Overview of the RIDGID R8604301B

  • Power: The RIDGID R8604301B can force 280 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) from its nozzle at a maximum speed of 105 MPH.
  • Power delivery: The blower is battery-operated, so the operator won’t need to worry about getting tripped up by pesky cords when they’re busy getting work done.
  • Battery: It has a 4 Ah 18 V Li-ion battery (battery not included) that can work reliably for up to 20 minutes if completely charged.
  • Handling: It’s handheld, so naturally it’s easier to handle and carry than larger leaf blowers, such as backpack models or walk-behinds. When compared to other cordless handheld blowers, the RIDGID R8604301B stands out due to its lower weight: just 5 lbs.
  • Speed Settings: In order to afford more control to the user, this unit has a variable speed control. No matter the size of the job, the user can adjust the airflow of the RIDGID R8604301B to match.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 94.5 dB, the R8604301B is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric handheld category.
