A Guide to Buying the Right Leaf Blower, Monroe, Connecticut

While moving leaves and debris might seem like a basic concept, there are numerous leaf blower models on the market today. Each type incorporates different features, which allow for a variety of light and heavy-duty applications. If you need a new blower but don’t know how to choose the right model, L & R Power Equipment of Monroe, CT, has you covered. 

Here, they offer a rundown on the two main types of leaf blowers, as well as their most relevant features.

Electric Blowers

These light, quiet models are relatively low-maintenance compared to their gas-powered counterparts. Plus, they’re easier to start up. You can use electric blowers for most residential applications, such as cleaning off driveways and patios. Heavy-duty varieties can even be used to clean up big yards. If you want a blower from the electric category, you can choose from corded or cordless varieties. While the former is limited by cord length, they offer steady power. Cordless blowers are more mobile but require periodic charging.

Gas-Powered Blowers

blowerNeed more power? If you’re a professional landscaper or contractor, you’ll want to invest in a gas-powered leaf blower. These offer excellent run times and can blow through massive properties without running out of fuel. Consider a gas-powered model if you’ll be using your equipment frequently or for hours at a time. Most gas blowers start up with a manual pull start, though some models have the help of an attached powered device.
