Amazon reviewers love it!
"This is the best blower/vac that I have found," says an Amazon reviewer. "This model has a variable speed for picking up leaves in the rocks without sucking up the rocks. The blower attachment with the wiggle front is the best for dislodging leaves and debris where others only use straight air. The metal impeller is much better than previous models that used plastic. These are well built and my previous ones have lasted a long time with much use. This is the best model but the most expensive. Amazon had the best price for this model." Check out these 12 brilliant uses for your leaf blower.
Husqvarna 2-Cycle Handheld Leaf Blower
Ideal for professional landscape contractors as well as homeowners, this Husqvarna gas-powered handheld blower features an ergonomic design the manufacturer calls "state-of-the-art." This blower also comes with a flare nozzle for higher air speed and a Vac-Kit for vacuuming/mulching lawn debris.
"If I could give this blower 10 stars it would not be enough," says an Amazon reviewer. "I have had 2 other blower/vacs in the last 4 years and they seem to last a couple of years and then they don't run right anymore. The Husqvarna is quieter, doesn't vibrate as much and starts on the 2nd pull. It comes with a sling to put over your shoulder so you don't have to carry it."
Worx Corded Leaf Blower
This Worx leaf blower features turbine fan technology for forceful, high-capacity air volume that's up to twice as fast as professional gas blowers. The dynamic airflow design and Hyper-Stream nozzle deliver maximum performance. This blower also features a power cord retainer for hassle-free leaf blowing.
"Amazing blower!!" says an Amazon reviewer. "I found this online after getting tired of having to constantly recharge the battery of a cordless Ego model that cost over $180. Upon reading about the 600cfm and seeing a YouTube video of a brick being blown across a smooth surface, I was sold on this particular Worx model.
"With a big yard, I do switch hands every now and then since my arms can get fatigued from handling the sheer power of this thing. Medium speed is plenty, but it's nice to have the higher setting for tougher jobs." Take a few minutes to read the following tips to save yourself hours of work during fall.
Greenworks Variable-Speed Cordless Blower
This Greenworks leaf blower is a lightweight tool that makes for easier control. The GMAX 40-volt lithium ion battery provides more power and longer run time, while the variable-speed motor delivers a maximum air speed of 150 mph.
"This worked much better than expected," says an Amazon reviewer. "I like the adjustable speed and freedom of a cordless design. I was able to blow off the front driveway, front sidewalks, 2 side door porches, the back sidewalks and the back patio in 10 minutes... Used to take an hour because of the extension cords with my old blower. I have more control with the GreenWorks blower over where the debris is blown/easier clean up."

Super intuitive and easy to adjust. The control handle itself is also really easy to adjust to your liking. You can move it toward or away from yourself, left/right, and change the wrist angle."

"What an amazing blower!" says an Amazon reviewer. "I purchased the Poulan Pro 48cc. backpack blower a few weeks ago to clear the leaves and mixed debris in my horse pastures in order for the grass to grow. Not only does this blower do an amazing job with leaves, it also clears old piles of manure, hickory nuts and compacted and half rotting clumps of stuff in low-lying areas like a dream. This is the 2nd backpack blower that I have owned yet the first Poulan Pro product... I will now never purchase another brand."

"OK, so I usually don't hand out many 5 star reviews, but this one gets it," says an Amazon reviewer. "Plenty of power to blow the leaves/pine needles/acorns off my lawn. Even at half power it is plenty to clean the debris. This cut my time in half. I didn't have to stop to fill up the gas tank, then have the thing flood trying to pull start it, just plug it in and go.' Here are the 10 things you should know before buying a battery-powered yard tool.
DeWalt Brushless, Cordless Blower
This blower has variable trigger and speed lock, includes a lithium ion battery and charger, and a brushless motor that maximizes efficiency and durability.
"I love having a cordless blower so I can roam around our property without hassling with a cord," says an Amazon reviewer. "I REALLY like the speed control on this blower... very sensitive, and I like being able to just squeeze the trigger a little to blow debris away from sensitive areas like flower beds, etc. without blowing the dirt everywhere with too much air.
"The large blow tube is nice, because it puts out a large wide column of air at a max of 90 MPH - which is plenty unless I'm blowing off huge quantities of fallen leaves in the spring or fall that require the big Stihl backpack blower. I also really like the stand that allows me to set the blower down and have it upright and ready to pick up again." Save money and back strain by renting a boom lift, trencher, power posthole digger, stump grinder brush cutter and other big tools that solve big problems.
Sun Joe Electric Leaf Blower
If you're looking for a blower for smaller tasks, this Sun Joe leaf blower will do the trick. It features a 6-amp motor, ideal for light-duty household applications such as sweeping a porch, patio or deck.
"I have a townhouse condo with a patio, small garden area and a two car garage," says an Amazon reviewer. "This was absolutely perfect for the both as it is powerful and inexpensive. It cleared the leaves in the bushes and all the dirt and leaves off the patio. I wanted to put my plants in for the summer and not wait for the landscapers to get around to it so I decided to buy it. Also, it cleans the patio in two minutes flat. It also cleared my garage floor in minutes. I told my wife she could use it for a hair dryer with its 155 MPH winds (at the nozzle exit), but she didn't think it was too funny." When a small engine won't start, the usual suspects are bad gasoline, a corroded or plugged carburetor, or a bad ignition coil.

While lightweight and easy-to-use at just 4.6 pounds, this Toro leaf blower can generate a powerful air speed of 160 mph. It also has 2-speed air control for improved versatility. This handheld blower is great for clearing leaves and debris from sidewalks, decks and driveways.
"I was looking for something today in my purchase history and had to come back and write a short review on this product. I bought it in 2009 and it is now 2016 and I still have this blower and it still works," says an Amazon reviewer. "It even got left outside once in a Rubbermaid tote that filled up with water and it sat soaking in that water for a few days in a bad rainstorm before I noticed it. I let it dry out for a month and guess what? It still works. It is loud, like a leaf type blower will be. But I love, and have always loved, how it is electric. I cannot start gas anything. I have a bad neck and shoulder so I need to be able to plug things or have them cordless for ease. So if you want a good dependable blower that will last for years to come, this is it." These are the best leaf guard gutters for your home.
