Obviously an 80cc blower is wiping the pavement with an electric blower but I haven’t been able to figure out what to convert NM to. The gas handhelds that list specs in mph/cfm aren’t beating my battery 730cfm 160mph blowers at all, or by all that much.The most powerful battery powered blower tops out af 21 Newtons of force I believe. My BR800 is rated at 41 Newtons and the Echo 9010 is 48 Newtons. If I'm doing a leaf cleanup I'm going to use a gas blower. Or two. And maybe a walk behind blower as well. And then I'll fire up the 37 hp leaf loader which is crazy loud, and maybe leave some fine leaf dust all around if things are dry as it vents out of the dump trailer.
Everything is quiet now. Dishwasher, washing machine, hybrid cars, people might just see a “br800” as excessive on their neighbors 1/4 acre plot. I would be interested to see how much faster a backpack blower is compared to a 730cfm blower in each of my hands, on a subdivision lot.
The blower performance thing reminds me of when I drove a Nissan Leaf (730cfm electric blower) for two years. No, it wasn’t faster than a 4.6l mustang (BR80) but it was faster than dam near anything else (most mid tier blowers).
