Greenworks Pro 60V 610 CFM Blower Review

Greenworks Pro Huffs and Puffs and Blows at 610 CFM Here in Florida, at least, things have already started to heat back up. This means that now, and even more so in the coming months, there won’t be any shortage of required lawn work. That being the case, we find it fortuitous to have Greenworks’ […]

Toro 60V 51820 blowing leaves

Toro Battery Blower Review | 60V Brushless

We’ve tested a lot of outdoor power tools—including dozens of cordless blowers. The Toro battery blower (model 51820) is one of the strongest models we’ve ever tested.

EGO 575 CFM Blower

EGO 575 CFM Blower: Class Leading Power

Kobalt 80V Blower Review

Editor’s Note: This blower has been discontinued. This review originally published in October 2017. Kobalt and Greenworks made waves this year in OPE when they unveiled their 80V lineups.
