I had an electric leaf blower that was TOO powerful for me. I'm a petite woman and I was always a little nervous when I used t. It was also quite heavy. I finally decided to give this cordless one a try. It is amazingly light weight. I think the battery is heavier than the blower lol. I specifically chose this one because it comes with 2 batteries and I have a rather large patio and lawn. As soon as I received the blower I charged the battery and went to work. Not really work since it's actually fun to use. I was able to do my entire patio and lawn without having to switch out batteries. The power is just right. It doesn't make me deaf and it doesn't cause leaves or debris to blow back in my face. I'm so happy I bought this and hope that it lasts for several years.
I got this for my dad, and he likes it since it is cordless, and the 2 batteries let him finish the garage, and the gardener do the driveway and sidewalks easily. Also, the sound level is reasonable (particularly compared to the obnoxious gas powered blowers the hired gardener would use if we didn't have him use ours).
This product has eliminated my need for sweeping the deck and garage. It is lightweight and easy to assemble. I like the two battery option so I have a backup if I'm in the middle of a big project.
Total game changer over my old one that needed a cord. Super light so it's easily used while Im in my wheelchair. Battery life is great, and you get 2 batteries, I cant see a situation where I'd need to stop mid job.
