Description

The X12 is vastly more powerful than any handheld or backpack blower—and much easier to use! (source: DR)

Overview of the DR X12

The DR X12 in use

The DR X12

  • Power: The X12, built by DR, is a gas-powered leaf blower capable of expelling a maximum air volume of 1200 cubic feet per minute (CFM). Its air speed is rated at 200 MPH.
  • Handling: Walk-behind blowers such as the DR X12 are the most powerful. They are wheeled, heavy, have to be pushed and are mostly used by professionals. The unit features two 16" never-flat wheels at the back, as a well as a front wheel that unfortunately does not swivel.
  • Engine: The unit is powered by a 223cc DR OHV engine. As this is a 4-stroke engine, the blower does not require a mix of gas and oil in order to run.
  • Speed Settings: In order to afford more control to the user, this unit has a variable speed control. No matter the size of the job, the user can adjust the airflow of the DR X12 to match.
  • Adjustable Air Flow: The unit allows the user to fully control the air stream direction. With 35° of vertical nozzle rotation, it is possible to either aim low to dislodge wet or matted materials, or high to blow dry materials farther. In addition to that, airflow can also be laterally adjusted over 180°. The operator can decide to blow to their right, their front, their left, or anywhere in between.
  • Fuel Tank: With a capacity of 121.7 fl. oz., this DR blower is average compared to other gas walk-behind blowers.
