Overview of the Hitachi RB18DSLP4

  • Power: The Hitachi RB18DSLP4 can force 78 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) from its nozzle at a maximum speed of 78 MPH.
  • Power delivery: The blower is cordless, so the operator won’t need to worry about getting tripped up by pesky cords when they’re busy getting work done.
  • Battery: It has a 3 Ah 18 V Li-ion battery (battery not included) that can work reliably for up to 20 minutes if completely charged.
  • Handling: For those who are looking for a portable and convenient leaf blower, this model is a strong candidate. It’s designed for easy handling and use, and its size means it’s easily carried and stored. When compared to other electric handheld leaf blowers, the Hitachi RB18DSLP4 stands out due to its lower weight: just 3.5 lbs.
  • Speed Settings: Thanks to its variable speed settings, the Hitachi RB18DSLP4 allows precise control of the air output.

The Hitachi RB18DSLP4's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Hitachi RB18DSLP4 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Maxing out at 78 MPH at full power, this blower is on the lower end in terms of air speed for electric handheld leaf blowers (the one expelling air at the fastest speed being the Worx WG518 with 250 MPH).
  • As this unit is rated at 78 CFM (cubic feet per minute), it is less powerful than most electric handheld leaf blowers (the biggest expelled air volume belonging to the Toro PowerJet™ F700 51624 with 725 CFM).
  • Users can expect an autonomy of 20 minutes from its battery, which means the RB18DSLP4 won't run as long as many other cordless handheld leaf blowers before needing to be plugged in (the one with the best autonomy being the EGO POWER+ 580 CFM LB5804 with up to 180 minutes of runtime).

The bottom line

STRENGTHS:
  • Lightweight (3.5 lbs)
WEAKNESSES:
  • Low CFM (78 CFM)
  • Low MPH (78 MPH)
  • Low Autonomy (20 mins)
