Description

Overview of the Kobalt KHB 3040-06

The Kobalt KHB 3040-06 in use

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 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: Its 3 Ah 40 V Li-ion battery (1 battery included) means that a user can operate the KHB 3040-06 for an estimated 20 minutes on a full charge.
  • 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. All told (including the battery), it weighs 7.5 lbs — the Kobalt KHB 3040-06 is neither the lightest nor the heaviest cordless handheld blower on the market.
  • Speed Settings: There are times when you only need a little more power, while other times you will want a bit more precision when clearing leaves and debris. For this purpose, the KHB 3040-06 offers variable speed settings, adding you, the user, more control, and a cruise control mode, which will allow you to maintain it comfortably for as long as you wish.

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.

  • The air speed of the Kobalt KHB 3040-06 maxes out at 110 MPH. While more than adequate for many jobs, its air speed is below average among other battery-operated handheld blowers. 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. If air volume is important to you, the EGO LB7654, with 765 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. To enjoy the best possible autonomy in this category, you could have a look at the Toro 51822 which offers up to 140 minutes of runtime.

Price comparison

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.
