The SKIL BL4713C-11 in use

The SKIL BL4713C-11

  • Power: The SKIL BL4713C-11 is a cordless blower with a maximum air volume rating of 530 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed of 140 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 SKIL BL4713C-11 is powered by an easy-to-recharge 2.5 Ah 40 V Li-ion battery (1 BY8705-00 battery included).
  • Handling: Being handheld, this blower has a good maneuverability and is meant to be easier to carry around over a small period of time. All told (including the battery), it weighs 8.9 lbs — the SKIL BL4713C-11 is neither the lightest nor the heaviest cordless handheld blower on the market.
  • Speed Settings: There are times when you only need a little more power, while other times you will want a bit more precision when clearing leaves and debris.

The SKIL BL4713C-11's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the SKIL BL4713C-11 compare with handheld leaf blowers of similar voltage (between 36 and 48V).

  • Forced air leaving this blower’s nozzle has been clocked at 140 MPH. That makes the BL4713C-11 average in terms of air speed for battery-operated handheld blowers between 36 and 48V. 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 SKIL BL4713C-11 boasts an impressive airflow that can reach 530 CFM (Cubic Foot per Minute). This places it amongst the most powerful 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.
