Maximum air speed is around 160 mph (~260 km/h) and will do the job rather good, especially considering the price of the unit. Dry leaves are collected easily, however, if it was raining, and the leaves are wet, it will take little bit more time for this unit to do the job.
Unit is light (around 4.5 pounds, ~2 kg), ergonomically designed and easy to use and operate. Two-piece blower tube is 20 inches (~51 cm) long, enabling the user to clean the floor without bending. Unit can be used with one hand, even by weaker individuals, at least for shorter period of time, for cleaning even elevated surface (cars, for example).
Unit also has so-called 'Safety Cord Lock' feature, which prevents the cord from disconnecting during use. Cord is not included - if you don't already have required cord, when ordering the unit, order the cord as well having on your mind required length depending on your garden and backyard.
Power cord specifications are in the manual, but generally, for 7 Amp unit, one needs: up to 50 feet (~15 m), 16 gauge or heavier power cord; up to 100 feet (~30 m), 14 gauge or heavier; up to 150 feet (~45 m), 12 gauge or heavier. Heavier/thicker power cords are harder to work with and for larger distances, gas operated or preferably cordless leaf blower is recommended.
Note: some sites claim that this '24012' model has two speeds or that it is battery operated. '24012' is corded model and has single speed. Model '24072' is also corded model, but it has 2 speeds and stronger, 12 Amp motor. Also, this models weighs 4.5 pounds, although some sites claim it weighs 6 pounds.
Long Story Short - Greenworks 24012 is excellent and very affordable, basic leaf blower, excellent for smaller indoors and outdoors tasks. For larger gardens and backyards, more robust unit is recommended, although Greenworks 24012 comes with 4-year limited manufacturer's warranty.
