Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jspro Powerful Blower for its Size
One of the first things that I noticed is that how compact this blower is making it very easy for someone to carry or store until it is ready for use. The Milwaukee blower has 3 settings for the air flow, low, medium, and high. This blower comes an extension for the nozzle and a inflator/deflator accessory for blowing up inflatables for children's party amusement products.The design of this tool can be triggered from either left or right hand it also has thumb switch to lock on the trigger for a constant on position this also has left or right capabilities. One of the things to note is that this tool does not come with a battery or charger but if you already own a Milwaukee M18 tool that battery will fit if not you will have to buy a battery and charger. When using this tool it felt very ergonomically in the hand and with its left or right capabilities of using the switch for the air flow made it very nice for for a one handed operation. Milwaukee has made a great tool for anyone who works in the construction trade or Glazier who needs to blow dirt and debris in the area that they are working in. This Milwaukee blower comes with a 5 year warranty from the original purchase date.

I purchased one for work which gets used daily and I like it so much I bought one for the house. Great for medium duty use. This will not replace a gas blower. The 4 amp batteries allow for about 15-20min run time the 5amp batteries add 5min. Very light for how much power it has. Fantastic for inside use.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by John good but not great
being small it is great for confined areas like around scrubs and bushes. not as powerful as I had hoped but does in adequate job. battery does not last as long as I was hoping before it needs charged again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TXRemodeler Good blower for it's size and weight
Let me start by saying this is a cordless compact blower so its not going to be as powerful as a large gas powered machine. However, for what it is, it's great. It's light weight and easy to use with enough power to tackle any number of household chores.

The M18 Compact blower reminded me of a hair dryer. It's power and size are very small.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hateskate Decent for some things
I found one of these on clearance and decided to give it a try. I figured i'd use it for quick cleanup in the garage or maybe drying off my motorcycle after a wash. If you're right handed this will give you fits as the air inlet is on the left side of the unit. When you hold the blower down by your side it sucks your clothing into it. It needs some work with that as it happens a lot to me. If i'd paid full price, I would've returned it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ZWAUKEE Could use more power.
Not a bad blower but could use a little more power. If your right handed using this blower the air intake sucks onto your leg if your holding it by the hip if you get to close. They should have build a round grid around the intake to avoid that from happening. All in all its an ok blower,

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JoeSchmoe Great Blower
If you do not own other M18 tools then stay away from this blower because it does not come with a battery and charger.
A battery is $99
A charger is $59
This blower is $79
The total price without tax is $237
For $200 plus tax you can buy a Dewalt 20V MAX Brushless Blower that comes with a battery & charger and it puts out 400CFM. Much more power than this blowers 100CFM and it has a VERY smooth variable speed trigger so you can use it at low air speeds. It also has a trigger lock to lock it at low thru high speed. It will be much better for leaves or heavier debris than this blower also.
I realise the M18 blower was not designed for blowing leaves and the advantage is it's compact size but the dewalt will work at low speeds for blowing off the workspace also. It is heavier and larger though.
With that said, I already have many M18 tools and this blower is most definitely worth the price if you already own M18 batteries and a charger. I absolutely love this little blower.
