The variable speed switch is very smooth and easy to operate with one hand, and provides a very nice linear variation over its operating range. It also has a two position adjuster on the nozzle tip, which converts it from normal high flow (cfm) blowing to high speed (mph) blasting without the need to install and remove any attachments.

Unfortunately, the highest setting with the switch set on 5 and the tip set on high does not produce sufficient blast to budge almost any stuck debris or wet leaves. In fact, my 20 volt lithium 2-speed blower produces more blasting power on its high setting, even though it is only rated at 125 mph maximum, whereas the Greenworks 40 volt lithium blower is rated at 150 mph. I did notice that the impellers on both blowers are the same size and that the 40 volt blower produces a noticeably lower and quieter tone than the 20 volt blower on its high setting, which suggests that the motor speed is slower. Given that the 40 volt (146Wh) battery has nearly 3 times the capacity of the 20 volt (52Wh) battery, I would think that the maximum motor speed could be increased to produce more velocity and flow without significantly reducing battery run time.

Another consideration for taller people is that the single blower tube is very short and there is no extension provided, such that taller people may need to bend over or crouch in order to obtain the desired position and angle of the outlet. It is significantly shorter than the 2-piece tube on my 20 volt blower. This is great for me, since I'm only 5'-3" tall, but anyone over 5'-9" may find it uncomfortable.

This blower costs nearly twice as much as the 20 volt model, mostly because of the higher cost of the battery and charger, so I have to wonder if it's really worth it for the longer run time and variable speed switch.

I am a handyman and use cordless tools on a daily basis. I purchases 4 of the greenworks 40v tools and they are lived up to the hype except for this one. It does an ok job. If you already have some other tools and batteries then you can purchase this blower without the battery and score a good deal...thats the only way its worth the money. It doesnt blow at 150mph..it doesnt blow at 100mph either...it just does an ok job...get it if you have other greenworks 40v tools and batteries and if you have a small area and arent in a huge hurry.

Lithium Ion batteries are definitely the way to go. I have run this Greenworks 40V blower well over 30 minutes at full power on the initial charge and it is still going strong. I gave it only 4 stars because I expected more power from 40 volts. The price is quite high because Lithium Ion batteries are expensive right now.

This blower is acceptable for clearing grass clippings from the driveway, and very good for blowing debris from the garage. It has a variable speed control, not just 2-speeds; the lowest setting is about right for cleaning around my workshop. Although the power doesn't compare with a corded electric or a gas blower, I am very pleased with this purchase because it is so clean, quiet, and convenient.

Update - I have used this blower for 5 months and I continue to be very pleased with its performance. It does a fine job with grass clippings. I have never run the battery down; I recharge it after 3 or 4 uses.

I had used this today but prior I had to charge up the battery for it. That didn't take that long to do. There is a signal when you first turn it on and every time after that. Variable speed is just like my electric corded Toro blower and vac, but I didn't want to use that anymore. These 40v 4 amp cordless ones aren't that heavy too me it was lite to carry around. At the tip there is adjustment to the air flow normal and wide focus. This produce arrives in a smaller box inside is another a smaller box which is your product,just to let you know but well packaged from Amazon.

To me out of all the electric leaf or electric broom blowers I've owned for over 30 years this one tops the rest. I never bother with a gas models always been electric of these lawn duties. If you want something to get the job right the first time than this is the Leaf blower for you. You can also use it to blow away dirt, sand, all sorts of leafs and grass clippings. I am sure you can use it in your work shop on saw dust too. I also planning on using it in my screen patio clean-up project 2012 to clean up the concrete floor before I use my 1500 psi electric power washer on that too. See I am 100% green I use electric and now cordless battery power tools.

With this leaf blower you get 1x 40v 4 amp large ion-battery, 1x 40v 2 amp / 40v 4 amp charger, and the 24102a along with the manual. Which I like they put everything about the unit and the battery in the one manual. Others like RYOBI has a bunch of small to medium size manuals all over in the boxes to house the charger, the battery and the main unit. This way Greenwise gives you what looks like a recycled manual well it's brown in color.

Now for the pros and cons.

Pros:
Lite weight, variable speed, power on signal tone, adjustable nozzle head, 35+ minutes of leaf blowing time

Cons:
None that I can see.

Also when you open the box you'll notice that it looks like some parts are slightly duff-up but either it was used to test out or who ever handled it at the factory didn't bother to wipe down the parts some more. I've notice this on pretty much all 3x 40v 4 amp cordless lawn equipment from Greenworks and RYOBI power tools so far. To me it's minor because once you go outside and start using your 40v 4 amp Greenworks 19-inch lawn mower (excellent mower I must say), and the RYOBI 40v 4 amp weed trimmer and edger (excellent too) and now the Greenworks 24102a will get duff-up even more. I had also ordered the Greenworks 22632 dual action, adjustable head 22-inch hedge trimmer that was so cheap on here, but of course it was because it doesn't come with the battery or charger, but in all you can get that on here. Whatever you do don't buy the RYOBI version of this 40v 4amp shrub trimmer I had one and returned it back to HOME DEPOT! Quickly order 22632 instead.

As you can see I've ordered about 4x 40v 4 amp ion-battery types for the lawn. I am very tired of spending over 500 to 720 for lawn service. I doing it myself and I can do a much better job using these 40v 4 amp Greenworks cordless products and they'll pay for themselves in a year cost wise.

Final note...
Greenworks 24102a will replace your manual push broom and water hose, since you won't need to waste water to wash off your deck after you run your lawn mower. I use this product to clean off my Greenworks 25292 after I use it. No need to use a rag to do it! Just blow the dirt off the unit. Ran it on it on the front of the house to clean off the side walk and drive way both are huge and I only use one cell out the 4 lights. So only 3 lights are still showing. Not bad as it's suppose to go 30 to 35 minutes on 1 charge. That more than enough for me. I recommend you don't run it if you not using it to get more life out the unit.

Update: 4.25.12
Still going and still have about 3 lights lit left on the battery so far. I have sand/dirt here and my man-made walkway was covered by sand/dirt. I was able to set the blower to max setting it got louder but boy it it blast the sand/dirt off the walkway in the back. I even used it back in the front to do a clean edge cut of dual drive well. I had to do that with a shovel since the St. Augustine Grass is so thick, it needed a square flat shovel chop away. Well that left more sand/dirt with the glass clippings. Again using this leaf blower to blast that away and max blowing power.

Also re-did the front sidewalk again I have wild ducks that like to walk around and leave stuff behind if you know what I mean, so again the blower move that off the sidewalk. Now after all of this I am down to 2 lights on the battery.

Update: 5.30.12
The unit has develop a slight odd noise to it when blowing out the air it does. This doesn't effect the performance though. Just miss the quiet noise it once had when it was brand new. Other than that it's works..

I use this blower for much more than blowing leaves...while it might not have the power a gas blower, its more than adequate for day to day household cleaning or yard work...and there simply isn't a battery operated model on the market that lasts as long on a single charge than this unit.

After spending over $400 trying to make my Black and Decker cordless blower perform, I finally heeded research and reviews and purchased this one. I've had it one week and I love it. I think some people's expectations of the power of a cordless blower are unrealistic. None of them, including the $600 Stihl, will blow around piles of wet leaves or branches. You need to plug in your big one for that. But for everyday clean up of my garden paths, patios, and driveway, this is terrific. The Black and Decker would begin to fade after a few minutes, but this one keeps going even after 30 minutes at the same lithium-fueled level. I haven't tried going much beyond that because everything is pristine, including my neighbor's walkway and driveway. It's light enough and quiet enough for me. I wish I had bought this earlier.

I decided on this 40-volt model (over the 20-volt) after considerable online research. I live in the desert and have mostly pool deck, rock, and gravel for a back yard. Leaf and palm-tree litter have a tendency to get stuck or settle into the gravel and I wanted something that would blow out this debris. It took me about a half hour to complete the job the first time because things had gotten a bit out of hand, but the results were excellent. Now I should be able to whip through the job in five or ten minutes once a week throughout the year when I'm out back doing other pool chores. This product is very efficient when moving larger piles of dry leaf litter on hard surfaces like concrete or pool decking. It's not as powerful as corded version leaf blowers, and I had to work a bit at loosening packed leaf litter under some trellis-type jasmine and red-tip photina. I'm a bit taller at 6'2" and didn't feel like I was bending over to use the blower for most of the job. The only real inconvenience has nothing to do with the product, but the desert heat. I'll store the battery inside the house during summer months when not using the tool.

I love this leaf blower. It is perfect for blowing debris off of my front and back porch. The various speed makes it easy to blow the debris in the right direction. I would recommend this for light jobs.

This machine is pretty good it gets the job done just wish it had more power to it, would be pretty cool to see a backpack version of an electric blower something that could really push stuff. Im a landscaper at a golf course ive never really used a blower that I though had enough power the more power a machine has the more it can push to get jobs done. For clearing leaves off a deck or patio this machine works and also for cleaning dirt off stairs and other yard stuff. Would be cool if it was bigger or if there was a backpack version with some power even if it needed more power to operate could be pretty nice. Greenworks is a pretty good company wish they made industrial versions of these machines that worked the same or better than gas then I would really like to test those tools. I enjoy using there tools no smoke or gas smell seems like a good thing to me using them all day at work makes it really nice to not have to use it at home. Other than that its a pretty good blower to use around the house in the back yard this is what I found for this type of machine.
