Description

Overview of the Greenworks 2418502

  • Power: The Greenworks 2418502 can force 550 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) from its nozzle at a maximum speed of 155 MPH.
  • Power delivery: Greenworks designed this unit and its brushless, battery-operated motor with top-of-the-food-chain maneuverability in mind. The 2418502 doesn’t need to be plugged in, so you can take it anywhere easily.
  • Battery: Its 5 Ah 60 V Li-ion battery (1 2949102 battery included) means that a user can operate the 2418502 for an estimated 50 minutes on a full charge.
  • Handling: This backpack leaf blower offers ergonomic advantages, distributing weight for comfortable operation over extended periods and freeing the user's hands for efficient maneuvering. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. Among other electric backpack blowers, the Greenworks 2418502 can be considered light, weighing only 14.4 lbs, battery included.
  • Speed Settings: The Greenworks 2418502 offers customizable airflow through its variable speed settings, along with integrated cruise control for convenient operation.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 86 dB can be considered the standard for similar electric backpack blowers.

The Greenworks 2418502's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Greenworks 2418502 compare with other cordless backpack leaf blowers.

  • Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 155 MPH, which is within the expected range for battery-operated backpack blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Echo DPB-5800T and its 195 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • Its max air volume rating (550 cubic feet per minute) means it is really not the biggest air producer of cordless backpack blowers with a comparable voltage. For the highest air volume, you may want to have a look at the EGO LBPX8004-2, which boasts with 800 CFM.
  • Its battery provides a maximum autonomy of 50 minutes, placing the 2418502 on the lower end in terms of runtime among its cordless counterparts. To enjoy the best possible autonomy in this category, you could have a look at the Makita CBU02Z which offers up to 240 minutes of runtime.
