I have run into the same issue with regard to runtime. I have test 4 diff batteries ranging from 6-9 ah 60v flex volt batt. They have provide roughly 5-6 min of runtime on batteries that were charged overnight
I too only get 12 minute run time with a 9 ah 20v/60v/120v battery fully charged. Battery has 6 charges on it. The only tool I’ve powered with it is the 600 cfm blower has approx 1hr on it. Battery was purchased new in Oct 2021.
I’m wonder if the 5Lb 15 Amp hr battery could last 18 minutes?
GREAT BLOWER TERRIBLE RUN TIME 12 minutes with DCB609 9ah battery
I sent this request to DeWalt customer service 11.10.20 and I still do not have an answer after (3) additional requests.
I have a DCBL772 blower, a DCB609 battery will only give me about 12 minutes of continuous run time and it takes over 45 min to charge the battery with the DCB118 charger. Is this normal ?
This is the answer I received :
Since the normal operating time of your unit should be 25 to 30 minutes, and it is not working as expected with your blower, we would like you to know that your battery is guaranteed for 3 years if you consider that your tool is in warranty. , please provide the following information:
– Your physical address.
– Your phone number
– Date code of the battery. It starts with “20XX – XX”. It should be engraved on the
– Photo of the receipt where it shows the date of purchase.
I have (4) DCB609 batteries for use with the blower and my DCS577X1 7-1/4 saw. I have tested each battery in the blower and the results are the same, a 12 minute run time for each battery. But DeWalt will not verify that is normal, latest of (4) request was today and they will not provide an answer to my question and verify the DeWalt stated run time of 25-30 minutes of run time is achievable.
I have asked them to preform this test :
Run the DCBL772 blower with DCB609 battery utilizing the Speed Lock Lever set at full power and record the run time until it stops. Please perform this test with (4) different DCB609 batteries and report back the results.
This the answer I have received on 1.17.21:
Unfortunately, we have no information from the engineering team. Your information was provided to them to get back to you on the subject. As mentioned before, battery run time depend on many variables. That is the reason this information is not provided by default.
Based on the fact that DeWalt will not provide test results, my best guess is my test results, 12 minutes of run times with the DCB609 (9ah) are correct.
TERRIBLE run time for a GREAT BLOWER.
The following ratings are based on the 12 min RUN TIME and not the BLOWER.
Runs for about 5 minutes on a brand new battery .
I like the way it is built. It is comfortable, although it is a bit heavy. It does a great job, but just for a few minutes.
