NOTE: Clicking on the question will reveal the answer.
First and foremost, we didn’t start out to build a better leaf blower. We wanted to build a better way to clean your outdoor living areas. So we started from the ground up to build the best air-broom that we could make. Our patented construction puts the fan close to the ground where it is most effective and places the batteries in the slim handle to eliminate the awkward battery pack.
Sure you can, but that’s not what we were designing. The ZoomBroom is for those much more common tasks like cleaning off your deck, patio, steps and sidewalk where convenience and ease of use is more important than a huge amount of air flow and noise. A big, bulky leaf blower will move a lot more leaves than a ZoomBroom, but it is also a lot noisier, a lot heavier, and next to impossible to store.
The ZoomBroom Tornado weighs just slightly over 2 lbs., about the same weight as a push broom. It is nicely balanced so that it feels like it weighs even less. Any leaf blower or yard broom weighs in at over 6 lbs.!
The run time for the battery will depend on how you use it, but it will typically be more than 30 minutes. If you run it on standard speed only, it will last for up to 40 minutes. Using the Turbo-boost will reduce the run time. Our users have found that a typical cleaning chore takes less than 10 minutes, so there is plenty of battery life!
The ZoomBroom charges automatically in its storage stand or wall hanger. No battery to remove or cord to plug in. Just set it in and forget it! After a typical 10 minute use, it will be fully recharged in less than an hour.
The home version of the ZoomBroom, the Tornado, comes in five colors to match your décor. White, red, silver, pistachio, and aqua.
The ZoomBroom and its storage stations are NOT waterproof so they should not be stored or used where they are exposed to rain or water. We are working on a water proof model. Any battery powered equipment should be properly stored in an area that will be between 32 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit (0 to 27 Celsius).
Absolutely! The ZoomBroom is perfect for cleaning store entry ways, hotel porticos, restaurant patios, and manufacturing shipping areas. Let us know how you use your ZoomBroom!
The handle of the ZoomBroom is made from recyclable aluminum and the motor housing is made from durable ABS plastic. We have worked diligently to reduce the amount of plastic used in the ZoomBroom and it now contains less that 20% of the amount of plastic found it leaf blowers.
We can’t give away all of our competitive secrets, but we have a lot of additional features and models in development. Do you have an idea for an improvement or new use? Let us know about your suggestions.
