Best Gas Leaf Blower Reviews 2016
If you need to clear or move debris such as leaves in your garden, a leaf blower is the ideal gardening tool.
I have selected 4 of the most popular new leaf blowers and shortly reviewed them in best gas leaf blower. These products differ in terms of price, power and features.
Some leaf blowers can suck in twigs and leaves, chop them up and store them in an attached bag.
When buying a leaf blower there are a few points to keep in mind:
- The size of the area that you will be maintaining with the leaf blower.
- The type, especially the weight of the material you will be blowing.
- Your physical strength.
- The sensitivity of your neighbors to noise.
- The amount of money you are willing to spend.
Hitachi RB24EAP 23.9cc 2 Stroke 170 MPH Gas Powered Handheld Blower
This leaf blower is not only light in weight but it is also very quiet, making it a real pleasure to use in the garden. It is easy to start and has respectable power for such a light machine (only 8.6 lbs). This power is very handy on the heavier jobs that it may need to do. I found the Hitachi RB24EAP to be well balanced which helps to reduce fatigue, quite a bit.
The Hitachi blower comes with the usual 7 year warranty, which means that Hitachi have built a machine that is meant to last for years.
The Hitachi RB24EAP uses 89 octane grade petrol and a 50 to 1 oil mix
A lot of people who have used this machine have a little gripe about the hand trigger control, but otherwise most people think that Hitachi have produced a very good garden tool.
Tanaka TBL-7800R 65cc 4-2/7 HP 2-Stroke Backpack Blower
Tanaka has come up with a light weight (considering the power and design) backpack leaf blower that really makes light work of any job that needs to done around a garden. It comes ready to use, only the tubes and throttle body need to be installed and it can be used in the garden straight away. Unlike many blowers this one is simple to start and its reliability unquestionable.
Compared to the other blowers here this one has double the power. Unfortunately it is also considerably more expensive. When you look at the weight it's 22.6 lbs. (10.2 kg), so for the stronger user.
Every task that it is asked to perform will be done effectively and very quickly saving hours of work around a garden during the autumn months.
It is a real value for money garden tool that any serious gardener could not do without. All those who have invested in this machine have found it to be one of the best that they have ever used and have no complaints about their purchase.
Husqvarna 125BVx 28cc 2-Cycle Gas Powered 170 MPH Blower
Husqvarna know their stuff and produce some of the best garden machines that can be found on the market today. This model is no exception and stands up well when compared to similar models. Like most of the products that Husqvarna produce this model runs very smoothly.
The Husqvarna 125BVx is capable of both blowing and vacuuming leaves and twigs. It has a large collection bag which is extremely easy to empty when needed, but it is really big and will take up to 20 gallons.
Which leaf blower brand would you recommend?
Weed Eater FB25 25cc 2 Stroke Gas Powered 170 MPH Blower
This Weed Eater is a cheap and simple model.
The Weed Eater FB25 is light but this has a little bit of a down side, as it can feel a little clumsy when used as a blower. This is because it flexes a little too much which makes it appear to vibrate.
The Weed Eater FB25 does not have the power of some of the other models, that can be found on the market and lacks a speed trigger, which some people have pointed out to be a little annoying. But the fact that it is so light to use makes it definitely worth considering when deciding to upgrade a blower, especially if the weight of the machine is an important factor for the user.
