There are various types of leaf blowers, including handheld and backpack models. The handheld blowers are divided into two groups: those with collection and those without. With a blower you can do much more than just move leaves: you can also clean up debris, grass clippings, hedge clippings etc.
Things to keep in mind when buying a blower:
- The machine should have a low vibration value to minimize vibrations from those parts of the machine that the user comes in contact with.
- The engine should be powerful and easy to start.
- Pay attention to air speed and air flow.
- If you choose a backpack blower, it should have a comfortable and load-reducing harness with hip belt and wide shoulder straps.
