A blower is a great help for cleaning up leaves, debris, grass and hedge clippings. But what should you think about when buying a new leaf blower? Here are a few things to keep in mind before you buy one.
We have leaf blowers for all of your needs. If you know what you will use it for, we can help you pick the right one.
Is a handheld leaf blower the best to choose or a leaf blower with backpack?
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 debris, it is better to choose a lightweight, agile hand-held leaf blower.
If you are working for longer periods and with more material to blow, a backpack blower is the right choice. The backpack leaf blowers are divided into two categories, for general professional jobs and those even more demanding tasks.
Can I turn the leaf blower into a vacuum cleaner?
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 Husqvarna120iBV blower with a vacuum kit included. Check out Husqvarna accessory vacuum kit designed specifically for the leaf blowers.
Which power source is right for my blower: battery or petrol?
Modern battery blowers are lightweight, strong, remarkably silent and nearly vibration-free. Some extra batteries or a backpack battery allow you to work a full day. Battery powered leaf blowers are best for indoor jobs, or when you are working in noise-sensitive areas. 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.
