What are you waiting for? Put down the push broom and that smaller broom for the crevices. It’s time to pick up the most fun to use of the garden implements – the leaf blower. Leaf blowers powerfully send leaves and landscaping debris wherever you want.
How is a leaf blower like a Porsche? They both have turbochargers. This mighty leaf blower can even blow snow.We love how powerful it is. The engine is made of long-lasting, low-energy using copper. The rubber handle is comfy, even when holding it on high speed until the battery runs out, which is about 15 minutes. It’ll go for about half an hour at low speed. Low is great for cleaning the bed on the truck and the leaves out of the petunias.
The Greenworks model solves one of the few problems of using a leaf blower – not being able to get tight corners. The included 2.0 amp battery and charger powers more than 50 Greenworks products. The strong 40-volt battery can run long enough to clear 1⁄4 acre of landscaping. The variable speed mower goes from gentle to strong with an astonishing 150 mph of air force. (Think how much wind you feel when you put your hand out the window going down the highway at 65.) We love how this leaf blower packs a lot of wind force that is sure to get your job done quickly and thoroughly.
A garden workhorse
We love how this product is actually three tools – blower, mulcher, and vacuum all in one gardening instrument. No need to swap tools, just switch the switch from blower to vacuum – it’s ultra convenient and efficient. It gets better because there is a mulcher too. A strong metal impeller – just like the kind in an engine – cuts the leaves in two stages. The chopped leaves are at an 18:1 ratio, meaning that 18 entire bags of leaves can be mulched into just one bag of mulched leaves. Gets the job done quickly and completely and gets you back to enjoying your weekend sooner.
This leaf blower has a turbo button, so it really goes to 11. It’s fun to get a little extra power where and when you need it. Just rotate the variable speed dial to increase or decrease the powerful fan motor. Speaking of power, the industry-leading, long battery life powers the leaf blower for over 75 minutes. It only weighs a little over 7 pounds.
By changing the pressure on the trigger, you can speed up or slow down the airflow, making this leaf blower easy to use. The fan motor construction provides lots of power but still stays quiet. The high-tech brushless motor (running on a DC current from an inverter) gives a long motor life, and a long battery life too – almost an hour and a half. The removable concentrator gives your garden a professional finish.
