The Snapper XD 1687879's performance versus other blowers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Snapper XD 1687879 compare with handheld leaf blowers of similar voltage (between 60 and 100V).
- Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 130 MPH, which is pretty much what is to be expected for battery-operated handheld blowers between 60 and 100V. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Dewalt DCBL770X1 and its 175 MPH could be an option to consider.
- It’s capable of expelling a maximum air volume of 550 CFM (cubic feet per minute). This places it at the low end compared to other cordless handheld blowers with a comparable voltage. For the highest air volume, you may want to have a look at the CAT DG651, which boasts with 800 CFM.
- Users can expect a maximum autonomy of 40 minutes from its battery, which means the XD 1687879 won't run as long as many other cordless handheld units before needing to be plugged in. To enjoy the best possible autonomy in this category, you could have a look at the Toro 51822 which offers up to 140 minutes of runtime.
