3 Things About Leaf Blowers You Should Know

Whether professionals or amateurs, today’s gardener and gardener needs leaf blowers to keep the landscape and plant beds beautiful. They are available in two types, electric blower or gas blower. Electric blowers are more convenient and physically easier to use and handle. Gas blowers have more power for large-scale operations, but are heavier and require users to have more power.

1. Weight

When you pick up a garden tool and hold it in your hand, the first thing you will notice is the weight. This is something to consider before buying a fan. Different models will be heavier than others. Electric blowers range from just over 6 pounds for the small Weeder model to just over 15 pounds for the larger Black and Decker models. The latter can be converted into a leaf vacuum for cleaning leaves and other debris.

2. Power

Airspeed and CFM rating are also factors to consider. Air speeds range from 160 mph from the smaller Weedeater blower to 240 mph from 385 cfm from the more powerful Black and Decker electric blower. The greater the cfm, the faster the wind speed and the greater the blower’s power. Higher airspeed and higher cfm also make them harder to use. All of these airspeeds push you, making them harder to grab and harder to press on your wrists and shoulders.

3. Ease of Use

The electric blower is easy to use, no need to pull a rope, no need to worry about the gas and oil mixture, and there is no loud engine exhaust noise, and the noise is lower. However, they are limited to the length of a 30-foot extension cord from your home or the nearest 120-volt outlet.
