    It’s powerful enough. The fully charged battery lasts approximately 5 minutes when I am attempting to remove leaves from the driveway. I would not recommend this due to that issue. I cannot clear my driveway without having to charge the battery again. Takes me hours to finish the job.

    + PROS: It's powerful enough.
    - CONS: The fully charged battery lasts approximately 5 minutes when I am attempting to remove leaves from the driveway. I would not recommend this due to that issue. I cannot clear my driveway without having to charge the battery again. Takes me hours to finish the job.

You can compare as many blowers as you wish. However, for the best results, we recommend you to compare only 2 blowers at a time.
