Description

Overview of the CAT DG651

The CAT DG651 in use

The CAT DG651

  • Power: The DG651 is a cordless blower made by CAT. It has a maximum air speed of 170 MPH and its nozzle can expel a max air volume of 800 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • Power delivery: This blower has a brushless, battery-operated motor. Thus, the user won’t have to worry about tripping over pesky cords when they’re busy working their lawn.
  • Battery: With its 5 Ah 60 V Li-ion battery (1 DG6B5 battery included), the CAT DG651 has a standard, full-charge run time of up to 110 minutes.
  • Handling: Being handheld, this blower has a good maneuverability and is meant to be easier to carry around over a small period of time. Be aware that, at 11.25 lbs, the CAT DG651 is on the heavier side of cordless handheld blowers.
  • Speed Settings: Sometimes you just need a little more power, while other times you may want a little more precision when moving leaves and debris. That’s why the DG651 features variable speed settings for added control.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 68 dB, the DG651 is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric handheld category.

The CAT DG651's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the CAT DG651 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Air exiting the nozzle of this blower can reach 170 MPH, which is quite a bit faster than most 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.
  • Regarding its air volume, the CAT DG651 boasts an impressive airflow that can reach 800 CFM (Cubic Foot per Minute). This makes it one of the most powerful cordless handheld blowers.
  • The longevity of this model’s battery is notably higher than most cordless handheld units. It offers an autonomy of up to 110 minutes. If autonomy is an important factor for you, the Toro 51822 can run for up to 140 minutes and could be worth considering.
