Milwaukee just added another tool to their ever-popular M12 lineup. The new Milwaukee M12 Blower is a lightweight solution to help keep job sites and other areas clean and debris-free. So let’s jump in and see what this is all about.
Milwaukee M12 Blower Overview
Keeping the job site clean can help in keeping a safe work environment. Without things to trip or slip on, you are creating a safer place. Well, that is where this blower comes into play. While this blower can be used for a lot of different applications like cleaning up after the day, drying a vehicle, and more, we had a number of guys tell us it’s perfect for those quick clean-ups to keep the work area clean. When you are cutting or doing demo work, it’s important to keep the area clean. With this blower, you can quickly and easily push the debris to the side and out of harm’s way.
Best of all, it’s lightweight and not too powerful where it will kick up debris in the air.
Milwaukee M12 Blower Features
The M12 Compact Spot Blower is small and lightweight. The blower offers 175 CFM with 110 MPH in a small compact design of only 21.5″ for blower and tube. And best of all, it only weighs 3.3 lbs.
The blower is powered by any of the Milwaukee M12 batteries.
The handle has a traditional M12 handle with the same look and feel.
On the top of the blower, there is a slide switch that allows the user to switch between two speeds. This switch can easily be operated with your thumb which means you can operate this blower with one hand.
The intake is located on the back of the blower so it won’t be trying to suck up your shirt or pants.
Milwaukee designed this blower with a single tube that can be removed. The blower comes with two attachments, a sweeping nozzle, and a rubber nozzle.
Milwaukee M12 Blower Performance
This isn’t going to compete with the 18V or larger blowers. So when you look at this blower, you have to understand that it’s for clean-up and other smaller jobs. Considering that it has some serious velocity to it and enough to push small debris away, but it’s not overpowering where it will lift a ton of dust in the air and lower the air quality.
So in regards to performance for quick clean-up, it works great. The blower is well balanced and having two speeds is a nice added touch.
Milwaukee M12 Blower Value
You can pick this up at your local Home Depot or online for about $80, which is the bare tool. The blower is a solid and quality tool. While this isn’t going to blow you away, it’s not meant to. So for $80, it does what you need it to do and it’s well built and will last.
Milwaukee M12 Blower Wrap Up
Overall, this is a nice addition to the M12 line. While everyone won’t jump out of their seats to buy it, it does have its place. For those simple clean-ups, drying applications, and more, this does the job and does it well.
