Buying the best leaf blower can be very tricky, especially with so many options available. In the following sections, we have provided a list of the top five leaf blowers presently in the market.
1. STIHL BGA 85:
The BGA 85 delivers blowing performance just like a mains-powered unit and lasts for 30 minutes before needing a recharge. What sets it part, though, is its adjustable speed that allows you to control the output power. Thanks to its durability and solid performance, it is highly recommended in many leaf blower reviews.
2. BOSCH ALB LI:
Although the ALB LI isn’t the most powerful leaf blower around, it is excellent when it comes to versatility and ease of use. Its compact design makes it both east to store and carry around. This tool goes well with many other Bosch tools including sanders, drills and strimmers. Overall, this can be a great cordless leaf blower for those with small gardens.
3. STIHL SHE 71:
The Stihl SHE 71 is a simple vac/blower with not many outstanding features. It isn’t battery powered and has no variable speed option, but it sports a flawless design and is easy to handle. The ON/OFF switch and a well-designed handle make it pretty comfortable to use this blower in both the “blower” and the “vacuum” modes. Thanks to its solid build quality, easily replaceable tubes and a 10m long mains cable, the SHE 71 is one of the most sold leaf blowers in 2016.
4. BLACK & DECKER GW2200:
This leaf blower is an ideal choice for those who want the full capabilities of a multipurpose leaf blower without spending too much. The GW2200 uses a single tube for both blowing and sucking. Due to its simple push button release, it can be set up very quickly. Also, the amount of power it delivers is same as its pricier alternatives. However, the lost cost shows up in some areas – like cheap build quality and a thin cable (6m).
5. KARCHER S650:
The S650 does a fantastic job in clearing all kinds of debris from flat, hard surfaces like driveways, but its performance is poor on soft ground. It even struggles when dealing with wet vegetation. Its build quality is solid and all the power it requires is generated while you push it. So, there is no need of batteries or messy power cables.
