Overview of 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: Dewalt designed this cordless unit with total mobility in mind. The DCBL590X1 only needs to be plugged in when it is charging, so users can take it almost anywhere.
- Battery: With its 7.5 Ah 40 V Li-ion battery, the Dewalt DCBL590X1 has a standard, full-charge run time of up to 40 minutes.
- 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. However, for a electric backpack blower, the Dewalt DCBL590X1 is heavier than most, weighing 22.8 lbs.
- 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 DCBL590X1 features variable speed settings for added control.
- Noise: With a noise rating of 63 dB, this blower can be considered the standard for similar electric backpack blowers.
