Overview of the Snapper XD PowerGrip
- Power: The XD PowerGrip is a cordless blower made by Snapper. It has a maximum air speed of 140 MPH and its nozzle can expel a max air volume of 700 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
- Power delivery: If you don’t like dealing with cords, you will be delighted to know that this blower is equipped with a brushless, battery-operated motor.
- Battery: The blower comes with a 4 Ah 82 V Li-ion battery which, unlike any other battery of similar cordless units, does not get inserted directly into the tool. Instead, a battery harness is included. This harness allows you to wear the battery around your waist, which reduces arm and back fatigue and as a result, makes it easier to work longer.
- Handling: The unit is handheld but features Snapper's PowerGrip. PowerGrip enhances comfort of use and provides a more ergonomic grip, with a tube-mounted handle and an arm-support strap. Just like that, PowerGrip makes the blower's 9.1 lbs feel even lighter than they already would have.
- Speed Settings: For those who wish to have complete control while operating their leaf blower, the XD PowerGrip offers variable speed settings, and moreover, is also equipped with cruise control, which allows the user to comfortably continue blowing at their preferred setting.
- 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 XD PowerGrip's performance versus other blowers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Snapper XD PowerGrip compare with similar leaf blowers.
- Forced air leaving this blower’s nozzle has been clocked at 140 MPH. That makes the XD PowerGrip average in terms of air speed 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.
- The XD PowerGrip is powerful, with an airflow rating of 700 CFM (cubic feet per minute). This is certainly on the high end compared to other cordless handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the EGO LB7654, with 765 CFM, could be in your good books.
- Thanks to its autonomy of up to 60 mins, the XD PowerGrip benefits from a higher run time than many cordless handheld units. If autonomy is an important factor for you, the Toro 51822 can run for up to 140 minutes and could be worth considering.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other cordless blowers, the Snapper XD PowerGrip is on the average side of the price range.
Therefore, this blower nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of product.
