Description

Overview of the Kobalt KBB 7580-06

  • Power: The Kobalt KBB 7580-06 is a cordless blower with a maximum air volume rating of 776 CFM and an air speed of 154 MPH.
  • Power delivery: With its brushless motor, the Kobalt KBB 7580-06 delivers cordless functionality, allowing users to maneuver freely and efficiently during lawn care routines.
  • Battery: The unit features two 80V battery ports (no battery is included with the unit), which allows it to run on either one or two batteries, extending its runtime. All Kobalt 80V batteries are compatible with the KBB 7580-06. The maximum expected runtime will therefore depend on the capacity of the inserted batteries.
  • Handling: By design, this model isn’t the smallest leaf blower on the market. It’s meant to be carried as a backpack so that the bulk of the unit is out of the way and the user’s hands are free to manipulate the nozzle. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. Be aware that, at 16.64 lbs without any battery, the Kobalt KBB 7580-06 may be perceived as heavier among electric backpack blowers.
  • 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 7580-06 to match it. On top of that, maintaining the selected speed is effortless, as it also features cruise control.

The Kobalt KBB 7580-06's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Kobalt KBB 7580-06 compare with other cordless backpack leaf blowers.

  • Forced air leaving this blower’s nozzle has been clocked at 154 MPH. That makes the KBB 7580-06 average in terms of air speed for battery-operated backpack blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Echo DPB-5800T and its 195 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • For those prioritizing air volume, the Kobalt's KBB 7580-06 delivers with a maximum airflow of 776 CFM (cubic feet per minute), surpassing most cordless backpack blowers. If air volume is important to you, the EGO LBPX8004-2, with 800 CFM, could be in your good books.
