Description

The DEWALT Backpack Blower features a brushless motor and a 40V 7.5Ah battery giving you the power to move debris with 450 CFM of air volume at 142 MPH. The product features an active second battery well for an additional battery and extended runtime if needed. The control handle features a battery switch that enables you to select which battery to draw energy from or to lock off the tool for transport or storage. The handle also includes a full variable speed trigger and a speed lock that is activated and deactivated with the push of a button. At only 63 dB(A), the backpack blower is compliant with noise-restricted regions and ideal for working on noise-sensitive properties.

Overview of the Dewalt DCBL590X1

The Dewalt DCBL590X1 in use

The Dewalt DCBL590X1

  • Power: The Dewalt DCBL590X1 can force 450 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) from its nozzle at a maximum speed of 142 MPH.
  • 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: Its 7.5 Ah 40 V Li-ion battery (1 DCB407 battery included) means that a user can operate the DCBL590X1 for an estimated 20 minutes on a full charge.
  • Handling: By design, this model isn’t the smallest leaf blower on the market. It’s meant to be carried as a backpack so that the bulk of the unit is out of the way and the user’s hands are free to manipulate the nozzle. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free.
  • Speed Settings: With its variable speed settings, the Dewalt DCBL590X1 allows you to precisely control its air output. In addition, the blower is also equipped with cruise control, with which the user can easily maintain the selected settings.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 63 dB, the DCBL590X1 is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric backpack category.

The Dewalt DCBL590X1's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Dewalt DCBL590X1 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Its max air speed of 142 MPH places it at the approximate midpoint in comparison to other battery-operated backpack blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Ryobi RY404170 and its 165 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • Its max air volume rating (450 cubic feet per minute) means it is really not the biggest air producer of cordless backpack blowers. For the highest air volume, you may want to have a look at the Worx WG572, which boasts with 800 CFM.
  • Autonomy-wise, with up to 20 minutes of autonomy on a full charge, the DCBL590X1 is on the low end when compared with other cordless backpack units. To enjoy the best possible autonomy in this category, you could have a look at the Worx WG572 which offers up to 230 minutes of runtime.

The bottom line

  • Brushless motor
  • Cruise control
AVERAGE SPECS:
  • Acceptable noise (63 dB)
