  • Forced air exiting this blower has been clocked at a max speed of 160 MPH. This puts the RY404140 ahead of the pack as far as air speed is concerned in battery-operated handheld blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Makita XBU01PT and its 208 MPH could be an option to consider.
