Overview of the Milwaukee 2724-21HD
- Power: The Milwaukee 2724-21HD can force 450 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) from its nozzle at a maximum speed of 120 MPH.
- Power delivery: Milwaukee designed this unit and its brushless, battery-operated motor with top-of-the-food-chain maneuverability in mind. The 2724-21HD doesn’t need to be plugged in, so you can take it anywhere easily.
- Battery: It has a 8 Ah 18 V Li-ion battery (1 RED LITHIUM XC8.0 battery combo included) that should work reliably for up to 15 minutes if completely charged.
- Handling: Being handheld, this blower has a good maneuverability and is meant to be easier to carry around over a small period of time. All told (including the battery), it weighs 7.3 lbs — the Milwaukee 2724-21HD is neither the lightest nor the heaviest cordless handheld blower on the market.
- Speed Settings: Sometimes you just need a little more power, while other times you may want a little more precision when moving leaves and debris. That’s why the 2724-21HD features variable speed settings for added control.
- Noise: With a decibel rating of 62 dB, the 2724-21HD is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric handheld category.
The Milwaukee 2724-21HD's performance versus other blowers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Milwaukee 2724-21HD compare with handheld leaf blowers of similar voltage (between 18 and 24V).
- It can push air from the nozzle at 120 MPH, which puts it ahead of its class in terms of air speed for battery-operated handheld blowers between 18 and 24V. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Makita XBU07SM1 and its 143 MPH could be an option to consider.
- Regarding its air volume, the Milwaukee 2724-21HD boasts an impressive airflow that can reach 450 CFM (Cubic Foot per Minute). This places it amongst the most powerful cordless handheld blowers with a comparable voltage. If air volume is important to you, the RIDGID R01601K, with 510 CFM, could be in your good books.
- Autonomy-wise, with up to 15 minutes of autonomy on a full charge, the 2724-21HD 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 Ryobi PBLLB01K which offers up to 60 minutes of runtime.
As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other cordless blowers, the Milwaukee 2724-21HD is on the average side of the price range.
Therefore, this blower nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of product.
