Electric Leaf Blowers
After cutting and trimming your lawn, you’ll need to clear off those walkways and patios for the finishing touch. An electric corded or cordless leaf blower is the perfect choice.
Electric leaf blowers are lightweight, easy to maneuver, offer power comparable to their gas powered counterparts, and require minimum maintenance. When choosing the electric trimmer you need, it is important to consider air volume and velocity and how far the area needing clearing is from an outlet.
When choosing to electrify your lawn care equipment, be sure to do your homework. Costs for equipment vary depending on your needs. Corded options generally cost less, have a continuous power supply, work best for areas within 100 feet of an appropriately sized outlet, and add a 100 foot, 12-gauge extension cord to your cache of tools. Cordless, battery powered options offer greater flexibility and portability but do cost more, are limited by battery life, and generally add extra weight and bulk.
