I've used this for 3 years or so at home. I love it. Yes, the 56v battery makes it heavy but it comes with a shoulder strap.

There is great need for a sarcasm font.

Kimo 20 volts on Amazon $79.99. Compact, powerful and holds the charge.

One thing I've found I like is that Milwaukee offers a pretty good variety of 18 volt battery sizes. The smallest one came with a drill I bought I and I thought I'd never use that tiny battery. Turns out with some of my tools I appreciate the really light weight sometimes more than the longer run time. I don't need that big monster battery to drive a few screws or knock the leaves off the porch. Nice to have the lighter weight option.

What ever you buy, I would suggest that you see if it is compatible with something like the following. Makes it easy to clean off slideout without getting on the roof.

We have two Greenworks 40V 150 MPH Variable Speed Cordless Blower, 2.0 AH Battery Included 24252 because they are light-weight, have a long-term battery and work great. Highly recommended!

Amazon sold us both of ours, which both work perfectly. The last one we bought "renewed" but can see no difference in quality or performance.

On Amazon (Renewed) is less than $100 (includes the battery and charger)

We're happy, happy!

Cordless blower

3 months ago stopped in Home Depot and bought a Ryobi One+ cordless blower with 18 volt lithium battery. Works great, easy to handle when the wife wants to use it and doesn't take up much space in the "basement".

Bought the EGO 530 56V Blower. 110 mph wind output. Works great. Also use it to blow off truck after washing it.

5 year warranty on the leaf blower and 3 years on the charger and battery.
We liked it so much we bought another one!!
Now I can use one in each hand (and do!)
I plan on taking one along camping.
Model number?

Reporting back on blower purchase

Hi All,
Just reporting in on our purchase of Greenworks Powerall 48V. Came complete with batteries and charger ordered from Greenworks. Got 10% off coupon. I contacted them once via email with a question and got prompt response. The unit arrived quickly. We are very happy with it. Seems very powerful and will run plenty long enough for what we want to do with it. We're just blowing off a campsite, the leaves that accumulate around our house (other yard work taken care of by community we live in) and blowing off our decks. Thanks for all the good advice.

Have you used it yet and if so, how much run time are you getting?


I use it all summer around the coach to clean up grass clippings and leaves from the hedge trimmings. We keep the motorhome at a developed lot for the summer and use the blower all summer. Our motorhome neighbour has the same blower. The weight has never felt to be too much. The battery is the heaviest part of the blower for sure.

The blower has two speeds that come in very handy, sometimes full blowing is too much.

This year it came in very handy at home, with being restricted to staying at home - we had to keep the snow company. The EGO Blower does a great job clearing light snow falls and yes we have a gas blower too, however nothing is convenient as battery operated.

I got the DeWalt. It works great and shares batteries with the chain saw. The drill and screwdriver can also use the same batteries, but their native batteries are smaller and the blower and chain saw wonít use them.
