Bosch ALB 36 LI 36v Cordless Garden Leaf Blower
Battery Voltage Explained
A tool with a higher voltage than another is a bit like choosing an engine in a car, the higher voltage will generally mean higher power & performance. As with cars though a bigger engine does not always translate to better performance so it is important to compare the specifications of tools at different voltages between different manufacturers.
Battery AH Explained
The best way to describe battery amp hour is that this is effectively the size of your fuel tank, the more amp hours your battery has then the longer the battery will last between charges. More amp hours does not increase the power of a given tool.
There are three main types of leaf blowers – Petrol, corded electric and cordless electric. As a general rule, Petrol blowers offer the most power at the expense of being heavier and noisier and than their electric counterparts, and typically come at a higher price.
Electric blowers are much quieter and more suitable for residential areas, and are usually powered by either lithium ion battery packs, or mains electricity.
Corded variants are cheaper to manufacture as they don’t require batteries or chargers, though their obvious limitation is the length of cord they are attached to.
Cordless variants offer much more freedom, though the amount of time they can be used for is dependent on the charge in their batteries. Higher amp-hour (ah) batteries will offer the most runtime, while higher voltage machines will provide more power.
Leaf blowers can also be effective at clearing snow, dust and dirt; however please bear in mind they are not designed to shift piles of wet leaves and much better results can be obtained by waiting for these to dry out first.

Product aside was very pleased with the service / efficiency of Tooled Up (the seller)
Great product, and excellent service from TooledUp
very light and easy to use. Battery last long enough to do all of the garden and paths. Very powerful blower for the money and good value.
Great machine and very impressed with Tooled up
This was purchased as a Christmas present. We had recently purchased the same for ourselves and are very pleased with it's performance, easy to use with variable speeds ideal for wet leaves. Light to handle - our old one is very heavy and with a cord so no more having to deal with moving plug for different areas. We have a 200ft garden with lots of large trees (60ft + sycamores) so we purchased another battery so one can charge whilst using one.
Already had 2 Batteries from other Bosch tools that were compatible with this so that saved on cost. Noticeable that the run time for the older battery (1.3li) was roughly half that of the newer battery (2.6li). Major plus is the weight of the unit which is very light making is easy to use.
Excellent machine. Tooled-up.com were VERY efficient, delivery next day as promised - just as good as Amazon, only cheaper! Only downside, the blower uses up the battery quite quickly, I’ve got two batteries so not a problem for me.
Very pleased with the product. It’s light and easy to handled. Just need it for blowing leaves into a pile ready to pick up for the recycle bin. Had a blower/vacuum one before but found it too heavy
Great item and very promptly delivered.
Excellent leaf blower, especially if you already have a Bosch electric lawn mower. Already owning a Bosch Rotak LI lawn mower meant I could buy this blower without the battery, saving more than half its cost. Having a 36v battery it's a powerful device and makes an impressive wind, the strength of which is easily controlled by a thumb dial. I ordered this leaf blower for a particular task but have since found myself using it for lots of other things around the garden.
Just what I expected
The freedom of cordless and the fact that it's so well balanced means leaf blowing is a joy. it takes a bit of practise to get the leaves into a neat pile without them going everywhere but where you want them, and it struggles a bit with really wet leaves but, overall, beats a broom every time! come on autumn!
Very pleased with this purchase. i have the bosch cordless lawn mower so it is great that i can use the same battery and charger for the garden blower. first time i have used a cordless garden blower - so much easier to get out and use without plugging in! So far it has been very efficient with dry and wet leaves.
Already had the hedge cutter, which is wonderful, so did not need another battery. this blower is amazing. very light and easy to use. has just as much power as my previous petrol model. cleared an 90 yard long gravel drive of mountains of wet oak leaves and twigs in under ten minutes. of course it is all down to the battery which accounts for most of the cost but the 36 volt is worth every penny. very impressed with the speed of delivery and the tracking information. a good company to deal with.
Very good product. Powerful with its 36v battery yet quiet.
Customer Questions & Answers
Q : I currently have a Bosch AHS 54 -20Li hedge trimmer with an AL 3640 CV 36 volt battery charger. Could I use this battery and charger on the leaf blower?
A : Hi Sue, yes the AHS 54-20 LI and the ALB 36 LI both use the same battery system so your existing equipment will be compatible
Q : Does this blower come with the battery and charger (included in the £97 price?)
A : Hi there, this product starts at £97.95 for the bare tool and is available with a variety of different battery and charger options. If you choose which version you want from the drop down menu it will show you the price for each kit.
Q : Thank you for you'r prompt reply to my problem about my bosch 2.6 premium battery. It is a lithium ion battery year 2011in good conditionand the nos at the bottom of battery are s1011202011 thank you once again Nigel
A : Ah OK, after a bit more searching I think I've found your battery - looks like the 36v 2.6ah Premium model (with a red stripe) was supplied with the Rotak 43 LI mowers and the AKE 30 LI chainsaw back in 2011 - these days the garden batteries have a green stripe but these green batteries are what the Rotak 43 LI (which has remained in production) uses today - so, based on this information, yes - it is compatible.
Q : I have an old 36v 2.6ah premium bosch battery off an cordless chainsaw. will it fit the ALB36v cordless leaf blower Thank's
A : Hi Nigel, I'm afraid I'm not sure exactly what type of battery you have but to work in this blower it would need to be a Bosch Genuine Garden range 36v lithium ion battery (the 2.6ah model is on our site under product code 21013041 if you want to compare) - bear in mind Bosch Professional 36v batteries for the Blue range are not designed for use in garden tools like the ALB36V, and older NiCAD or NiMH batteries will not work either
Q : I recently purchased a lawn mower Bosch 32 LI cordless rotary. Is the battery compatible with the leaf blower Alb 36 LI 36v cordless leaf blower?
A : Hi there - yes, absolutely. These models both use the same type of battery (which is also compatible with the ADVANCEDCUT 36v grass trimmer and the ADVANCEDHEDGECUT 36v hedge trimmer)
A : (sorry ADVANCEDGRASSCUT is the model of grass trimmer - not the ADVANCEDCUT which is an 18v Nanoblade saw)
