FAQ

A leaf blower is powered by an engine that sits inside the leaf blower, and it drives in air which is then carried out through the nozzle of the leaf blower at a high pressure. This allows you to move leaves from the lawn or driveway.

Usually, gasoline-powered leaf blowers have a two-stroke engine, which means you should choose oil-mixed fuel. Many recommend alkylate gasoline. However, you should read the manual for your particular model to see what kind applies to your particular leaf blower.

The price of leaf blowers varies depending on the power source, engine strength and size. You will find simpler models for around 30–40 £. If you are going to have a slightly more powerful model, you will have to pay a bit more. Powerful fuel-driven models are around 250 £.

Three tips for buying a leaf blower

Leaf blowers, like many other garden machines, come in three different forms: battery-powered, electricity-powered, and fuel-powered.

  • Battery-powered leaf blower. Suitable for small gardens and those who do not wish to blow large amounts of wet leaves. The battery-powered leaf blower is best suited for dry piles of leaves, or just occasional damp leaves.

  • Electric. An electric leaf blower is a good choice for those who want a powerful leaf blower but want to avoid the disadvantages of a petrol-powered one. The price of an electric leaf blower is an advantage. However, it is important to remember that the garden cannot be full of things and hard to access, as you need to take the extension cord into account when working.

  • Petrol-powered. Both powerful and mobile. The disadvantages include things such as exhaust fumes/worse working environments, loud noises, and more maintenance.

Some leaf blowers come with controls, settings, and functions that allow you to do other things than just blowing leaves. For example, if you want to blow at a lower power to protect sensitive flowerbeds, or at maximum power to blow away gravel, you need to choose a leaf blower that offers this.

Even though a tidy garden is worth a lot, it may not be worth the moans from your neighbour. For this purpose, you should consider how loud your leaf blower can be. The design, type of fuel used, and size of the engine all affect the noise levels. Consider these features and read reviews comparing the noise levels. When you do the blowing, you should always wear hearing protection.
