I have the kobalt 24v blower, my reasoning was all my tools are kobalt 24v so it made sense too me too continue the trend. My drive is gravel, my driveway at the house is cement. Between stones from the tires, grass clippings from mowing, and random debris from storms. Not too mention dust and debris which collect in the garage. I use it every other day too just clean up around here. Decks and porches included. Battery life is great. I can get 2-3 cleanings before a noticeable difference in performance. If and when my 2 stroke weed whacker dies, I’m seriously contemplating the electric version as well…..
