Light and powerful
Very lightweight and powerful battery backpack blower. Very compact. Get about 15mins on full (without using turbo) on a 2AH battery. This blower seems to produce a bit more power when using the 4ah battery when compared to the 2ah battery. Power is similar to the Ego 56V backpack blower (but not as powerful as AEG's 58V backpack blower), but the Victa is more efficient in using the battery for better runtimes. On full power (without using turbo), the Victa will probably give the same runtime on a 4Ah (288wh) battery as the Ego with a 7.5ah (42...0wh) battery. The only downside with the Victa is that the position of the air intake. I often find my loose shirts being pulled causing the intake air flow being restricted. Also, I did notice at times, the motor makes a cluck noise and stops for a few moments. Apart from these, this is an awesome blower. Whether, it is durable or not, only time will tell.

Battery Power On Steroids
Recently released addition to Victa's great 82V range is this cordless backpack blower. Their handheld 82V blower was good but this is much better for only an extra $19 on current pricing. The 750W handheld's specs are 500 CFM & 201 km/h. The 1000W backpack blower is 580 CFM and 234 km/h but the difference in actual operation feels even more. If they measured blowing force (Newton Metres) which some tool review shootouts do, I think the improvement would be most noticed there.
The available specs are better than the latest model Stihl petrol ...powered handheld units (BG 56 & BG86) as well as the base model petrol powered Stihl backpack blower (BR 200). It also rivals the next petrol powered Stihl backpack model up (BR450) in that it has a higher air speed but lower CFM. All of this and several other benefits - no mixing two stroke oil and fuel - no filter replacements - no breathing in exhaust gases - clothes won't smell of burnt two stroke fuel after operation Not the ABSOLUTE best cordless blower available worldwide. That honour is still with Greenwork Commercial's GBB 700 (dual port 82V blower with 690 CFM @ 265 km/h) available in America, but it's definitely the best in Australia.
