Without a leaf blower garden work is tough, tiring, and time consuming. Leaves, garden waste, pine needles, dirt, and other debris gathers neatly and quickly with the help of a leaf blower. For larger garden areas, a gas blower is an ideal choice, as there is no limit to the distance covered.


Urban homes, smaller gardens, and driveways are the perfect areas to use an electric blower, as it is quiet and powerful, but requires a plug.

About Leaf Blowers

Leaf blowers are an ideal way to clear your garden of unwanted debris. They are powered by a motor which blows air out through a large nozzle to remove leaves and other garden waste. Leaf blowers are easy to use and are usually a hand held device. However, some models that are not so self contained consist of a unit that is worn on the user's back and a wand that is held in the hand. The self contained versions are much easier to use, especially if you intend to be using it for long period of time. Models are also available which suck up some leaves such as leaves and little twigs using a vacuum facility. Small debris like this can then be shredded and sucked into a waste bag. Leaf blowers come in a wide range of models but the biggest difference is probably the way in which they are fuelled. Some leaf blowers are powered by electricity, while others are petrol powered. Electric leaf blowers are much more economical and can easily be recharged. They also have the added benefit of being much easier to handle because they do not possess the added weight of fuel storage. Leaf blowers were first invented in the 1950s by Dom Quinto. They are extremely popular in the United States of America but have rapidly gained popularity all over the world. A leaf blower is an extremely useful piece of gardening equipment which can be used all year round to keep your garden looking tidy and preened to perfection.
