The GreenWorks 24252 Variable Speed Cordless Blower Review

The GreenWorks 24252 Variable Speed Cordless Blower Review

One of the most impressive features of the GreenWorks 24252 Variable Speed Cordless Blower is that on a full charge you can use it for up to thirty minutes. This is certainly big especially if you consider that other products in the same class will deplete the battery in just ten to fifteen minutes.

You will also like the fact that the speed dial is easily accessible to the thumb. This allows you to adjust the speed so that it just blows away the leaves without necessarily blowing away stuff you do not intend to blow away.

This blower does not come with the same power as an electric blower, so it is ideal for light blowing of leaves off hard surfaces.

If you are planning to blow wet leaves stuck onto the grass, you may want to try a more powerful electric blower. If you do not expect it to perform above its capabilities, you will certainly be happy with this product.

Features

Some of the impressive features we found in the GreenWorks 24252 Variable Speed Cordless Blower include the ones listed below.

  • Battery designed to last up to thirty minutes on a single charge
  • Produces wind speeds of up to 150 miles per hour
  • Equipped with speed control
  • Lightweight
  • Designed to be easy to maintain and store away without the drama associated with gas and oil
  • Weighs 8.1 pounds

Pros

  • When compared to tools that use gas, this blower is lightweight and easy to store
  • Starts instantly with an electric switch
  • Runs up to an impressive 30 minutes on a single charge, based on the battery being fully charged
  • Comes with a four-year warranty covering the product and a warranty of two years on the battery
  • You can use it for more tasks above blowing leaves such as drying your car after washing it

Cons

  • The machine only blows 135 cubic feet of air per minute making it a very lightweight machine

Summary

The GreenWorks 24252 Variable Speed Cordless Blower is not a very powerful machine. If you buy it expecting more you may be disappointed. If you want a blower to use for light work, then this is a machine that will work for you.

The most impressive features of this machine are that the battery will last much longer than the batteries of other machines in its class. The speed dial allows you to adjust the power you get so that you do not end up blowing the leaves too far from where you want them to go.

This GreenWorks 24252 Variable Speed Cordless Blower is the product for someone who does not like the mess associated with blowers that use gas and oils.

You will, however, need to appreciate that this is not the machine that will replace your yard leaf blower. Remember that you can use it for more tasks than blowing your leaves such as drying your car after washing it.

Comparison

Now that we have indicated that this is a machine that will only do light work, you may want to check out some other blowers in this class such as the Black + Decker LSW20 Sweeper. The Black + Decker LSW20 comes equipped with a built-in scraper.

The scraper gives it the ability to remove wet leaves that stick to the surface and become difficult to blow. Its two-year warranty is also an indication of the manufacturer’s confidence in the product they have made.

Another alternative to the GreenWorks 24252 Variable Speed Cordless Blower is the Worx WG546 Turbine Cordless Blower/Sweeper. This blower is big on-air production, we are talking 340 CFM.

Its two-speed design allows you the flexibility to do different jobs. It can also be operated using just one hand with great ease. You can also assemble it without the use of any tools.

Verdict

Anybody who approaches the GreenWorks 24252 Variable Speed Cordless Blower with expectations that are too high will certainly be disappointed. This is not a blower manufactured for heavy duty work.

We came to the conclusion that it will only be useful for lifting a little dust and a few leaves here and there. If you are looking for more power, we will be the first to recommend that you look elsewhere.

If your idea is to replace your main blower with this one, we wouldn’t advise you to do this. Want something to use when there are some leaves on the patio or driveway? You can go ahead. When the grass and leaves are wet, you could frustrate yourself attempting to blow them with this blower.

On the other hand, Greenworks does make the “Greenworks Pro Cordless Blower” that is known as the the most powerful cordless blower. Greenworks makes a very good leaf blower, depending on your needs and uses depends on which one you choose.

We recommend this blower for smaller areas, but are quick to qualify our recommendation. Your happiness will depend on what expectations you have before buying the product.
