Electric Leaf Blowers in Time for Fall Leaves

 

The trees are turning colors this autumn season and will soon be falling to the ground. The yearly chore of collecting the leaves and moving them off of our lawns and driveways is eminent.

 

Many of us use gas powered leaf blowers to manage our leaves. The E.P.A. estimates that gasoline powered lawn equipment accounts for 5% of the air pollution in the United States. Besides the emissions from the exhaust, spilling gas is a major concern. It is estimated that homeowners spill 17 million gallons of gasoline annually when refilling lawn equipment. The Exxon Valdez spill was 10.8 million gallons, 6.2 million gallons less!

 

This year, instead of taking the gas blower to the shop for an expensive tune-up, and then mixing the oil and gasoline together and pulling the rope to start the engine, you should consider a cordless electric blower to move those leaves.

Lithium-Ion battery technology has enabled manufacturers to utilize more efficient electric motors that achieve results that have comparable performance to blowers with gas engines. These are blowers that are light weight, quiet, super dependable, maintenance free and have zero emissions!

The 40-Volt Ryobi, 56-Volt EGO and 58-Volt Echo all are part of a collection of tools capable of accomplishing any landscaping task because these units utilize turbine, or ‘Jet Fan’ technology.

Jet Fan technology also helps the Ryobi 18-volt and Dewalt 20-volt blowers move more air, thus improving their performance, as well.


Each system offers lawn mowers, hedge trimmers, chainsaws, and string trimmers that can be attachment capable. There is even a snow blower available!

We now have viable choices that are easier to maintain, are quiet, light weight and don’t have to pollute like traditional lawn equipment.

 

Until next time, I’ll see you in the aisles!
