I see that the battery in the blower is rated to run for an hour, mine on a good day doesn't run more than 20 minutes. Is there something wrong with my battery or the blower.

Paul,
You are going to get asked many questions such which blower do you have, which battery are you using, and what speed is it set. The rating for up to an hour are based upon running the unit at low speed.. In the real world nobody uses the blower that slow. I would say the 20 minutes is about right for normal real world conditions.

Yep, what Eric said. Some blowers run for as little as 10 minutes if you use them constantly at full power.

I run my blower on low all the time. I use I to clean out the garage, and low works great.. Good for an hour...

Anything but low would turn a garage into a raging dust storm! :-)

Until we know which model you own Paul, I will use the manual from the 530 CFM model for reference.  See below the approximate run time for this model:
