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.

Overview of the Atlas 56994

The Atlas 56994 in use

The Atlas 56994

  • Power: The 56994 is a cordless blower made by Atlas. It has a maximum air speed of 150 MPH and its nozzle can expel a max air volume of 605 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • 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 2.5 Ah 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. When compared to other cordless handheld blowers, the Atlas 56994 stands out due to its lower weight: just 4.6 lbs.
  • Speed Settings: With its variable speed settings, the Atlas 56994 allows you to precisely control its air output. In addition, the blower is also equipped with cruise control, with which the user can easily maintain the selected settings.
  • Noise: Note that this blower is somewhat on the noisy end of electric handheld blowers, as its engine can reach an operating noise level of around 97.7 dB.
