HART opens the door to a whole new level of performance with the 650 CFM leaf blower
HART’s first phase of lawn care equipment met the needs of homeowners with small to medium-size lawns with a focus on a low cost of entry. The brand’s latest phase focuses on higher performance. We were able test the HART650 CFM leaf blower to see how far it has advanced.
HART 650 CFM Leaf Blower Performance
HART packs a maximum 600 CFM and 160 mph in a package that is powered from a 240V lithium battery and driven by a brushless motor. Those are much higher numbers than we saw with the first phase of HART’s lawn care line.
Our force meter showed that we achieved 9.7 Newtons in high and 16.3 Newtons with the turbo concentrator. After removing the nozzle, it produced a higher blowing power of 9.8 Newtons in high and 17.1 Newtons in turbo. Considering the 550 CFM blower from last season hit just 14.0 Newtons, it’s a big improvement and brings HART up to a very relevant performance level compared to other brands.
This blower was also part of the Ultra Quiet series by HART. Where many battery-powered blowers we’ve tested run in the mid-80s to low 90s for decibel readings, HART registered just 72 decibels in high and 76 decibels in turbo. Those measurements are based on A-weighted, slow response and taken from our operator’s ear.
The HART650 CFM leaf blower is also compatible with a battery-powered motor. It is very quiet. Only Ryobi’s 730 CFM blower has been close to the same level, measuring the exact same levels.
The kit comes with a 5.0Ah battery, so that’s what we used for our runtime tests. The blower ran for twenty minutes, 23 seconds at high setting. Turbo mode reduced the time to 12 minutes and 5 seconds. For most post-mowing cleanup, that’s more than enough runtime. When it comes to corraling leaves, it’s just a matter of how much area you’re hoping to
