Description

Overview of the Kobalt KHB 3040-06

The Kobalt KHB 3040-06 in use

The Kobalt KHB 3040-06

  • Power: The Kobalt KHB 3040-06 can force 480 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) from its nozzle at a maximum speed of 110 MPH.
  • Power delivery: The blower is battery-operated, 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 40 V Li-ion battery (1 battery included) that can work reliably for up to 20 minutes if completely charged.
  • Handling: Being handheld, this blower has a good maneuverability and is meant to be easier to carry around over a small period of time. However, for a cordless handheld blower, the Kobalt KHB 3040-06 is heavier than most, weighing 7.5 lbs.
  • Speed Settings: With its variable speed settings, the Kobalt KHB 3040-06 allows you to precisely control its air output. In addition, the blower is also equipped with cruise control, with which the user can easily maintain the selected settings.

The Kobalt KHB 3040-06's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Kobalt KHB 3040-06 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Air expelled from the nozzle of this blower can reach 110 MPH. When compared to others of this type, the KHB 3040-06 has a lower air speed than most battery-operated handheld blowers (the one expelling air at the fastest speed being the Makita XBU01PT with 208 MPH).
  • The KHB 3040-06 is powerful, with an airflow rating of 480 CFM (cubic feet per minute). This is certainly on the high end compared to other cordless handheld blowers (the biggest expelled air volume belonging to the Poulan Pro PRB675i with 675 CFM).
  • Users can expect an autonomy of 20 minutes from its battery, which means the KHB 3040-06 won't run as long as many other cordless handheld units before needing to be plugged in (the one with the best autonomy being the EGO POWER+ LBX6000 with up to 96 minutes of runtime).

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other cordless blowers, the Kobalt KHB 3040-06 is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget blower.
