Engine powered leaf blowers are an easy way to deal with fallen leaves and grass clippings. They can be either gas or electric powered and come in a variety of sizes and weights. Some can also be used as vacuums. The following should be considered when buying a power leaf blower:
  • Electric models are the quietest and lightest weight. They are usually the least expensive ($30 to $100) but are also the least powerful. They do not give off noxious fumes, but since they must be plugged in to an electrical outlet, their range is limited by the length of an extension cord, making them sometimes hard to use in larger yards.
  • Handheld gas models are the smallest but are the least powerful of the gas types. They are the least expensive ($70 to $200) and are more suitable for smaller yards.
  • Backpack gas blowers are more powerful and can handle large areas without the nuisance of an electric cord, but they can weigh up to 20 pounds, making them too heavy for some users. They cost between $300 and $450.
  • The most powerful leaf blowers are wheeled machines. They can weigh up to 125 pounds and cost up to $1000. These models are very popular with professional landscapers and those with heavily wooded large lots.
Remember to check local ordinances when using engine powered leaf blowers. Some communities restrict the hours or length of use because of the annoying noise they produce.
