Overview of the Kobalt KHB 2580-06

The Kobalt KHB 2580-06 in use

The Kobalt KHB 2580-06

  • Power: The Kobalt KHB 2580-06 can force 630 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) from its nozzle at a maximum speed of 140 MPH.
  • Power delivery: Kobalt designed this unit and its brushless, battery-operated motor with top-of-the-food-chain maneuverability in mind. The KHB 2580-06 doesn’t need to be plugged in, so you can take it anywhere easily.
  • Battery: Its 2.5 Ah 80 V Li-ion battery (1 KB 2580C-06 battery included) offers a maximum autonomy of 75 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 8.9 lbs — the Kobalt KHB 2580-06 is neither the lightest nor the heaviest cordless handheld blower on the market.
  • Speed Settings: To provide more control over their job to the user, the unit has a variable speed control setting. No matter the size of the job, the user can adjust the airflow of the Kobalt KHB 2580-06 to match it. On top of that, maintaining the selected speed is effortless, as it also features cruise control.

The Kobalt KHB 2580-06's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Kobalt KHB 2580-06 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Forced air leaving this blower’s nozzle has been clocked at 140 MPH. That makes the KHB 2580-06 average in terms of air speed for battery-operated handheld blowers. 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.
  • The KHB 2580-06 is powerful, with an airflow rating of 630 CFM (cubic feet per minute). This is certainly on the high end compared to other cordless handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the EGO LB7654, with 765 CFM, could be in your good books.
  • The longevity of this model’s battery is notably higher than most cordless handheld units. It offers an autonomy of up to 75 minutes. If autonomy is an important factor for you, the Toro 51822 can run for up to 140 minutes and could be worth considering.
