The Snapper HD 1687968's performance versus other blowers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Snapper HD 1687968 compare with similar leaf blowers.
- Its max air speed of 120 MPH places it at the approximate midpoint in comparison to other 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.
- It has a maximum air volume output of 450 CFM (cubic feet per minute). With this output rating, the HD 1687968 is well within average in relation to similar cordless handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the EGO LB7654, with 765 CFM, could be in your good books.
