    Who uses a cordless leaf blower for their trailers ?

    I was wondering which ones are decent without breaking the bank...

    I heard something that inverters might not be the "cleanest" form of power ? Is that an issue ?

    Right now I only use a 400w Everlast inverter from Walmart.

    Also, any leaf/vacuum cordless ones out there ?

    I used a 20v black and decker from Walmart back when i did van and had no issue with it. Charged it up after each use and it did the job fine. Paid around $60-70 i believe

    I use a 40v kobalt it was on sale little over $50 all in. I don’t know how well that 400w inverter would do. I have a 1800w and with the apu running it drops about .2 of a volt. Usually blow the trailer out twice before recharging.
     
    BlueThunderr Thanks this.

    How many watts does it say on the battery charger ? There should be a sticker on it somewhere.

    It only has 1.35 amps @120v on the charger. According to google that’s only 162 watts

    It’s ok I thought it would have a little more power, but I have a reefer so it’s tougher to get stuff moving a long ways. It’d do better in a dry van.

    I use a Ryobi battery blower from Home Depot. Works great. I have an 1800w inverter to charge it when needed. They also work great for cleaning the truck. I’ve had the same one for 2.5 years.
     
    Sisbro and BlueThunderr Thank this.

    Husband has the one by Worx that came from Walmart. It's been a couple of years ago now, so I don't remember what it cost, but I think it was well under $100.00 . He says it works great and has a reefer also. It lasts about 2 rounds. He has a 1500 w inverter.
     
    Sisbro, BlueThunderr and 062 Thank this.
