FILPOW B8 Pro Leaf Blower
FILPOW B8 Pro Leaf Blower Review
The folks at FILPOW recently approached me and asked me to review their FIILPOW B8 Pro Leaf Blower. I’ve seen this blower pop up on my Amazon feed, but up to this point have only really reviewed major tool manufacturer blowers.
So we took the FILPOW B8 Pro Leaf Blower into the yard and job site to see if it was worth the investment.
• Voltage: 20V MAX
• Battery Capacity 4.0Ah
• Air Volume Range Low:300CFM / High: 380CFM / Turbo: 450CFM
• Blower Force (N)12 N
• Weight5.3 lbs. (Bare) 6.7 lbs. (With Battery)
At 6.7 lbs. with the battery this B8 Pro blower is well-balanced and is easily operated in one hand. It has a couple of features we’ve come to expect in a leaf blower such as:
Variable Speed Trigger
I’ve always appreciated having trigger control for delicate, precise blowing or full-on. As a carpenter, I use a leaf blower in my yard at home but also on the job site to clear sawdust and debris and clean off woodworking tools.
The blower features variable airspeed and volume, Select LOW, HIGH, or TURBO MODE via the speed dial and turbo button for different needs of cleaning works. While using the blower I tested this feature but always found myself keeping the blower set to HIGH, on TURBO mode, and either locked-on or “feathering” the blower by using the trigger to control the airflow.
What’s more important in a leaf blower MPH or CFM?
They are both important and distinct metrics. A higher CFM will help you clear a larger area and push leaves further. A higher MPH will help you better lift wet leaves and debris.
The Turbo mode delivers 450 CFM of air volume at 120 MPH, maximum air power. I found that this was a decent amount of airflow and was able to clear wet leaves, and other stubborn debris faster.
I also used to clean up on my carpentry job sites. It was great for cleaning driveways and walkways of sawdust and for blowing off my tools before storing them in the van. I really like that the air intake is not on the side of the tool, like some competitors, which sucks in your jacket or pants and stalls the blower.
The FILPOW B8 Pro Leaf Blower battery will last approximately 28 minutes runtime for low-speed mode, 15 minutes for high-speed mode via their 2.0AH battery with an LED power display.
In general, most battery-powered leaf blowers will last 20 to 30 minutes per charge. However, there are several variables that will affect how long a cordless leaf blower lasts. The turbo feature on the FILPOW is one of them which will give you only 7 minutes of “full-throttle,” runtime. When using the blower on leaves I found myself using the Turbo mode exclusively, it’s the only way to roll!
Improvements To The FILPOW B8 Pro Leaf Blower
The battery charging 2hrs 20 minutes, you need more than one battery if you want to any real leaf blowing. The unfortunate thing is that FILPOW doesn’t offer a second battery. I hope they change that.
This coming December FILPOW is going to offer the B8 Pro +40V Leaf Blower
with two 20V batteries producing 550 CFM. As of now, there does not seem to be a plan to offer additional batteries.

This is the WORST blower ever.Dont buy it! It’s completely dead but when I put batteries on charger it shows green. Left it an hour still green, out them on the blower and they’re dead. Another hr waiting for it to REALLY charge this time. DONT BUY IT!
