If you have leaves in your lawn, driveway, walks or roof and garden gutters then chances are you need a leaf blower to relocate them. Not only will this process work quicker but it is also better for the environment. We have tested ten machines to find the best. leaf blowers that are battery operated continue to grow in popularity, and more models use a keyless start system.

Gas or Battery Powered
We never measured the run time for our handheld cordless leaf blowers until this test. Our gas-engine machines often ran for an hour or more on a single tank of fuel — sometimes even more than that. If you’re a homeowner who relies on your leaf blower for extended periods, rather than sporadic blasts of fall leaves from the curbside overperformer chargers to keep up with your lawn maintenance, then it might make sense to consider investing in cordless model. Gas-powered leaf blowers offer long run times, but they re useless if the battery dies.
Backpack or Handheld
By wearing a backpack leaf blower, the stress off your arm and wrist enables you to go on for much longer sessions; this can save you from being as fatigued at the end of it all. A backpack configuration also lets you stop blowing leaves to attend to something else in the yard without having to set down or turn off your device. These handheld models are much smaller machines and can easily be used in tight spaces.
So, which do you get?
Thicker, wet leaves need more leaf-moving power than dry or less sticky feces. If you only have a thin layer of dry leaves, a handheld or light-duty backpack will suffice. The best blower for deep leaves should depend on the height of the depth. If you need a blow machine to sweep the leaves or grass clippings from your driveway or sidewalk, then go for one with less capacity. You won t be moving them across pavement, which has significantly less friction than grass.
How We Tested
We put all of our blowers through the same tests to compare performance, one of which was an erosion test. To get an idea of how these machines work, we tested them on a few different surfaces: leaves in the grass and snow. We put our electric blowers through various tests to measure air speed too. We had to test the handheld leaf blowers by taking them into areas with a lot of air movement.
So for these, we primarily did outdoor testing at different heights and speeds, such as blowing across flat ground or going up against the breeze.
What We Learned: These models are typically designed to work best in a completely open space,
