Top Customer Reviews
Of the two battery capacities available, this review is for the largest capacity 6AH version.
I am happy with this blower, but I am not sure I got my $370 worth from it. If it was $100 cheaper, I would give it 5 stars. Note the price did come down after Christmas 2015. I have many other cordless DeWalt hand tools (not yard tools), and I understand they are a commercial grade, premium brand, but even if this blower was $270 with the big battery pack, I would still consider that high.
Don't get me wrong, this is the best cordless blower on the market currently in terms of air flow and results. I researched cordless blowers before purchasing. As far as battery powered blowers go, this one will make you the most happy. But the analogy that best fits here is that this is kind of like getting a 5-star crash rating on a Mazda Miata. Sure its crash rating is the best amongst its peers (tiny cars), but overall it is not nearly as safe in a crash as a large SUV in absolute terms. Plug-in blowers or gas blowers are the SUVs in that analogy. So go into this with eyes wide open and with the appropriate expectations and you will be happy with the performance.
The one thing I am extremely satisfied with is the improved overall task experience. This is why we all want a battery powered blower. It takes only seconds to pick up the blower in the garage, snap in a battery and start blowing off an area. It's perfect for small tasks where the actual blowing takes less time than unrolling a power cable and then rolling it back up, especially if the task at hand is a good distance from a power plug.
The DCBL790H1 works well for the specific reason I got it which was to frequently blow off a covered outdoor porch wrapping around my house and to blow off my garage and driveway. I love not having to be tethered to a cord nor roll a cord up when done. I'm 6'1, so this blower's weight is not an issue to me. I can operate it with one hand easily. I used it once to blow dry leaves off my yard and was sufficiently satisfied. After about 30 minutes, the battery was nearly depleted. Other reviewers have stated that cordless blowers don't work that well on wet leaves. From my experience with the dry leaves, I would expect the same trouble on wet leaves with this blower. Although you can vary the blowing speed, in practice, I almost always pull the trigger all the way for max air flow (and least run time).
One thing other reviewers have brought up is that the air tube is the same full diameter from the output of the fan to the exit of the short tube. I plan to experiment with putting some fitting on the end to see if compressing the air flow improves performance. Sounds like a good 3D printing challenge or maybe an opportunity to do a little McGyver-ing.
UPDATE: March 19th, 2017. Do not buy this model. I purchased the unit 15 months ago and it is now useless. Like too many other reviews, it now makes the same high pitched noise while not blowing any air. Once it started making the noise, it degraded rapidly. Sometimes, I could let it sit overnight and have a few minutes of use of it the next day, but not any more. This thing is just a flawed design. I bought it when it first came out and was priced considerably more than it is now. Being out of warranty, I am stuck with trying to decide whether it is worth spending more money to get it repaired by DeWalt or to sell off the good 6AH battery for $170.
In the driveway it's been fantastic as well, though there I only use it for the odd lawn clippings and such. If you're looking for a blower to do basic yard cleanup, I'd say this is the one that you're looking for. Great battery life, plenty of velocity, and at the end of the day you won't smell like 2 cycle gas which is a huge bonus.
My first test was to see how the blower handled. I did want to run the thing down. However after I cleaned my entire yard, and then some, the battery still had charge. It out lasted ME. So WITHOUT charging the battery and used it again the following week. It kept the charge and I once again cleaned the entire yard. This went on for three weeks until it finally did need a charge.
Now I do have a big yard - 1.3 acres with a number of gardens, a pool and a very large driveway. The blower had plenty of power to handle my yard.
Some interesting points I would like to make concerning this blower.
1- It is stubby. So you can really get this thing into small tight spots to clean FAR more out then other blowers. I was able to sneak this little gem behind bushes, chairs, anything. This is the cleanest my yard has been in years.
2-Not having to drag of watch out for the power cord was wonderful. It also cut my blowing time down tremendously. What used to take me an hour now takes me 20 minutes or less. Being able to move this blower around quickly is a real time saver. And not seeing the power cord sitting in the pool or ripping out my flower is also quite nice! And I can pop out the blower for a quick clean. Unlike with cords I just gave up doing that.
3- The blower is very well balanced. Ergonomically it is very easy to handle with one hand. Actually I prefer using one hand with this. The only down side is if you are a lefty your pants leg get sucked up in the intake. Not that big a problem.
4-Quality built. Yes you can bash this one around with no problem if that's what you wish.
The down side:
2-It does only have about a 35 or so minute charge. This is great for summer time use. However a big fall clean up you will need a corded blower to use for an hour or so. I do plan on keeping my Toro only because it has the mulcher. And again for the longer fall clean up.
Otherwise I highly recommend this blower
