The Greenworks BL40B411's performance versus other blowers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Greenworks BL40B411 compare with handheld leaf blowers of similar voltage (between 36 and 48V).
- The air speed of the Greenworks BL40B411 maxes out at 120 MPH. While more than adequate for many jobs, its air speed is below average among other battery-operated handheld blowers between 36 and 48V. For the fastest air speed in this category, you may want to consider the Makita XBU01PT, which can expell air at a velocity that can reach 208 MPH.
- It has a maximum air volume output of 450 CFM (cubic feet per minute). With this output rating, the BL40B411 is well within average in relation to similar cordless handheld blowers with a comparable voltage. If air volume is important to you, the Husqvarna 350iB, with 800 CFM, could be in your good books.
- Autonomy-wise, with up to 30 minutes of autonomy on a full charge, the BL40B411 is on the low end when compared with other cordless handheld units of similar voltage. To enjoy the best possible autonomy in this category, you could have a look at the Makita CBU01Z which offers up to 300 minutes of runtime.
