EGO Power+ LB6504 Cordless Leaf Blower Features and Specifications
EGO Power+ LB6504 physical dimensions are 36 x 6 x 9.8 inches (~91.5 x 15.3 x 24.9 cm) and it weighs just 4.77 pounds (~2.17 kg) without the battery.
EGO Power+ LB6504 is powered by the lithium-ion 56 volts battery and it can be bought as a 'bare tool' (tool only) or in combination with the 56V 5.0 Ah BA2800T ARC lithium-ion battery and the standard 56V Power+ CH2100 lithium-ion battery charger.
Since 56V ARC Lithium batteries are used to power 50+ different cordless tools, getting a standard or even a rapid battery charger and few batteries can save a significant amount of money when ordering tools only later.
For example, the CH2100 standard battery charger can recharge a fully discharged 56V 5.0 Ah battery in 100 minutes, while a rapid battery charger can recharge the same battery in 40 minutes.
EGO Power+ 56V 5.0 Ah BA2800T ARC lithium battery features 5 LED battery charge indicator - after pressing, the battery condition is displayed for 10 seconds, allowing the user to easily check the remaining battery charge:
- 5 green LEDs: battery charge level 80-100%,
- 4 green LEDs: battery charge level 60-80%,
- 3 green LEDs: battery charge level 40-60%,
- 2 green LEDs: battery charge level 20-40%
- 1 green LED: battery charge level 10-20%,
- 1 flashing red LED: battery charge level <10%,
- 5 flashing red LEDs: battery almost fully discharged.
Also, when 5 red LEDs are constantly ON, the battery is overheated.
Note: for safety reasons, lithium-ion packs are transported in semi-charged condition - when the battery arrives, be sure to charge it fully before the very first use. Also, although the EGO Power+ LB6504 is easy to assemble, use, and maintain, just in case, when it arrives, be sure to read the Owner's Guide thoroughly.
EGO Power+ LB6504 comes with a variable speed dial, allowing the user to set the airspeed/volume between 225 and 500 CFM, with the maximum air volume provided when Turbo mode is engaged - 650 CFM.
Unit comes with three nozzles, normal, flat, and tapered nozzle, each one used for different types of debris.
Maxim airspeed without tapered nozzle is 160 mph (~258 km/h) and 180 mph (~290 km/h) with tapered nozzle.
Maximum blowing force is 21N - no, the unit cannot hover on its own.
When the 56V 5.0Ah battery is used, operating time depends on the power output and airspeed:
- low airspeed: up to 200 minutes,
- high airspeed: 30 minutes,
- Turbo mode: 15 minutes.
As one can see, as the speed is increased, the runtime of the battery is becoming shorter and shorter - but, when Turbo mode is used, EGO Power+ LB6504 is a very strong leaf blower.
EGO Power+ LB6504 comes with a 5-year tool warranty and a 3-year battery warranty.
Long Story Short: If You are looking for a strong cordless leaf blower and you don't mind paying some extra, especially if You plan on getting few more EGO Power+ 56V cordless tools, then consider EGO Power+ LB6504 cordless leaf blower.
When being used in Turbo mode, even cordless EGO Power+ LB6504 can be noisy when compared with smaller and weaker cordless leaf blowers, but it is still less noisy and pleasant to use than gas operated leaf blowers.
But, in Turbo mode, it can be easily clean wet leaves and other similar debris.
