Over at Amazon, today’s deal of the day is a Dewalt 20V Max lawn & garden bundle, including their brushless string trimmer, blower, a charger, and 5Ah battery pack.
The blower is pretty darned good. I have a test sample from when it first came out, and it’s one of few lawn & garden tools that have earned a place in the long-term tester stable. I’m strongly considering buying this combo set as for-keeps equipment.
No, it’s not as powerful as larger and beefier units on the market, but it’s light, easily maneuvered, and very capable. I use it for blowing dust out the door (and definitely wear safety goggles for this), sawdust off table saws being used or tested outside, powdered snow off my windshield, and every so often for light leaf-clearing.
Its variable speed motor can deliver up to 500 CFM of air at 90 MPH.
I haven’t tested the Dewalt 20V Max brushless string trimmer, but its reviews seem decent enough. Most of the negative user reviews focus on how it’s a lighter duty tool, but there are some other complaints as well.
It has a 13″ cutting swath and works with 0.080″ line with bump feed.
Sale Price: $239
Buying a 1-battery kit and bare tool separately would cost $294 to $297, and so with this deal you appear to save around $55 to $58. I’d say that makes this is a good deal.
Deal ends at 3am ET 5/3/2017 unless supplies sell out sooner.
