The new 18V X2 LXT® Lithium-Ion (36V) Cordless Blower is powered by TWO 18V Lithium-Ion batteries. So users get 36V power and run-time, but without leaving the 18V platform. It's a more convenient option over gas-powered blowers.
The Tool Nuts at Berland's House of Tools took it for a "test ride" -- check out their video below.
