The Type of Leaf Blower that You Should Buy This Autumn

Autumn is here again, and leaves will be falling one by one to the ground. Our driveways and lawns will be filled by these leaves. And our roofs, they will be covered with them too.

Autumn is the time of the year when leaf blowers are very much in demand for clearing our outdoors, roofs, and even our patios from the fallen leaves. Without them, getting our driveways, roads, parks, and yards will surely be a very tedious task to accomplish. With the volume of leaves from all the trees, a leaf blower is undoubtedly the best solution. But which one?

Here are some tips to consider on what type of leaf blower you should by during this time of the year.

A Wheeled Leaf Blower Is Best for the Season

A leaf blower can be classified as a handheld, backpack, or wheeled. The classifications of a leaf blower are relative to the carrying capacity of the leaf blower.

 
Obviously, the wheeled leaf blower will be the preferred type to clear parks, roads, and driveways. Because of the volume of fallen leaves, the large area to be cleaned, and the heavy weight of the machine, only professionals should use this kind of leaf blower.

For leaves that entered our patios, garage, and pool areas, using the backpack type is recommended, while those leaves that found their way on gutters can be removed with the use of handheld leaf blowers with an attachment on its nozzle.

Gas-powered Is Preferred for Mass Clean Up

Leaf blowers can either be powered by gas, battery, or electricity. Most wheeled air blowers are gas-powered because they are mostly operated on public lands such as highways and parks. For mass clean-up drives during autumn, this kind of leaf blowers are used.

The electricity-powered or corded leaf blowers are used in areas near homes because of the distance, and their use outdoors should be with much precaution because of electric shock. Battery-operated leaf blowers are for small volume only and shorter duration only.

parkConsider the Noise

Autumn may be the saving element of why leaf blowers should not be outlawed. In some states, the use of blowers is under question because of its noise production. Apparently, it is the gas-powered wheeled type that produces the loudest noise. But obviously also, this type is the most useful during autumn. But without the law yet in most states, autumn, this year, is easier to survive with the gas-powered, wheeled type leaf blower.
