The Kobalt KHB 3040-06

  • Power: The KHB 3040-06 is a cordless blower made by Kobalt. It has a maximum air speed of 110 MPH and its nozzle can expel a max air volume of 480 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • Power delivery: The KHB 3040-06 is a battery-operated unit, so it doesn’t need to be plugged in during use. Users will enjoy the added mobility of its cordless design.
  • Battery: Its 3 Ah 40 V Li-ion battery (1 battery included) enables the blower to run for up to 20 minutes without needing to recharge.
  • Handling: With its handheld design, this leaf blower was created with portability in mind. Most users will have no problem using it almost anywhere. At 7.5 lbs (battery included), the Kobalt KHB 3040-06 is within the average weight range of cordless handheld blowers.

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 handheld leaf blowers of similar voltage (between 36 and 48V).

  • Maxing out at 110 MPH at full power, this blower is on the lower end in terms of air speed for 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 480 CFM (cubic feet per minute). With this output rating, the KHB 3040-06 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 20 minutes of autonomy on a full charge, the KHB 3040-06 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.

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

    Replacement parts are hard to locate on my Kobalt leaf blower. The battery clip broke on my Kobalt leaf blower model# 3040-60. Where do I go to obtain a replacement battery clip holder?

    + PROS: Good price and battery life is acceptable during a normal work day around the home yard.
    - CONS: Replacement parts appears to be very limited.
