Bosch cordless leaf blower ALB 18 LI – slim blower for compact surfaces

With the ALB 18 LI blower, the manufacturer relies on mobility and a slimline at the same time. The leaf blower from Bosch with battery drive scores with a decent performance and is often praised by consumers.

Reliable garden helper with a fairly short operating time

The blower creates an airflow that moves the foliage and small branches at a moderate 210 km/h. However, even damp leaves can still be successfully mobilized at this blowing speed. After about an hour of charging, the Bosch ALB 18 LI blows the fallen leaves in the desired direction for up to 20 minutes. After that, it must be reloaded. Therefore, it is advisable to have two batteries at hand.

Note: The batteries and the charger must be ordered separately.

A clear advantage of this compact blower is its pleasantly low weight of only 1.8 kg. Thus, the ALB 18 LI leaf blower from Bosch presents itself as extremely handy.
