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.
