The Black+Decker NSW18's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Black+Decker NSW18 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Forced air leaving this blower’s nozzle has been clocked at 120 MPH. That makes the NSW18 average 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.
  • Its max air volume rating (90 cubic feet per minute) means it is really not the biggest air producer of cordless handheld blowers. For the highest air volume, you may want to have a look at the Ryobi RY404100, which boasts with 730 CFM.
  • Autonomy-wise, with up to 20 minutes of autonomy on a full charge, the NSW18 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 EGO POWER+ LBX6000 which offers up to 96 minutes of runtime.
