The important thing to remember when buying a blower is what it will be used for. If you are using it for shorter periods of time and smaller amounts of debris, it is better to choose a light-weight, agile hand-held leaf blower like the Husqvarna 125B. If you are working for longer periods and with more material to blow, a backpack blower is better.
The backpack blowers are divided into two categories, for general professional jobs and those even more demanding tasks. The most powerful blower is the Husqvarna 580BTS, which has a filtered air intake for longer operating time and trouble-free use.
A blower can also be turned into a vacuum cleaner to suck grass, clippings and leaves from the ground. It is especially useful in places where you don’t want to blow debris around, for example around a pond, or your parked car. The Husqvarna 125BVx comes with a vacuum kit included.
Modern battery blowers are light-weight, strong, remarkably silent and nearly vibration- free. All Husqvarna products use the same type of charger and charging a 4.2 Ah battery takes 30-50 minutes. Some extra batteries or a backpack battery allow you to work a full day. Battery blowers are perfect for indoor jobs, or when you are working in noise-sensitive areas, such as hospitals, schools and city parks. If you are doing heavier work, like moving a lot of wet leaves, we recommend that you consider a petrol backpack blower, since it is more appropriate for that task.
