The Greenworks 82V Blower Brings Cordless and Commercial Together

Of the many tools that populate the realm of outdoor power equipment, cordless products have probably made the biggest leap of all. Indeed, battery-powered technology and performance are at a stage that many of us found hard to imagine, in some instances rivaling gas-driven gear. A case in point is the Greenworks 82V commercial backpack blower (model 82BA26).

Let’s take a quick tour, shall we?

Greenworks 82V Commercial Backpack Blower Performance

  • Max Airflow: 690 CFM
  • Max Airspeed: 195 MPH
  • Blowing Force: 26N

  • Noise Level: 73.4dB
  • Gas-Equivalent: 63cc

Based on the numbers, at least, this 82V backpack blower can get pretty gusty. According to Greenworks, the max air volume is 690 CFM with a top speed of 195 MPH.

That’s performance that’s fairly comparable to the Greenworks 60V X-Range model.

And here’s something worth noting. In spite of this power, this blower’s brushless motor seems to keep the noise down. Specifically, Greenworks advertises 73.4 decibels, which is hardly ear-shattering.

Of course, whenever you’re dealing with cordless equipment, the million-dollar question is: “How long can I run it?” The manufacturer says that the Greenworks commercial backpack blower should provide 34 minutes of runtime on turbo, using two fully-charged 8Ah batteries.

So again, based on the numbers, you have the power and the time to tackle various commercial applications.
