Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RP Battery doesn't always charge
Worked great out of the box and initial battery charge lasted a total of about 30-45 minutes and has a very easy handle, light weight, powerful air speed. However, once the charge expired, I charged it overnight, and it didn't work, battery still indicated it needed charging. Unplugged, took battery out and plugged back in -several times - all indicating it was charging. Another overnight and still no use. Finally, the third morning, it worked. Not sure why that happened, but I'll keep watching it and if it takes that long each time, I'll return it. If not for that (hopefully) one-time battery issue, I love it!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Meridian Good value. It does the job.
I like the product since I do not have to mess with gasoline, tuneup, and other inconveniences associated with gasoline blower. Most of my needs are of light blowing. As such, this unit is quite satisfactory. There are times I wished it had more power, though.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by claha Ok but the 18 volt is cheaper and as good
We have bought both the 18 volt blower and the 40 volt blower. The power for both is about the same and the run time is about the same. for the Price, the 18 volt is the better purchase.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Thehistorian Poor battery life, just 15 minutes!
I thoughta 40 volt battery would last longer than 15 minutes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kat my first battery operated blower!
The blower is so lightweight and very comfortable to handle. It doesn't take that long to recharge the battery. From my past experience with a gas blower, this one is hands down way better. I don't have to worry about mixing oil with the gas or even going get gas for it. I also don't have to worry about trying to start it by pulling and pulling then flooding it and have to wait. We got ours on sale so I would recommend going to your local friendly Home Depot and pick up a blower for yourself. You won't regret it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TurboTom I like it... but "fingers crossed"!
Out of the box the blower ran just a few minutes then stopped completely. I popped the battery back on the charger which then showed "defective". In the initial charge cycle it was fine. So, I box it back up and drove back to the store. Quick exchange for a complete new unit and I'm back in business. Now two weekends later and I have used it several times, recharged it several times and no problems.
I like the blower. It's not "gas blower" powerful but close. The battery lasts a long, long time and the convenience of being able to just grab it and go is great. Fingers crossed that the initial defective battery/charger problem doesn't reappear.

I received this product to try out and so far am thoroughly impressed. For me, it has held it's charge for around 20-25 minutes of continuous use. It really is quite powerful, although not as powerful as our electric, but definitely enough to get most major jobs done (ie clearing leaves from the driveway/yard). The fact that you don't have to plug it in or fill with gas is a major perk, but the best for us, is the weight. It's very light and super easy to use. My 75-80 year old in-laws can even use it with ease, and we will be purchasing one for them. Would definitely recommend this product.
