Overview of the Milwaukee 3009-24HD

The Milwaukee 3009-24HD in use

The Milwaukee 3009-24HD

  • Power: The Milwaukee 3009-24HD can force 650 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) from its nozzle at a maximum speed of 155 MPH.
  • Power delivery: This blower has a brushless, battery-operated motor. Thus, the user won’t have to worry about tripping over pesky cords when they’re busy working their lawn.
  • Battery: The Milwaukee 3009-24HD is powered by a minimum of two 18V Li-ion batteries, yielding a total of 36V. Since the unit comes with four 12 Ah batteries, you can decide to run it on either 2 or 4 of them, which allows you to adjust the configuration for either lighter weight in quicker clean ups or more runtime in extended clearing applications. When the 4 included batteries are used, power from the additional 2 batteries is used to extend the 3009-24HD's autonomy, providing up to 60 minutes of runtime.
  • 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. However, for an electric backpack blower, the Milwaukee 3009-24HD is heavier than most, weighing 32.1 lbs (with the 4 included batteries).
  • 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 Milwaukee 3009-24HD to match it. On top of that, maintaining the selected speed is effortless, as it also features cruise control.
  • Additional power control modes: In addition to the variable speed trigger, the unit provides even more control over power and battery life, by allowing the user to choose between 3 different power modes.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 62 dB can be considered the standard for similar electric backpack blowers.

The Milwaukee 3009-24HD's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Milwaukee 3009-24HD compare with other cordless backpack leaf blowers.

  • Forced air leaving this blower’s nozzle has been clocked at 155 MPH. That makes the 3009-24HD 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.
  • The 3009-24HD is average in terms of air volume. It's rated at 650 CFM, which is common for cordless backpack blowers with a comparable voltage. If air volume is important to you, the EGO LBPX8004-2, with 800 CFM, could be in your good books.
  • Users can expect a maximum autonomy of 60 minutes from its battery, which means the 3009-24HD won't run as long as many other cordless backpack units before needing to be plugged in. To enjoy the best possible autonomy in this category, you could have a look at the Makita CBU02Z which offers up to 240 minutes of runtime.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other cordless backpack blowers, the Milwaukee 3009-24HD is on the expensive side of the price range.

While certainly not the cheapest of its kind, purchasing it could most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.
