Lawn Leaf Blowers

We Live in a small quiet village in Western New York, surrounded by so many big trees. We have a small yard so it's not that difficult to take care of. When the fall season arrives, and the leaves turn those beautiful colors it's a breathtaking sight and so beautiful.

It's not long before the leaves fall to the ground, cover the lawn and clog the gutters. Last year my electric leaf blower burned up, I wasn't too disappointed when this happened as I've had it for many years.

It was time to find a new leaf blower so I began my search. I had to decide between electric, gas-powered, or Cordless. My first thought was, instead of dragging a couple of extension cords around the yard how about a new gas-powered leaf blower.

As luck would have it a friend of mine let me use his gas-powered leaf blower for a couple of days. As far as blowing leaves it worked very well. But, for me, I found it too heavy and hard to start. This was my opinion I'm sure many people love their gas-powered leaf blowers.

There are many cordless leaf blowers on the market. I wasn't thrilled with the reviews that I read on cordless. I think the cordless is great for blowing off sidewalks, patios, and decks. I just wasn't convinced that cordless would be good enough for the big job of the leaves.

I decided on a new electric Weed Eater Leaf Blower. Since my old one was the same brand and it served me well. It's lightweight, with an ergonomic handle for ease of handling, has an airspeed of 130 MPH, with low noise.

I couldn't be happier with my new leaf blower. I use it throughout the year to clean off my deck and to blow the leaves out of my rain gutters. I made my own extension attachment from some leftover downspout and an elbow. Since we live in a one-story home it's easy to clean the gutter from the ground.

I would recommend this leaf blower to anybody. There are other popular brands on the market. I find this one to be inexpensive with a five-star review.

  1. My husband uses our leaf blower and it is electric too. I have often thought the cord made it harder to use, but I never considered how heavy a gas powered blower would be. You certainly brought up an excellent point. I would take the cord over weight any day! Thank you for the insightful review Sam.

    1. Since I do have small yard I don't mind dragging the cord around. I was lucky to able to use the gas leaf blower to help make up my mind. Thanks!

  2. I've never had a leaf blower, but my grandson, who mows my lawn for me, bought a cordless one recently. He uses it to blow off my driveway and sidewalks after mowing, but for big jobs like leaves, his biggest complaint is it does not hold a charge long enough to finish the job. Your new electric leaf blower sounds like just the ticket for your lawn care needs. Thanks for this review, Sam.

    1. That is exactly why I didn't go with the cordless Pat. I agree they are perfect for sidewalks, driveways, decks and patios.

  3. I have never owned a leaf blower but I can see just how useful it would be. Thank you for the review of the different types. It is important to know aspects like weight to carry as although cordless is always attractive, I simply cannot carry a heavy machine for very long with my back issues. It sounds like the electric one you chose is a good one for your needs.

    1. For sure, the electric was the best fit for me. Although some people prefer the gas powered leaf blowers. Thanks!

  4. We live in New England on a heavily tree-lined street, so you can imagine how thick the leaves are on the ground around our house. Raking was a nightmare before we got our electric leaf blower. What a difference! Like you, my husband realized that a gas-powered blower would be too heavy for me to maneuver, and that a cordless blower wouldn't have enough juice to be up to the challenge. What an awesome gift this would make for someone who doesn't already own one!

    1. The gas powered is certainly too heavy for me and I don't mind dragging the cord around. Sounds like you have a lot of leaves to clean up!! Thanks!

  5. While I'm not a big fan of leaf blowers, I can see where they would be useful in a yard with lots of trees dropping their load. Electric would be my choice too, for all the reasons you listed, but most importantly the weight and strain on the back working with that weight. Now, I don't do that anymore on the 18th floor we don't get too many leaves.

    1. I don't know if there are any trees taller than the 18th floor Olivia. I can see why you don't get many leaves. Thank!

  6. Nice review Sam. I have both corded and cordless electric leaf blowers. Cordless works great for small jobs but corded obviously for longer duration. Gas blowers are more convenient than corded but noisy and require maintenance plus gas/oil and they can be difficult to start at times.

    1. Thanks Chris, I agree the cordless are just perfect for small jobs. I prefer the corded electric for lasting power.

  7. Sam, we have one, and it comes in very handy. Can't imagine trying to handle all these leaves without one. I call it the lawn Vacuum.
