The Best Cordless Blowers For Your Backyard

Feb 6, 2008
With the start of spring it's the time to raise a war against the leaves which clutter everyplace in your backyard, lawn, driveway. And what a war it should be which ends with lots of discomfort and noise. If that was the case with you last spring, then its time now to change the blower you are using. Because we recommend winning the war with ease and without noise (and even without bothering your neighbor on a cozy Saturday morning).

When it comes to clean the backyard in real time the only question you can ask yourself is Cordless or no Cordless? Even if you have an average size lawn to clean from the falling leaves the corded blower may not suit you as it will make you to carry the wired extension to all the places you move.

It does have some advantages like no battery required but entangling of the cord may take out all the fun out of it. The best option in such scenarios is the cordless blower. And if you are keen to opt for it you may again face a new challenge, i.e. Gas or Electric? Both have their own set of advantages and disadvantages as well. Let's start with the electric blower.

The cordless electric blower is the right partner in crime as it is portable, lightweight (as there is no cord or gas to be carried) and easy to operate. Many electric blowers also give the option for vacuuming the leaves which in general is very helpful. Another best part is the variable speed offered by the blowers in this category, it really helps you in cleaning through your flower beds and portico.

The air coming out of the blower is counted in miles/hour, which reaches to nearly 100 miles/hour mark (so not a good idea to aim at pets or handled by kids). The air volume is listed in cubic feet/minute (cfm) indicating how much air the blower can move.

In general with a rechargeable battery pack of 12 to 18v the electric blower can clean an average size lawn with a freshly charged battery. The disadvantages the electric cordless blower faces are the blowing speed (which is less than the corded and gas blowers) and the inefficiency of cleaning when it comes to professional or big landscapes. Thus the cordless blower proves to be the best for non-commercial use for pollution free cleaning.

Gas blowers are known for the power they create in lawn cleaning (similarly for the noise and emissions as well). For general use you can have the 24-30cc (in gas blowers the power is measured in Cubic Capacity i.e. cc) gas blowers.

Compared to the electric counterparts the gas blowers are there to clean any size of lawn, as there is only the need of refueling rather than charging the battery (which might take upto 30 mins. in electric blowers).

To clean a big size lawn or a professional landscape you also have the option of using the backpack gas blower which as the name suggests convenient to carry. The only trouble with the gas blowers is the noise and the emissions they are ill named for.

Compared to the electric counterpart this fuel (a mix of gasoline and oil) emit gases and also produce noise which gradually increases with heavy and regular use. Apart from this the gas blower is the perfect way to clean the lawns and keep clean in spring.

Try any blower before you make the choice to purchase it and while operating in the backyard do wear the recommended safety gear for a safe spring cleaning.
