Using Leaf Blower Ratings to Choose a Backpack Leaf Blower

Blower reviews can help you choose the back blower that suits your needs. There are technical reviews for the physics of how these tools work, and there are others that are more like the opinions of people who have already bought the particular leaf pavilion you are viewing. Both types are important, but it’s equally important to understand what each type means and how they apply to your choices. This article assumes that you have decided to choose the backpack version rather than the handheld or push type.

There are two types of backpack blowers. Some are just blowing, others can blow and vacuum as well. You must first decide which type suits your needs. In terms of the work to be performed, each type has its advantages. The blazer-only type design is simpler and there are fewer accessories to worry about. They push leaves and debris around, and you can blast them to the borders of your country to keep them away, or pile them up in a heap, which can then be collected and processed later. Those with a vacuum function should have a bag attachment to catch the leaves when they are vacuumed. Compared to simpler blazers, this pocket must be emptied when full and also restricts your freedom of movement. You have to decide whether it is easier to move the leaves after they have piled up or continue to empty the bag.

There are 2 main measurements used to describe the ability of the blower to complete its work. The first is the airspeed produced in miles per hour, and the second is the airflow measured in cubic feet per minute or CFM. The higher the airspeed, the bigger and stickier the items that can be moved by blowing. Machines with high winds are more likely to move large wet leaves, which can be an advantage depending on the type of work you have to do. The high airspeed also means that more distant debris can also be moved. CFM measurement can be used to determine vacuum pump power. The higher the machine’s CFM, the more likely it will pick up larger objects instead of leaving them on the ground.
