Description

The all-new Weed Eater WE12B electric leaf blower is compact, super-lightweight, easy to start, and easy to use, with simple, intuitive controls. With a 12 amp motor, it's perfect for clean-up of medium- to larger-sized yards, plus driveways, sidewalks, porches, and decks. With 360 CFM of blowing force and 200 MPH air speed, there's plenty of power to blow away grass, leaves, and other stubborn debris. It powers up instantly with the simple press of a button, with no pull cords, gas, oil, or fumes; and it's vacuum-capable, should you choose to remove debris rather than blowing it into a pile or out of sight. Plus, it has a nifty built-in cord retainer for simple, hassle-free storage.

  • Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 200 MPH, which is rather impressive for an electric handheld blower. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Craftsman CMEBL7000 and its 260 MPH could be an option to consider.

About Weed Eater

Weed Eater is a notorious power tool company with a complicated history, most well known for its green string trimmers. The company was founded in Texas, US, back in 1971 and over the years, exchanged owners several times, notably Emerson Electric, who merged them with Poulan, and Electrolux, who transferred the outdoor division under Husqvarna AB. However, green Weed Eater products can be found to this day in North America, including a strong line of mostly electric leaf blowers. Their products are unmistakable, as they feature a unique, green, alien-like design.

Warranty Information

The Weed Eater WE12B is covered under a warranty for up to 2 years. This warranty may not cover all parts of the blower.
