What is a leaf blower? How to the suitable model? 

A "blower" that can send out the wind and collect and blow off fallen leaves and debris. It can be used easily and conveniently for work such as cleaning and draining. In addition, since it has various performances depending on the type, it can be widely used according to the application.

So this time, I will introduce how to choose a leaf blower and recommended models. Please choose the blower that suits your purpose and purpose.


What is a leaf blower?

A blower is a machine that sends out wind by a motor. An item that is convenient for collecting and collecting fallen leaves in one place by blowing off fallen leaves with the power of the wind. For home use, it can be used not only for cleaning fallen leaves but also for pruning work and cleaning after mowing.

It can also be used to send strong winds and splash water droplets. After washing with water, when washing the car, you can reduce the burden of wiping with a towel by blowing off the water droplets with a blower.

How to choose a leaf blower?

Choose by type

"Handy type" that is small and easy to handle

"Handy type" that is compact and easy to use. Since it is easy to handle, it can be used for simple tasks in a short time and in small parts. It is also characterized by being used smoothly just by holding it in your hand and operating it. It is also convenient to carry.

However, the size and weight differ depending on the model, and the capacity also differs even though it is small. If it is a small type, the power will be weaker, and it will be difficult to blow off many fallen leaves. Therefore, check the size and ability according to the work content and the number of fallen leaves to be blown off.

"Backpack type" that makes it easy to work for a long time

"Backpack type" featuring powerful power. It is large and heavy, so it is inconvenient to carry it on and off frequently, but it can blow off a large number of fallen leaves at once, making it suitable for large areas and long hours of work.

In addition, since the main body is carried on the back, it is also an advantage that the burden on the arms and hands can be reduced. However, depending on the place of use, such as a small residential area, you need to be careful about the loudness of the sound. This type is recommended for large-scale cleaning work, such as treating a wide range of fallen leaves.

Choose by power


There are two types of electric motors that use electric power to drive the motor: cord and rechargeable. Many of them are relatively lightweight and are easy to carry and handle.

The cord type is connected to an outlet to obtain power. A power supply is required at the place of use, but if there is a generator, etc., it can be used anywhere. Also, although it is a drawback that you can only work within the length of the cord, you can expand the working range by using an extension cord such as a drum type.

The advantage of the rechargeable type is that there is no limit to the working range because it is cordless. It is easy to use without a power supply in the work area. However, if you use it for a long time, it may run out of charge, so it is recommended to prepare a spare battery.

Engine type

An engine type that is operated by fuel such as gasoline. Like the rechargeable type, it is cordless, so there is no limit to the working range, and it can be used in a wide range of situations.

If you prepare gasoline for replenishment, you can use it for a long time. However, many models are heavier than the electric type, and they also contain fuel, so I feel that much heavier. On the other hand, it can be powerful and reduce work time.

When choosing a leaf blower, it is important to check the wind speed and volume, considering the object and location to be blown off depending on the work content to be used. The higher the wind speed, the stronger the wind, and the more heavy objects can be blown away.

If it is a light object such as dry fallen leaves or dust, a type with a low wind speed is sufficient. However, when blowing off heavy objects such as wet fallen leaves, the type with high wind speed is suitable.

Also, depending on the air volume, it will change within the range that can be blown off at once, so check it out. If the air volume is small, the range that can be blown off is narrow, and if the air volume is large, a large number of objects can be blown off over a wide range.

"With vacuum function" that can suck in fallen leaves is also recommended.

There is also a blower with a vacuum function depending on the type. It is convenient because it sucks in fallen leaves like a leaf vacuum mulcher, so there is no need to use a broom or dustpan.

When using it in a large area with many fallen leaves, it can be blown off and collected in one place and finally sucked and collected. When used in a narrow and small amount, it can be collected by inhaling directly.

In addition, if the type has a function to crush the inhaled fallen leaves and tree branches, the collection work after inhalation can be done smoothly.
