genius. Excellent, robust and highly efficient. I like the fact that its industrial designs make it balanced and when shoulder straps are connected to it, it makes using it very easy. 

What could be better?

I don’t like the fact that I have to adjust air output using a roller switch and on/off switch. This can certainly get better. A simple trigger would have been just fine.

More features:

– Comes with a 40V MAX XR 6.0Ah Lithium battery with charger.
– Has an airspeed of 120MPH and 400 CFM
– Its Ergonomic design and light weight makes it very easy to handle and prevents fatigue during use.

#8

DEWALT DCBL720P1 20V MAX 5.0 Ah Lithium Ion XR Blower

Though, DEWALT DCBL720P1 20V MAX 5.0 Ah lithium-ion XR brushless blower is not as mighty as the 4 volts DEWALT leaf blower but equally very efficient. It is cheaper, has an excellent grip and very easy to use. If you want to do light yard work, this product is just perfect.

It is particularly useful for sweeping hard surfaces and general yard cleaning work. Just like the 4volts Dewart leaf blower that has a rounded bottom, because of its ergonomic design, it is effortless to handle, and even weight distribution is achieved which is a good thing because it eases the stress of carriage during use.

My Impression

I feel this 20 volts DeWalt leaf blower is just as efficient as the 40-volt leaf blower. It is easy to handle and has all the features of the 40 volts except for the wind speed and use for hefty work

What could be better?

I cannot argue the fact that it’s a good product, but I can’t help pointing out it lacks a bit of power.

More features:

– This product comes with a brushless motor which helps in maximizing motor efficiency and durability.
– Its Ergonomic design and light weight makes it very easy to handle and prevents fatigue during use.
– The axial fan design maximizes air output which increases the run time
– 400 CFM and 90 MPH

It was inspired by advanced aeronautics technology to deliver power for the perfect yard or less cumbersome sweeping work.  It is ideal for all kinds of surfaces, sweeping off matted debris and leaves tangled with roots.
