This blower uses the same batteries as some of my drills. I got the 12v drills before I got the 18v stuff, and they still get used every day. Since I already had the batteries I thought the blower was a no brainer.
It’s definitely not suited for too much outdoor work, but that’s not why I got it. I bought this smaller compact blower to keep in the workshop to blow away sawdust and shavings. It’s perfect for that job and I feel it works far better than an air compressor.
