Cordless blowers

Hi. Anyone carry around a compact cordless rechargeable blower for blowing off camper roof, campsite pad, etc.? Which one, do you like it, where did you get it? We are shopping for one that we could also use at our small home blowing off deck, carport, a few leaves. THX

We use mother nature. If she wants it clean she makes it windy otherwise we enjoy nature as it is.

We had a Black & Decker blower fr home. Bought it so batteries for other tools would work. Decided to take it on our trip to Alaska. Found so many uses for it including getting campfires started. Now it's a standard tool which we take.

I would love to have a cordless leaf blower, but can't find one with enough run time for my needs!

We bought a 20V cordless Kobalt leaf blower from Lowes for $99.89 last fall. Quiet, 54 minute run time. Comes with one battery and a charger. Has a gauge right on the battery showing run time left--if you push the button.
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.

Ego. They make great Li ion batteries and tools. Not the cheapest, but I'm very happy with the trimmer, blower and lawn mower they make. We often travel with the blower.

I have a Ryobi that operates on either 120v or battery. The small batteries won't last long but the larger ones will run for 10-15 minutes easily.

X2 on the E-GO. They now make an extension tube kit that with it's gutter clean out attachment, I didn't have to go on the roof of my sister's coach to clean off all the pine needles. Good strong machine.

BillyandKris-

Here's a link to the Black and Decker 20V blower we use (model LSW20).

Pros:
- Same battery pack for blower, hedge trimmer, string trimmer and inexpensive cordless drill
- Lightweight (I'm able to carry it up the coach's ladder)

Cons:
- Smallest battery pack runs blower for 10 minutes or so
- Not as powerful as a corded blower

I bought the Ryobi compact blower to use in my workshop. Although it doesn't have the power of the larger ones, it works really well. One nice feature is it has three levels of power and each one is variable speed.
since I already had many Ryobi 18 volt tolls, the batteries are interchangeable. I also use it to blow off my motorcycle after i wash it.

I actually got it free when I purchased their cordless jigsaw.

Well I already had a plethora of Milwaukee tool so I went with the Milwaukee yard tools including the large and small blowers. I use the large one around the house and the small one gots in the RV. I have since added the chainsaw, Hatchet (mini chainsaw trimmer), line trimmer and hedge trimmer and not disappointed in any of them.

I use the large 18v Milwaukee unit with a 12amp battery and I get almost a 2 hour run time.

I bought a small Greenworks unit at Lowes. It's just the right size for bowing off a patio without making a lot of noise. I mounted the charging unit to the frame rail and plug it in as needed.

Mother Nature may cause debris to fall on the patio slab, awning and slide covers, but Mother Nature typically doesn't come along and blow it off.
