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.
  • 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 EGO LB7654, which boasts with 765 CFM.
  • Users can expect a maximum autonomy of 20 minutes from its battery, which means the NSW18 won't run as long as many other cordless handheld units before needing to be plugged in. To enjoy the best possible autonomy in this category, you could have a look at the Toro 51822 which offers up to 140 minutes of runtime.

The bottom line

STRENGTHS:
  • Lightweight (4.8 lbs)
AVERAGE SPECS:
  • Acceptable noise (65 dB)
  • Decent MPH (120 MPH)
WEAKNESSES:
