With three styles of gale-force leaf and debris-blowing capability, the gas leaf blower category is sure to offer a model that matches your needs.
The size of your cleanups will dictate which style to go with:
Handheld gas leaf blower
Backpack gas leaf blower
Walk-behind gas leaf blower
GAS LEAF BLOWERS
Handheld Gas Leaf Blowers
If you're looking for a machine that's powerful yet still small and easy to operate, consider a gas-powered handheld leaf blower. These handheld blowers are heavier than their electric counterparts, yet only tip the scales at around 15 pounds so they don't require too much effort to use.
Gas-powered handheld leaf blowers have more power, blowing air at speeds of around 150-200 mph. Because the engines are gasoline powered, they're louder than electric models. Gas-powered leaf blowers include a recoil start so you'll pull a cord to fire them up.
With a backpack blower strapped to your back, you'll be enjoying your clean and uncluttered lawn in no time. Only weighing between 15-20 pounds, these backpack leaf blowers won't physically exhaust you.
If you find yourself repeatedly saying, "It needs more power," then a walk-behind leaf blower is the perfect choice for you. You'll need to push these around, but their power is unmatched.
Walk-behind blowers are louder than the other options, but they can move more leaves than any of the other gas blower styles. These are popular with landscaping crews who need to blow grass clippings or leaves away from sidewalks and fences.
