Overview of the SKIL BL4714B-10

The SKIL BL4714B-10 in use

The SKIL BL4714B-10

  • Power: This cordless leaf blower has a maximum air volume rating of 400 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed rating of 100 MPH.
  • Power delivery: SKIL designed this unit and its brushless, battery-operated motor with top-of-the-food-chain maneuverability in mind. The BL4714B-10 doesn’t need to be plugged in, so you can take it anywhere easily.
  • Battery: The SKIL BL4714B-10 is powered by an easy-to-recharge 4 Ah 20 V Li-ion battery (1 BY519601 battery included).
  • 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 SKIL BL4714B-10 stands out due to its lower weight: just 6.1 lbs battery included.
  • Speed Settings: SKIL designed the BL4714B-10 with control and precision in mind. That’s why this model has 6 speed settings, meaning that its air output can be adjusted to suit the user’s needs.
