    On a backpack blower what do you consider more important, CFM or MPH? I am looking at various blowers (brand does not matter, I own different brands) and notice that with various engine sizes some have higher cfm and lower mph and vice versa.

    I would think that cfm is what is really going to move material, what do you think?

    This has been discussed a few times before. Do a search to get more responses.

    If you're blowing areas with any kind of considerable size, CFMs far outweigh MPH in importance. This also holds true if you work in areas which are prone to windy conditions.:)
