Electric garden tools have come a long way in recent years, but come the autumn months homeowners with large gardens will still benefit greatly from investing in a handheld petrol leaf blower. This is because powerful petrol leaf blower vacuums will quickly clear even large areas which have become covered in a carpet of leaves, grass, dirt or debris, thereby saving significant time and effort otherwise spent on manual clearance while leaving a dependably tidy finish in its wake. Ideal for either private or light commercial use, these hardworking petrol machines are therefore the only way to go if you are looking to maintain an extensive area replete with large numbers of trees.
Although still louder and heavier than the corded electric machines aimed at those with small domestic gardens, modern petrol blowers are often lightweight, quieter than you’d expect and surprisingly clean running, so you will still feel fresh even after extended periods of use. With most models now incorporating either two-stroke engines with clever emission control systems or even compact four-stroke engines for reduced noise and fumes, these developments in petrol blower technology are very welcome as nothing performs as well as a petrol leaf blower when faced with heavier workloads in larger areas. This is because a petrol blower is not restricted by factors such as requiring access to a power source or relying on batteries which need regular recharging, so with a petrol powered blower you can work with complete freedom for as long as it takes to get the job done.
Handheld petrol blowers offer a particularly fantastic combination of portability and power, with some machines capable of producing air speeds of up to 200mph! This much clout will allow you to remove leaves and other debris even from wet surfaces, so a petrol machine is a must have for professional landscapers and contractors. Aside from the engine size the best way of determining the pushing power of a blower is to check the air speed and flow rates for the machine you are buying, though the best models will also feature fine tuned throttle controls and shaped nozzles to optimise airflow and maximise effectiveness in a range of situations.
Petrol blowers may also have a vacuum kit either supplied as standard or available as an optional extra. This enables leaf collection for an even tidier finish, with many blowers also featuring a shredding blade on the impeller fan to maximise collection capacity. Whatever your particular requirements, however, we are bound to have a machine which will blow you away!
