The advantages of this cordless axial leaf blower from GreenWorks come in abundance, just like the leaves they were designed to deal with!
Comparable to a petrol-powered machine, the G40AB is 44 per cent lighter and produces up to 10 times less noise and vibration. Added to this, it is does not have the restraint of a power cord, the hassle of petrol and oil and is zero maintenance. The battery inserts at about a 45 degree angle making it easy to check the battery energy level by simply pushing a button located at the back of the battery which activates an LED display.
Powering the unit is a 40 volt lithium-ion battery (not supplied) with the convenience of push button start. The blower produces a forceful 110mph air speed to blast leaves to where you want them. The axial fan acts a bit like a jet engine to deliver a lot of air volume at high speed.
The GreenWorks G40AB features a variable speed trigger with cruise control for optimised air speed control to give you just the right amount of blowing power needed. The blowing performance at all speeds is impressive. At the lower settings you can shift small leaves and debris without disturbing the gravel in paths and walkways. On medium speeds, the blower can move leaves and small sticks easily. On the maximum setting, the G40AB really whips up a storm, moving piles of debris and blowing out hard-to-reach leaves and twigs from under shrubs.
Thanks to the lightweight design and cushion over mold grip, operation is comfortable and, on a single charge of a 2Ah battery, the axial blower can run for up to 30 minutes.
The battery is interchangeable with the entire GreenWorks G-Max 40V range of garden tools.
NB: Battery and charger NOT included. Also available as a kit G40ABK2.
