Description

Overview of the Kobalt KBB 600A-06

The Kobalt KBB 600A-06 in use

The Kobalt KBB 600A-06

  • Power: The Kobalt KBB 600A-06 can force 580 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) from its nozzle at a maximum speed of 145 MPH.
  • Power delivery: If you don’t like dealing with cords, you will be delighted to know that this blower is equipped with a brushless, battery-operated motor.
  • Battery: Its 2 Ah 80 V Li-ion battery (1 KB 280-06 battery included) enables the blower to run for up to 30 minutes without needing to recharge.
  • Handling: As this unit is a backpack leaf blower, the majority of the unit is distributed so that the user can operate it with ease for most reasonable periods of use. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. Among other electric backpack blowers, the Kobalt KBB 600A-06 can be considered light, weighing only 11.1 lbs, battery included.
  • 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 KBB 600A-06 to match it. On top of that, maintaining the selected speed is effortless, as it also features cruise control.

The Kobalt KBB 600A-06's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Kobalt KBB 600A-06 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 145 MPH, which is pretty much what is to be expected for battery-operated backpack blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Ryobi RY404170 and its 165 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • The KBB 600A-06 is average in terms of air volume. It's rated at 580 CFM, which is common for cordless backpack blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Worx WG572, with 800 CFM, could be in your good books.
  • Autonomy-wise, with up to 30 minutes of autonomy on a full charge, the KBB 600A-06 is on the low end when compared with other cordless backpack units. To enjoy the best possible autonomy in this category, you could have a look at the Worx WG572 which offers up to 230 minutes of runtime.

  • Cruise control
