How to chose a power blower?

 

With the season change we see the tree leaves turning yellow, brown and going to the ground. Time to get the blower out of the shed and clean the grounds.

Having the correct leaf blower can improve the work time and what you do with the leaves. Some of the questions you should ask yourself before buying a power blower:

 

  • How big is your garden?
  • Do you have a lot of trees
  • How much power do you need?
  • Would you like to collect the leaves?
