I’ve been asking for years that Milwaukee bring more outdoor power equipment tools to their 12V line and they’ve made an attempt and have brought us the cool spiffy M12 Hatchet chainsaw and while this new blower isn’t exactly for use in the yard, I find it to be a welcome addition nonetheless. Though it is a blower, don’t expect it to be used to blow leaves, it’s not designed for that since the power isn’t there but what this is is a nice compact little jobsite blower. With 175 CFM and 110 MPH think of it purpose built for blowing away all the saw dust, drywall dust, wood chips, concrete dust, etc, and other lightweight debris on the job floor or tabletops.

It’s not a Fuel brushless model which makes me wonder how much more powerful it could have been if they make one with a brushless motor and the Fuel label.

Milwaukee isn’t the first to offer a 12 Volt blower as Makita has done this already with the BU01Z and BU02Z models and those would be this Milwaukee’s direct competition. This Milwaukee model is priced at $79.00 which is $10 and $20 lower than Makita’s models respectively. Both the Makita 12V models offer a higher rated MPH however neither models provide CFM info which leads me to believe it can be so low, they don’t want to disclose. Milwaukee on the other hand discloses both numbers at 175 CFM and 110 MPH. Though at a slightly slower MPH, the Milwaukee may potentially be pumping out more air volume though we can only find out if true if Makita discloses their CFM values.

Coming in at 175 CFM and 110 MPH still makes the Milwaukee a pretty capable little unit and those figures represent entry level 18 volt performance from yesteryear from brands such as Ryobi. Although the Ryobi we know today is not the same brand we knew from years ago as their products are getting more competitive each year.

As far as features go, the M12 compact spot blower features 2 speeds along with a variable speed trigger, cruise control lock, and comes with two nozzles – a rubber round nozzle and a wide sweeping nozzle and also comes with a nozzle extension tube for added length.

As far as runtime is concerned, it’s said to be able to run for up to 15 minutes on high speed with an XC6.0ah battery. Runtime on low speed was not disclosed at time of writing.
