The leaves are coming, fall is here. Cleaning up those pesky leaves can be easy this year with the right leafblower. Why work harder than needed? Every year advancements are made in technology. Here’s some great tips for selecting your new leafblower.
Have fun without disturbing the peace! When selecting your leaf blower, keep in mind how close your neighbors are, and how to keep noise pollution to a minimum. Disturbing the neighborhood with your lawncare equipment is a thing of the past. The newer electric leaf blowers are quieter, and some even have settings for noise. Reducing noise without reducing performance is one of the perks of owning a newer electric leaf blower.
For the big jobs, you can go lighter than you thought! When using a high performance leafblower, keep in mind that electric is the lightest. There is no need for large motors and tanks on electric leaf blowers, which reduces the load you have to carry. With electric consider the weight of a battery vs. straight electric. Always use a shoulder strap with your leaf blower, no matter what type of motor you have. You will find it much easier to handle.
MESS AND GRIME
Consider the mess when you're dealing with a gas blower. Consider whether you mind getting dirty with gas, oil and grime. Also think ahead about where you will be storing it during the year, and if you have a well ventilated storage space. With electric, you’ll have very little mess, and can be stored almost anywhere.
Better performing motors are being designed all the time. You can now find smaller, more powerful blowers than ever imagined. Both gas and electric offer better performance than in the past. Make your cleanup time shorter, and actually fun, when cleaning up those tough jobs!
Think about having to go for gas and oil every time you use your leaf blower. If you’re trying to save time, an electric leaf blower is for you. The electric motor need less maintenance, and doesn’t require a last minute trip to the gas pump every time you want to use it. You will also spend less time with electric, since they start right up every time you need them. No cords to pull, no gas, no priming, etc.
With all the new options out there, make sure you take the time to stop by AFFORDABLE TOOLS of Midland, Tx. Let us show you what's new, and help you select the perfect blower for the needs of your household!
