Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Noah A worthy unit
Echoing other reviews; it is small, light, not as forceful as a leaf blower though it will blow leaves well enough from the valleys of my roof, and the near to me of the roof gutters, and other places hard to sweep. Not so well on Maple seedlings, that have experienced rain, even though now dry.
It is reasonably quiet for what it is. I can sense that the slower two settings may come in handy, though as yet I have not used them.
It is smaller than normal leaf blowers, which makes it easy to maneuver.
The rubber snout gives it a welcomed 'soft touch'.
I intend to create an inlet extension with side holes about it, to eliminate the suck ones pant leg aspect, which is not a huge bother if using it left handed or just being aware when right handed.
And I may create an adapter for the tip to angle the blow direction.
It does eat batteries, but all higher speed units do, and this lasts long enough, that if you have two batteries most jobs will get done without waiting too long on the 1st one finishing its recharge if there's a bit more to do.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BH Great little tool!
Great addition to your m18 tools. This little thing is used everyday for keeping the shop clean. I'm impressed with it much like all of my m18 and m12 tools!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by hawaiiguy Does it come in adult size?
That's exactly what I said to customer service when I returned this an hour after purchase, she laughed, yet agreed when she pulled it from the box to make sure it was okay. My partner has Ridgid, I have Milwaukee both our tools are excellent top quality. He had just gotten the ridgid jobsite 18v blower (280cfm) and he actually bought this for me as I have my Ryobi gas blower and he thought it would be a nice addition to my tools, as did I. We both kinda laughed as soon as I opened it when we saw how tiny it was, bottom line it isn't a class leader in anything as it says on the box, I question the 100cfm rating thats hidden in the manual as well. Barbie and Ken can style their hair with it, but as for blowing a couple hours worth of sawdust from framing in a patio cover...stick with gas or buy the Ridgid.

I don't write a lot of reviews but I thought this one was worth the time. Very easy to use and can clean a area up in no time!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill This is a great blower, does the job at my house
I use mind for blowing off the drive way and inside the garage. Here, where we live, the winds can get gusty and a bunch of red dust can get all over the place. Ni biggie, just pull out the blower and blow everything off and before you know it, good as new.
Make note, one thing that I have not been able to do is to blow deep tree leaves from the thick grass were have in our yards. A strong gas blower is needed for that, but if needed for a small light duty job, this is the blower to get. I ordered mine before the release and that was about 3 months prior. Then it was going for $99. Now I see the blower is $79. This is getting better all the time.
BTW, the charge will last a while with a fully charged M18 battery, even longer with the v4 or v5 battery.
If I ever need to buy another one, you can bet I will buy this one again.

I bought this blower because it uses the same battery as some of my other cordless Milwaukee tools. I have used it several times and find it to be powerful enough for my use. I have used it to blow leaves and debris and to blow dust in my workshop. It has worked well so far. I do not think it is powerful enough to blow wet leaves, but I haven't tried yet. The battery holds out sufficiently long to have enabled me to accomplish whatever I have tried so far.
