The EGO POWER+ LB4800's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the EGO POWER+ LB4800 compare with handheld leaf blowers of similar voltage (between 56 and 60V).

  • Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 92 MPH, which is on the lower end for battery-operated handheld blowers between 56 and 60V. For the fastest air speed in this category, you may want to consider the EGO LB7654, which can expell air at a velocity that can reach 200 MPH.
  • As this unit is rated at 480 CFM (cubic feet per minute), it expells less air than most cordless handheld blowers with a comparable voltage. For the highest air volume, you may want to have a look at the CAT DG651, which boasts with 800 CFM.
  • Users can expect a maximum autonomy of 60 minutes from its battery, which means the POWER+ LB4800 won't run as long as many other cordless handheld units before needing to be plugged in. To enjoy the best possible autonomy in this category, you could have a look at the Toro 51822 which offers up to 140 minutes of runtime.

Price comparison

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget blower.

POWER+ Battery Technology

EGO's POWER+ technology is based on a high-end patented ARC Lithium™ design which utilizes a third row of cells to achieve high-voltage performance. Combined with a revolutionary phase-change material which envelopes each cell, the arc-design of the cell's arrangement allows for more efficient cooling and an optimum power distribution across all rows of cells. This technology also embeds a patented power management system that monitors and optimizes each individual battery cell to maximize its power, performance, and runtime. Moreover, the battery casing is completely sealed and has an enhanced shock and weather resistivity. Thus, the battery is protected from drops, rain and the elements.

    Easy to handle, well balanced, at lowest speed I can get over an hour from the battery. I have a spare battery that extends use when the leaves require more air velocity. It is very quiet and has a soft-start to limit inrush current. I also have an Ego LB4800 that is now 6-1/2 years old with the original battery. I Never had any problems with either one.

    + PROS: Easy to handle, well balanced, at lowest speed I can get over an hour from the battery.
    - CONS: The price of the battery is high. I also wish it had an attachment for the blower tube bottom that directs air horizonally to get under the leaves better.
