Weed Eater WEB160 Review
The Weed Eater WEB160 is powered by a 7.5Amp electric blower to give it sufficient power to clear leaves. It is ideal for clearing dirt and debris from sidewalks, driveways and clearing up grass clipping.
It has been designed to be light and compact weighing in at just 4.5 pounds. This allows it to deliver power as well as ease of use.
- The blower is light in weight, so you won’t get tired lugging it around your yard. And the fact that it is electric means that it won’t deafen or burn you with exhaust gasses.
- Although the model is not as powerful as similar gas-powered models it is so much lighter and maneuverable. These two factors on their own more than make-up for the very slightly weaker air flow.
- Yet the air flow is powerful enough to deal with piles of wet leaves.
Some customers are not impressed by the power on offer from the weed eater blower and prefer to stick with more powerful gas blowers.
The WEB160 may not be as powerful as similar gas-powered blowers but it is so much lighter and maneuverable and these two factors on their own more than make-up for the slightly weaker air flow. It is lightweight but packs a powerful, focused “jet stream” of air that blasts across any area it is point towards.
“I was looking for an elecrtric blower that did not cost an arm and a leg. What I got was a blower that exceeded my expectations and was priced right. I use it to clear my deck of leaves, acorns, and small tree branches. It dose the job in minutes with more power than I sometimes need. If I had an issue with is product it would be that it dose not have a power cord.“

“I positively love this blower and I’m buying another as a gift for my daughter. It’s exactly what I wanted to keep my patio and patio furniture clean. It has fantastic power, At 160 mph I wouldn’t want more. It’s not terribly loud and just the right size. Stores well in my patio cushion cabinet. You won’t be sorry buying this blower. Oh and did I mention it’s very light and easy to handle!“

“This replaces a similar dollar store cheapo I used for 20+ years, until it slid off the roof. It’s light enough, small enough and powerful enough to clean out gutters and downspouts from the roof. It balances in your hand, doesn’t twist when turned on, an extension cord plugs directly into the back and a cord keeper prevents it from un-plugging if snagged on something. But the best thing about it is, it doesn’t have that incessant high pitched whine that all high speed blowers seem to have.“
