Description

The Atlas™ 80V Lithium-Ion Cordless Brushless Blower clears wide areas faster than gas, with no refueling costs, no gas/oil premix and no engine maintenance. An easy-access Turbo button generates a blast of air for clearing heavier debris. The Cruise Control lever is designed for easy one-hand operation.

Overview of the Atlas 56994

The Atlas 56994 in use

The Atlas 56994

  • Power: The Atlas 56994 can force 605 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) from its nozzle at a maximum speed of 150 MPH.
  • Power delivery: Atlas designed this unit and its brushless, battery-operated motor with top-of-the-food-chain maneuverability in mind. The 56994 doesn’t need to be plugged in, so you can take it anywhere easily.
  • Battery: The Atlas 56994 is powered by an easy-to-recharge 80 V Li-ion battery (battery not included).
  • Handling: It’s handheld, so naturally it’s easier to handle and carry than larger leaf blowers, such as backpack models or walk-behinds.
  • Speed Settings: For those who wish to have complete control while operating their leaf blower, the 56994 offers variable speed settings, and moreover, is also equipped with cruise control, which allows the user to comfortably continue blowing at their preferred setting.
  • Noise: The manufacturer specifications state that the 56994 can generate engine noise approaching 97.7 dB. This is louder than other electric handheld leaf blowers.

The Atlas 56994's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Atlas 56994 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 150 MPH, which is rather impressive for a battery-operated handheld blower. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Makita XBU01PT and its 208 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • If air volume is an important feature, the 56994 by Atlas will not disappoint. Its airflow maxes out at 605 CFM (cubic feet per minute), which is more powerful than most cordless handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the CAT DG651, with 800 CFM, could be in your good books.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other cordless blowers, the Atlas 56994 is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget blower.

    This blower is very powerful and IMO is a perfect match between CFM and MPH. I love the cruise control and the powerful battery. I have a 4.5 acre lot with lots of border trees and a big driveway. Perfect fall leaf colors too 🙂

    Caught it on sale for 79$
