The SKIL BL4713-10's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the SKIL BL4713-10 compare with handheld leaf blowers of similar voltage (between 36 and 48V).

  • Air exiting this blower's nozzle can reach speeds of 193 MPH, marking it as considerably swifter than most 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.
  • Regarding its air volume, the airflow of the SKIL BL4713-10 can reach 500 CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute), which is on par with other cordless handheld blowers with a comparable voltage. If air volume is important to you, the Husqvarna 350iB, with 800 CFM, could be in your good books.
  • Within the voltage range of 36V to 48V, the BL4713-10 falls within the typical autonomy range for cordless handheld units, delivering up to 50 minutes of operation on a full charge. If autonomy is an important factor for you, the Makita CBU01Z can run for up to 300 minutes and could be worth considering.

    This blower will only run for about 8 minutes on a fully charged battery at high speed. Why would you ever run a blower at anything other than high. Plenty of power but just doesn’t run long enough.

    + PROS: Plenty of power
    - CONS: Battery doesn't last long enough.
