After reviewing the GreenWorks Pro 80V and now the Enhulk 58V 930 CFM Leaf Blower, both solidify that going back to a corded blower simply isn’t an option. Perhaps at one point, battery-powered models weren’t as powerful, or the battery life wasn’t long enough to get a big job done, but that’s not the case today with new yard tools.
I tested the leaf blower from Enhulk, a brand of AiDot, by taking it to my father’s home to remove all the leaves and debris, such as dirt and little pine needles, from his driveway and walkway. I also used it at home to attempt to remove all the large pine needles from my lawn and driveway. I have a giant pine tree in my yard that turns that patch of grass, sidewalk, and park strips into a hellscape of pine needles in the fall. I also tested the battery life by locking the cruise control at full speed until the battery ran out. And how long did it take for the dead battery to charge fully?
After using the Enhulk 58V 930 CFM Leaf Blower to take care of my fall yard work duties, I was impressed by the power and control provided by the blower. But would it be enough to consider this leaf blower over others? Read on to find out, and head to our guide to the best leaf blowers for more.

Enhulk 58V 930CFM Leaf Blower: First Impressions
Out of the box, the package came with the main blower, one battery, a battery charger, three nozzles, and the main blower tube that attaches to the engine. Connecting the main tube to the blower is a little bit of a pain. The area where the tube attaches to the blower is rigged and has a little plastic protrusion. The red tab on the tube is supposed to slide over that protrusion and lock it into place. But because of the ridges, sometimes the tube would get stuck before it could get to the bottom to lock into place. So, I’d have to pull the tube off and start again.
It was a minor inconvenience because there’s no real reason to pull it off once it's on there unless you’re making room for transport. All three of the additional nozzles easily snapped on and off with ease, and Enhulk has since told us that this problem is currently being worked on.
I appreciated both the cruise control and the adjustable trigger. Adjusting the amount of air that comes out of the leaf blower by how hard you squeeze the trigger is a major benefit. The same goes for locking a specific speed on cruise, so you no longer have to hold the trigger. And much like a car, you can set the cruise control at any speed. Both features provide comfort and added control to minimize messes and make for quick yard work cleanup. Of course, if you need extra oomph, the turbo button can be useful for wet leaves or heavy debris, particularly.
When I picked up the battery from the box, I was surprised by how heavy it was, though the leaf blower itself was super light. There is a considerable difference in it compared to the GreenWorks 80V Leaf Blower. I was curious to see if the heavier Enhulk leaf blower would fatigue my arms quickly as I put the leaf blower to the test.

Jonathan tested the leaf blower, blowing leaves, dirt, and debris from his father’s driveway and sidewalks. He also tested it by removing pine needles and pine cones from his driveway and yard. Finally, battery testing was conducted to see how long it would last at max speed (no turbo) and how long it took to recharge the battery.

Enhulk 58V 930 CFM Leaf Blower: Design
Other than attaching the main tube to the blower, which I previously mentioned can be a little annoying, I liked the overall design of the blower. Even though the battery is attached to the back of the motor, the length of the blower tube still angles downward toward the ground. This natural lean downwards helps do some of the work for you, which is appreciated.
Speaking of appreciation, the battery indicator on the battery pack is a convenient feature. Five green lights in a half circle illuminate green to let you know how much battery life is left. By simply pressing the button in the middle of the battery, you can see how much battery life remains in the battery pack.
(The 930 + battery pack can fully charge within 130-140 minutes).
I also like both the cruise control and turbo buttons. Specifically about cruise control, I liked how it’s an actual button that you press that activates the LED display to let you know it's on. The cruise control feature is handy when you want to keep the blower at a consistent speed.
Enhulk 58V 930 CFM Leaf Blower: Performance
To test the battery, I drained it completely, fully charged it, then inserted it into the blower. I used the cruise control to pin the leaf blower at full throttle and let it run until the battery expired. The battery lasted 20 minutes and 40 seconds before it went kaput. That’s right in line with the manufacturer’s numbers. It took two hours and 11 minutes for the battery to recharge completely. Compared to the GreenWorks leaf blower, that might seem slow, but the Enhulk battery is twice the size, so it makes sense that it takes about double the time to charge.
I tested the leaf-blowing ability at my father’s house. The mouth of his garage and his sidewalk were covered in a big pile of yellow leaves. First, I wanted to see the difference between the nozzles. I blew one line in the leaves with each nozzle to see the spread and leaf distribution. As you can see from the image below, the max air velocity nozzle had the widest lane, the tapered nozzle was second, and surprisingly, the wide nozzle was the least wide. But the wide nozzle offered more control. More on that in a moment.
After discovering the max air velocity nozzle could cover the most ground, I used that to clear the driveway and sidewalk of leaves. And it made light work of that. Aside from the powerful clearing power, what I appreciated most was controlling the airflow by how hard I pressed down on the trigger. When blowing leaves straight down the mouth of the driveway, I could go full throttle, but when clearing sidewalks, I would use less power to ensure I didn’t blow leaves from the grass back onto the sidewalk. It gave me a lot of control.
Speaking of control, I used the narrow nozzle to clear the rest of the driveway. Towards the back of the driveway (away from the road), the driveway is narrow and borders the next-door neighbor’s house. I couldn’t use full power to blow the debris down to the mouth without blowing it into the neighbor’s property. The narrow nozzle combined with low power gave me precise control to move the loose leaves and debris down towards the mouth, where I could hit it with full power and get rid of it into the road.
Like the leaves, the Enhulk leaf blower made easy work of the pine needles in my driveway. I was more impressed with how it removed the pine needles from my yard. As you can see from the picture below, I used the leaf blower to clear a section of my yard. You can see how many pine needles there were and how clear it is now. That is about as good as it would have looked had I manually raked that section, yet this was a lot less work.
I did feel the extra weight from the leaf blower. I had to switch hands back and forth to rest my arms. But between clearing my dad’s driveway, my driveway, and the yard, I used the Enhulk leaf blower in various power stages for well over 20 minutes. And when I was done, I still had ⅖ battery life. Overall, I was impressed with the performance.
How does the Enhulk 58V 930 CFM Leaf Blower compare?
Compared to the Greenworks 80V leaf blower I reviewed earlier this year, the Enhulk has more blowing power but is about five pounds heavier. The Greenworks 80V has the same turbo and cruise control features and is about $50 cheaper. I was able to clear more debris more quickly with the Enhulk comparatively, but the two leaf blowers are similar in performance.
Even though the Husqvarna 125BVx is gas-powered, the Enhulk leaf blower still excels in air speeds at 170 MPH compared to the Enhulk’s 200 MPH. That’s impressive. You also don’t have to mess with the price of occasionally gassing up your leaf blower. That being said, the Husqvarna also has a suction setting. The Husqvarna 125BVx is available for roughly $10 cheaper than the Enhulk.
The Black and Decker LSWV36 is much lighter and less expensive but can’t compete with airspeed compared to the Enhulk. The 120 MPH compared to 200 MPH is a no contest. But comparing the two models, you’ll pay for the extra power.

How we tested the Enhulk 58V 930 CFM Leaf Blower
I tested the battery life by setting the cruise control on full throttle and timing how long it took the battery to drain. I also timed how long the dead battery took to recharge.
To test performance, I tested how much debris each nozzle removed in a single pass. Then, I removed leaves from a driveway and sidewalk using the maximum air velocity nozzle. I also switched to the narrow nozzle for more control and precision blowing. Finally, I tested its performance by removing pine needles from my driveway and yard using the maximum air velocity nozzle.
