The Black+Decker LSW36's performance versus other blowers

  • The Black+Decker LSW36 expels air at speeds up to 120 MPH, making it standard in terms of air speed for battery-operated handheld blowers. 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.
  • It’s capable of expelling a maximum air volume of 90 CFM (cubic feet per minute). This places it at the low end compared to other cordless handheld blowers. For the highest air volume, you may want to have a look at the CAT DG651, which boasts with 800 CFM.
  • Autonomy-wise, with up to 30 minutes of autonomy on a full charge, the LSW36 is on the low end when compared with other cordless handheld units. To enjoy the best possible autonomy in this category, you could have a look at the Makita CBU01Z which offers up to 300 minutes of runtime.

POWERBOOST Technology

Black Decker Powerboost banner

POWERBOOST is one of the features of the POWERCOMMAND™ line of Black+Decker outdoor power tools. The Black+Decker LSW36 has a button that gives it a surge in blowing speed when pressed. Although POWERBOOST uses a lot of power (which drains the battery faster) , it is quite useful for loosening up those stubborn patches of debris that get stuck and otherwise refuse to budge. When POWERBOOST is used sparingly, the LSW36 enjoys a normal runtime, so this feature is definitely ideal for tackling less rigorous tasks with more precise control.

The bottom line

STRENGTHS:
  • Inexpensive
  • POWERBOOST Technology
AVERAGE SPECS:
  • Acceptable noise (66 dB)
  • Decent MPH (120 MPH)
WEAKNESSES:
  • Brushed motor
  • Low CFM (90 CFM)
  • Low autonomy (30 mins)
