Skil PWRCore 20 Cordless Blower

The Skil PWRCore 20 Cordless Blower Combines Value and Power On a Lightweight Platform

The Skil PWRCore 20 lineup fully has the homeowner in mind. The entirety of their 20V battery-powered line is designed for convenience and utility, particularly with small- to medium-sized lawns. The Skil 20V cordless blower (BL4714B-10) is a prime example of that DIY focus. It’s small and light, and its power and runtime make it a perfect option for quick post-mow cleanup.

Skil PWRCore 20 Cordless Blower Performance


For a 20V system, the Skil PWRCore 20 did pretty well! We managed to get a little over thirteen minutes of continuous runtime on high with the kitted 4.0Ah battery. This should be plenty of time if you have a smaller driveway or don’t have a lot to clear out.

Blowing Force

Initial impressions of this Skil BL4714B-10 blower lead us to believe this is great for light- to medium-duty applications. Our force meter clocked it at 7.9N on high and 7.1N with the included fan nozzle. This is a little lower than some of the others we’ve had our hands-on but still strong enough to clear light debris and leaves.

Editor’s Note: About CFM Specifications

CFM numbers vary wildly depending on where you take the measurement from. Is the measurement taken from the end of the tube? At the end of the motor housing? With a tapered nozzle attached? Too many variables exist to get a consistent or meaningful standard number. That’s why Pro Tool Reviews takes its own Newton force measurements.

Size and Weight

The Skil PWRCore 20 cordless blower weighs in at 4.06 pounds as a bare tool and jumps up to 5.69 pounds with a 4.0Ah battery. Even with the battery, that’s still a very manageable weight. At just 32.5 inches, this blower is great for folks with limited space or lifting constraints.

Ergonomics and Controls

The weighting of this blower is spot on and the handle fits well in my hand. When in use, the nozzle points down at an ideal angle for clearing away yard cuttings or seasonal leaves.
