As part of the Home Depot ProSpective campaign, we get sent some neat tools to try out. One of those tools this quarter is the Makita Brushless Cordless Blower kit. As soon as we opened the box, we wanted to see how this blower stacked up to our current 18v cordless blower. This fall was a perfect time to test it out, as I get a huge amount of pine straw in my front yard and normally have to use a rake to clean it up.
Next we tried the Makita blower and the first thing we noticed was how much power it had! At the top speed, it almost pushed me back with the power it had, but it was still very manageable. It's heavier then our current blower at 9.9 pounds. Although it has more weight to it, its very well balanced and does not seem to be fatiguing. I was able to get my front and back yard cleared with battery power to spare.
