I recently purchased both the DEWALT DCE100B 20V MAX Compact Jobsite Blower and the DEWALT DCBL720P1 20V MAX 5.0 Ah Lithium Ion XR Brushless Blower. Both of these cordless blowers are of the 20v MAX variety. They both are very powerful, but each has unique qualities that may determine which one you purchase.
This blower is small, compact, and light. It has 3 speeds for more control. It can be used for many different applications. One application that it is not recommended for is leaf blowing. Even though this cordless blower can blow leaves and yard debris, the other larger blower is better for this. With the three speeds, this blower can be taken many places and used without making such a mess. Sometimes that is what is needed to get a large job done quicker, especially in a warehouse or work environment where a little dust kicked up doesn’t matter so much.
Also, this blower comes with a inflator/deflator attachment. This can come in real handy when it is time to blow up that inflatable pool or air mattress. Then again when it is time to deflate.
I purchased the tool only option, but this cordless blower can be purchased with the charger and battery in a kit also – DEWALT DCE100M1 20V MAX Compact Jobsite Blower Kit
The DEWALT DCE100B 20V MAX Compact Jobsite Blower has a 100 CFM rating. It also has 3 speeds and variable trigger for added control.
I used this cordless blower to blow off a small driveway and it took 5 minutes. Check out the video below to see how the DEWALT DCE100B 20V MAX Compact Jobsite Blower did blowing off the driveway. Then the other blower is after.
This cordless blower is larger than its cousin, but is still light. The DEWALT DCBL720P1 20V MAX 5.0 Ah Lithium Ion XR Brushless Blower is a real good choice if leaves and debris are on the list. This cordless blower will power through larger areas and remove debris just like a blower that is plugged in.
At 400 CFM it has 4 times the air flow as the smaller compact jobsite cordless blower. It also has a variable speed trigger. This cordless blower has punch in its power.
In another post I used this blower to blow off a roof and a long driveway and it did great. I am not sure exactly how long it took, but the 5Ah battery that came with it lasted all the way through and still had 1 full light left on the power meter on the battery.

I used this cordless blower to blow off the same small driveway and it took 2 minutes. The video below starts at 2:50 if you just want to see how the DEWALT DCBL720P1 20V MAX 5.0 Ah Lithium Ion XR Brushless Blower performed blowing off the driveway.
