I spotted a new Bosch 18V cordless blower a few weeks ago, model GBL18V-71. Bosch hasn’t gotten back to me yet about a few questions, but there should be enough to go by for a quick discussion.
It’s said to be compact, fast, and powerful, with rated air delivery of 71 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and speeds of up to 167 mph. There are 2 speed settings.
The bare tool blower bundle, GBL18V-71N, comes with a standard nozzle, a standard nozzle extension, a small diameter nozzle, and a debris-collection tube.
Debis collection tube? What the heck is that?
Hmm, high pressure air over an opening creates a vacuum. But that doesn’t seem to be what I’m seeing in the product photos.
Maybe it’s meant for blowing out holes, such as in brick or blocks, with the debris collection tube being a place for the dust to blow into, instead of out in the environment. But wouldn’t a compact cordless vac be better for such a task?
Aside from Bosch’s website, Acme Tool is the only other place I’ve been able to find anything about this blower, and all it told me that I didn’t already know was a price.

Note: There’s no mention of what accessories you get, but the GBL18V-71N model number does match up, so you *should* get the attachments mentioned above.
