When the hot days of summer are over, you know you are in for a messy clean up if you have trees on your property.
Each year, over 76,000 Americans are injured while raking leaves. The use of many different muscles and awkward movements can cause a lot of strain. Using a leaf blower instead of a rake will not only save you from injury but will save you time.
With all of the sizes and types of leaf blowers available, how do you choose the one that’s best for you and your property?
Here is the ultimate guide on how to choose the best leaf blower for your needs.
Different Types of Leaf Blowers
Handheld Gas Leaf Blower
If you have a medium-sized property with lots of trees then a handheld gas leaf blower is the best choice for you. The gas-powered leaf blower has the benefits of working anywhere, which can add to convenience of only needing one blower. Our Stihl handheld blowers are easy to start and easy to use.
Backpack Gas Powered Leaf Blower
Properties with more acreage would benefit from a backpack leaf blower. Backpack blowers have a huge “wow” factor when it comes to the number of leaves it can blow for the size that it is. Nowadays, there are very ergonomic friendly designs and very comfortable to wear for longer periods of time.
This type of leaf blower can also come in a hybrid version or four cycle, which makes it much less pollutant and much quieter. The main thing you want to look for in this type is vibration reduction, which can be a well-padded exterior, as well as a space for air circulation.
We recommend the powerful BR 450 with multi-function control handle and anti-vibration system.
Electric Leaf Blower
If you have a smaller property and need some assistance handling the leaves on your lot, this is where the heavy-duty electric leaf blower like the Stihl BGE 71 comes in handy. If you can handle an electric cord, then opting for this blower may be the best bang for your buck in terms of durability and convenience.
With an optional kit, you can convert your electric blower into a leaf vacuum and gutter cleaner. The electric leaf blower is the best bang for your buck in terms of convenience on a small property.
