The Milwaukee M18 FUEL™ Dual Battery

  • Power: This cordless leaf blower has a maximum air volume rating of 600 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed rating 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: The Milwaukee M18 FUEL™ Dual Battery is powered by two 18V Li-ion batteries (RED LITHIUM batteries not included), yielding a total of 36V and is optimized to be used with Milwaukee's HIGH OUTPUT™ batteries. Both batteries are required for operation.

  • Forced air exiting this blower has been clocked at a max speed of 145 MPH. This puts the M18 FUEL™ Dual Battery ahead of the pack as far as air speed is concerned in battery-operated handheld blowers.
