New Black & Decker 40V Brushless Cordless Snow Blower

Black & Decker Cordless Snowblower

It seems like cordless snow blowers are the hot new thing everyone wants and now Black and Decker is getting into the market. The nice thing about cordless snow blowers is the convince of not dealing with gas. We all know now how much of a hassle ethanol has made dealing with gas powered OPE. If the equipment is not used weekly or daily you will have problems from bad gas and snow blowers can sit for a long time which is horrible for your gas powered equipment. I have to say this unit looks pretty good for the money.  You get a brushless motor which gives you a longer run time over a brushed motor and two 2.5ah batteries with the kit version of the snow blower which is priced around a $299 from various online retailers. I would imagine Black and Decker will offer a bare tool option in the future for people already in the Black and Decker 40v line.

I’m a big fan of cordless snow blowers, if you live in an area that gets six inches or less per snow fall and don’t have a huge area to clear. The cordless snow blowers are designed for a person on a typical city/suburban lot. If your looking at switching from gas powered OPE Black and Decker, pretty much has anything you would want product wise now.

Here is a quick rundown on the spec’s

  • Rubber Auger + 21 In. Clearing Path Allow for Fast, Efficient Snow Removal
  • Brushless Motor Technology Provides Power and Runtime

I started out being a jack of all trades in the IT industry out of High School, and still do a little bit of everything IT related now as independent contractor. I like to do home Improvements around my house, and as one thing lead to another I became one of those guys that love talking and using all sorts of power and hand tools. How I got involved with TIA was I loved watching their videos and just by commenting on Youtube and the Forum Dan, Eric and Travis allowed me this opportunity to help out the power tool community on the internet. Some hobbies of mine keeping a nice green lawn and vegetable garden full of all sorts of delicious things to eat. I also like to watch college football on my down time when I have it. I hope I can help people out with any questions they might have regarding lawn and garden issues and anything else they might need.


  1. I think when we all see black and decker, we immediately are drawn away. I can’t amagine that this thing has a long run time. I can’t amagine that i can even throw snow. I don’t think I will ever buy a black and decker tool.

  2. My B&D pole saw has been absolutely amazing under the most demanding conditions. I have 12 Dewalt 20/60V tools and this B&D is just as good in quality. You should actually try the tools before commenting.
