Overview of the Snapper HD 1687968

The Snapper HD 1687968 in use

The Snapper HD 1687968

  • Power: The HD 1687968 is a cordless blower made by Snapper. It has a maximum air speed of 120 MPH and its nozzle can expel a max air volume of 450 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • Power delivery: As it is battery-operated, it doesn't need to be plugged in and therefore allows superb freedom of movement.
  • Battery: Its 2 Ah 48 V Li-ion battery (1 battery included) means that a user can operate the HD 1687968 for an estimated 20 minutes on a full charge.
  • Handling: With its handheld design, this leaf blower was created with portability in mind. Most users will have no problem using it almost anywhere. However, for a cordless handheld blower, the Snapper HD 1687968 is heavier than most, weighing 8.8 lbs.
  • Speed Settings: With its variable speed settings, the Snapper HD 1687968 allows you to precisely control its air output. In addition, the blower is also equipped with cruise control, with which the user can easily maintain the selected settings.
  • Noise: Note that this blower is somewhat on the noisy end of electric handheld blowers, as its engine can reach an operating noise level of around 96 dB.

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.

  • Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 120 MPH, which is pretty much what is to be expected for 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 Ryobi RY404100, with 730 CFM, could be in your good books.
  • Autonomy-wise, with up to 20 minutes of autonomy on a full charge, the HD 1687968 is on the low end when compared with other cordless handheld units. To enjoy the best possible autonomy in this category, you could have a look at the EGO POWER+ LBX6000 which offers up to 96 minutes of runtime.
