- Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 136 MPH, which is pretty much what is to be expected for battery-operated handheld blowers between 36 and 48V. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Makita XBU01PT and its 208 MPH could be an option to consider.
