DeWalt FlexVolt Blower

DeWalt FlexVolt 60V Blower Review

Lithium-Ion blowers are the category that every commercial lawn care Pro loves to hate. No matter what the marketing claims, cordless blowers just don’t push the kind of power that Pros need.

Milwaukee M18 Fuel Blower Video Review

Milwaukee M18 Fuel Blower Video Review

The Milwaukee M18 Fuel Blower isn’t going to blow you away with its 450 CFM and 100 MPH performance if you’re a landscaping or lawn care Pro.
