Save Time With a Handheld Leaf Blower

When you save time in a busy schedule, it is a big deal, and the small portable leaf blower will certainly save a lot of time in any place where you need to sweep debris outside. Although there are reports of using blowers to clean up the room.

In the 1970s, leaf blowers appeared on the scene. Approximately 75,000 units were sold in 1985 and 4,643,000 noisy small blow molding machines were sold in 2010. These blow molding machines made the tedious cleaning job easy.

The blower is nothing more than a portable small turbofan, powered by an electric or gas engine, generating airflow through ducts. When pointing in the direction of loose debris (such as grass clippings, leaves, or other yard debris), forced air will easily move unwanted materials to areas that are easier and faster to handle.

Electric leaf blowers have a number of attractive features, mainly because they are easy to use. All it takes to start is an extension cord and a switch. There’s no need to store and mix flammable fuels and additives, and there’s no need for a starting line, which can be frustrating when multiple pulls are needed to start. Electric variants deliver 250 CFM of air through the tube, and some can also adjust the airflow for different material movements.

Besides being easy to use, the most attractive aspect of electric blowers is cost. They are usually between $40 and $150 cheaper than gasoline-powered competitors. In addition to the initial cost savings, the savings in fuel and engine maintenance costs will mean lower operating costs in the long run. The last advantage is that they do not emit any odor and are quieter than most gas blowers.

If you don’t like being tied to outlets and power cords, a gas blower is for you. In many applications it is not feasible to use a wired blower with distance as the deciding factor. There may be no outlets nearby or 100 feet away as it takes too many power cords to work, which is impractical.

Gas blowers are more powerful than electric blowers and require more maintenance, but if they are properly maintained, they usually last longer. Today, most are equipped with two-stroke overhead valve (OHV) engines, which have better fuel economy, longer life, and more power. These modern engines are of very good quality and if they meet the minimum maintenance standards, they will last for years.

The choice of leaf blower type depends on personal circumstances and preferences. For any homeowner’s maintenance warehouse, these two leaf blowers can be very valuable tools as they can indeed make any yard look neat and clean easier and faster than before.
