  • 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: With its 2 Ah 82 V Li-ion battery, the Snapper XD 1687879 has a standard, full-charge run time of up to 40 minutes.
  • Handling: Being handheld, this blower has a good maneuverability and is meant to be easier to carry around over a small period of time. However, for a cordless handheld blower, the Snapper XD 1687879 is heavier than most, weighing 12.8 lbs.

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 similar leaf blowers.

  • 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. 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 Snapper XD 1687879 boasts an impressive airflow that can reach 550 CFM (Cubic Foot per Minute). This places it amongst the most powerful cordless handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Ryobi RY404100, with 730 CFM, could be in your good books.
  • The XD 1687879 is within the average range for cordless handheld units, offering up to 40 minutes of running time when fully charged. If autonomy is an important factor for you, the EGO POWER+ LBX6000 can run for up to 96 minutes and could be worth considering.
