Everyone wants to keep their lawns, fresh, beautiful and not covered with fallen leaves in the fall. Sometimes cleaning your lawn takes much time and effort and for professional landscapers, time is money.

Autumn Leaves Beautiful Daylight 1741696PexelsToday there is a large variety of leaf blowers and vacuum shredders available on the market with different characteristics and prices to assist in that process. Landscapers use blowers to navigate around buildings and features, such as shrubs and flowerbeds, quickly moving leaves and lightweight debris.

Powerful and compact these tools are generally presented with three operation s models — gasoline, battery or electric.

When it comes to picking a perfect blower,  you should always think about what type of work you are going to do. If you have a lot of heavy work to do, you might require something with a powerful engine. If you desire something for day to day use, you might want something smaller that runs on batteries.

Depending on the area of use, the frequency of work, and their volume, you can choose industrial, high-pressure blowers and leaf vacuums with a gasoline engine. Alternatively, you can buy one of the smaller devices that will help you do all the work quickly and easily.

Both electric and gas blowers are used to clean any surfaces from fallen leaves and debris.

At the same time, you can find another application for the leaves: process them into mulch with the help of a leaf vacuum and use them to feed cultivated plants. In many cases the vacuum is dual-purpose and serves as a blower as well.

Today I’m looking at five of the top blowers from STIHL, a company that is among the manufacturers such as EchoRedMax, Husqvarna and others that are recognized in this particular portion of the landscaping market.

STIHL offers a wide range of blowers and leaf vacuums that provide a combination of versatility and practicality. These devices are designed for quick and efficient cleaning of lawns, squares, and roads from fallen leaves and light garbage.
