As fall is rapidly approaching once again you will soon need to get rid of all those leaves around your home. A proper leaf blower is an extremely important and helpful tool to perform this task. You can save a considerable amount of time and can easily complete the task if you have a good leaf blower. There are several things to consider when you want to purchase a new leaf blower to end up with a truly good one.

The very first thing you should do is to settle on your available budget. The price of a leaf blower can greatly vary, from $20 to up to $1000. You need to consider the size of your lawn along with the amount of leaves you need to get rid off and also the amount of money you are willing to spend on it. In the case of a smaller lawn with only a few trees, there is no need whatsoever to spend hundreds of dollars on such a machine. On the other hand, if you prefer to take care of things yourself and have a larger lawn with numerous trees, you should consider the purchase of a professional grade blower.

Along with the amount of money allocated to the purchase of a leaf blower, another important aspect of the purchasing process is the blower’s power source. You have three types of power sources at your disposal: gas powered, electric and battery powered. Obviously, each of them has their own advantages and disadvantages.

Generally, gas powered machines are the most powerful leaf blowers. Gas powered leaf blowers can be classified into three types: handheld, backpack and walk behind. The most common and popular type is the handheld type and it is the preferred machine of most homeowners. The backpack leaf blowers are equally used by simple homeowners and lawn professionals alike. On the other hand, walk behind blowers are only for commercial use and are the most expensive ones. Gas blowers however have a major disadvantage as they require plenty of maintenance.

Usually, electric leaf blowers are the cheapest models. They are attached to an extension cord. The main advantages of an electric blower are the fact that they can be easily stored, are lightweight and require minimum maintenance. Still, keep in mind that they are not as powerful as their gas powered counterparts and their use depends on the length of the extension cord.

Battery (rechargeable) powered leaf blowers are similar to electric leaf blowers. These blowers can be easily stored and have low maintenance needs. They are also just as powerful for the same price. Compared to electric blowers, battery powered machines are not limited in any way by an extension cord. However, they are limited by the life of the batteries.
