The RB36DLP4 36V Cordless Blower (tool body only) is not only environmentally friendly and emission-free, but it is also quiet compared to traditional blowers. Available as tool body only, it is compatible with Hitachi's 36V Lithium Ion slide-type battery platform (sold separately). It provides value in removing the cost of traditional fuel, while simultaneously reducing the carbon footprint through the use of Lithium Ion battery technology. This cordless blower can reach a max air velocity of 118 mph to blow leaves and debris out of the way with ease. (source: Hitachi)

Overview of the Hitachi RB36DLP4

  • Power: This leaf blower has a maximum air volume rating of 470 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed rating of 118 MPH.
  • Power delivery: As it is battery-operated, it doesn't need to be plugged in and therefore allows superb freedom of movement.
  • Battery: The Hitachi RB36DLP4 is powered by an easy-to-recharge 2 Ah 36 V Li-ion battery (battery not included).
  • Handling: It’s handheld, so naturally it’s easier to handle and carry than larger leaf blowers, such as backpack models or walk-behinds. Be aware that, at 8.4 lbs, the Hitachi RB36DLP4 is on the heavier side for cordless handheld blowers.
  • Speed Settings: Hitachi designed the RB36DLP4 with control and precision in mind. That’s why this model has 4 speed settings, meaning that its air output can be adjusted to suit the user’s needs.

The Hitachi RB36DLP4's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Hitachi RB36DLP4 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 118 MPH, which is pretty much what is to be expected for battery-operated handheld blowers (the one expelling air at the fastest speed being the Makita XBU01PT with 208 MPH).
  • If air volume is an important feature, the RB36DLP4 by Hitachi will not disappoint. Its airflow maxes out at 470 CFM (cubic feet per minute), which is more powerful than most cordless handheld leaf blowers (the biggest expelled air volume belonging to the Poulan Pro PRB675i with 675 CFM).

The bottom line

  • High CFM (470 CFM)
  • Decent MPH (118 MPH)
  • Quite heavy (8.4 lbs)
