    Arrow Cordless Leaf Blower?

    I'm looking for a battery operated leaf blower to blow the dust, grass and other debris off my new X590 lawn tractor and my good old 1995 1070. I probably wouldn't be using it for much else. Maybe a bit of driveway cleanup after mowing. No heavy duty leaf moving. I'd like to stay around $200 or less. Any suggestions?

    Dewalt makes one for the 20 volt system that I believe is the best around.

    Do you already have any cordless tools, or will the leaf blower be your first?

    Black and Decker 20V is very light weight, and does for me everything you say you want. You can find it for less than $60 including battery and charger. I have 2 of them, one for garage and one for my barn, both blowers for at least 10 years with no problems.

    When I started to switch from Black and Decker to Dewalt cordless tools 2 years ago, I bought their 20V 5Ah leaf blower. In my opinion, it's not worth the added $100+ cost over the B&D considering your planned limited use of it. It's a decent leaf blower, just to much money for blowing off the tractor and a patch of driveway.

    But, if this will be your entry into Dewalt cordless, and you anticipate adding drills, impact wrench, saws, etc. later, you might as well get your first Dewalt battery and charger now.

    Why not try a $25 blower,, for machine cleanup,, it will be perfect.

    https://www.amazon.com/Greenworks-24...ds=leaf+blower

    If you really need more, the $25 education will be cheap.
    DO NOT spend $200 on the first one,,

    I have had the corded blower for over 2 decades,,
    Only recently, I decided I wanted a more powerful one,,
    I now, also, have a $500 Stihl backpack blower.

    After cleaning our deck one time,, I was convinced I waited too long to get the Stihl.

    Handheld blower

    Battery power tools are getting better all the time. I gave up on corded leaf blowers. I have 2 Stihl gas powered blowers that are incredibly reliable. I have battery powered drills, saws, lights, impact drivers, hedge trimmer, and lights. My blower needs at the farm are for long drives, extensive parking areas. I have one for the main house, garage, drive, patio. The other is for the long drive, barn, driveways and parking areas there. The Stihl blowers are light enough to do the job, and they are strong enough, too. The battery powered ones were about the same weight, but I wasn't convinced they'd last. Im tired of all the receptacles needed to keep all the tools charged. Battery technology is improving, but not up to my standards for longevity and power vs weight. Handheld Stihl blowers are superior, in my opinion - especially for my use. At another home I have a Stihl backpack blower/mosquito fogger. Because I need the fogger, it's great, but as a blower it's too cumbersome for the farm. YMMV

    My daughter has this one. Works great and she loves it. Plus she has other tools in this line. Length of use is her biggest complaint. However she loves not having to deal with gas.

    My girlfriend just bought a Stihl BGE71 blower. However it runs on 110AC vs a battery. It replaced a B&D POS that had a problem. She absolutely loves it. Blower also has 2 speeds witch is nice. She's another one that doesn't want to deal with gas. Plus for her the gas ones are too heavy and hard to start.

    I have a Stihl SH86C-E handheld blower/Vac. This is a 2 stroke unit. The battery tools just don't have the power or run long enough for what I need. I also have back problems so the backpack models are out of the question. This tool also uses the easy to start technology. Before it I had a small Weed Eater 2 stroke handheld blower. The thing was so cheep it didn't even have a throttle. Just a choke/run lever. Let me tell you that thing was like pull starting a Mack truck. The pull rope was what finally did it in. It got to the point where the rope wouldn't retract any more. Took it apart to try and fix it. Ended up using my arm to clean my work bench off and into a trash bag. lol
    Also use the Stihl to blow my tractor off after every use.

    Check out these two threads. I think someone has talked about them.
    When funds are available I will be getting the Dewalt

    I have the DeWalt one and am VERY happy with it, we use it all the time to blow the deck off and garage out. My neighbor has the Milwaukee version that's identical except for the color and battery configuration.

    Hiya,

    I have a Ridgid vacuum that the power head is detachable and functions as a hand held blower. It's only drawback is that it's AC powered so I don't know if it will meet your needs however. I find it worked great blowing off my 2520 after mowing.

    Years ago I had a Dirt Devil shop vac that did the same thing. It did work pretty good as a blower. However it was not up to moving yard debris. Plus if I killed it doing blower work I'd be out a vacuum.
    It probably would work good for blowing off a tractor.
