Important factors to consider when buying a leaf blower

  • Noise – leaf blower noise-levels are reported by decibel ratings. Make sure the leaf blower meets noise compliance rules in the cities of Los Gatos, Los Altos, City of Saratoga, Palo Alto, Burlingame, Town of Portola Valley, San Mateo, Menlo Park, Cupertino, and the City of Oakland.
  • Leaf Blower Power – measured in CFMs (cubic feet per minute) and an important factor when considering the size of the yard and frequency of usage.

  • Gas vs. Battery Powered – innovations in lithium-ion battery technology from STIHL, EGO, Husqvarna and Makita allow battery leaf blowers to perform with the power output of mid-sized gas-powered blowers. Battery-powered blowers are easy to start and use, lightweight, low noise and eliminate the hassle of dealing with gas and oil.

  • Weight and Comfort – handheld leaf blowers are lightweight and easy to use for homeowner usage and quick cleaning jobs by professional landscapers.
