    I don’t like dealing with cords so I thought this ATLAS 40v blower would be a good addition to my outdoor arsenal especially since I had such good luck with a battery operated Black and Decker 20v weed trimmer. Unfortunately, this particular machine does not cut the meat. Save your money!! Battery life is really bad. You’re lucky if you get ten minutes out of a charge. I thought the price was fair and I did use a 20% off Harbor Freight coupon to purchase the blower along with a battery and charger. But the value greatly diminished with the very weak battery and, as a consequence, performance. Based on my experience, I would never buy another ATLAS product. You can live with this one if you buy several expensive batteries and rotate the charging during a job. But if this is the best they can do with a blower, for heavens sake don’t by a mower or anything else they make!!! This one I’m giving away at my next garage sale. I’m still in the market for a decent blower. Thumbs down!!

    + PROS: Portability - not heavy. Lightweight - nice design even though it's plastic. Battery does charge quickly
    - CONS: When in use, battery discharges quickly. Not a lot of life out of a charge. Big negative for me.
