It's true, this piece of machinery can be a bit pricey, but you'll get lots of use out of it. You'll surely put it to good use in the fall when leaves are cluttering up your lawn and walkways almost daily. It's a great way to keep your deck or patio clear and also to keep your lawn looking pristine. Since the backpack leaf blower is so powerful, you can actually blow on almost any surface, and rounding up the leaves into a pile on the lawn is no problem. You'll also get lots of use out of it in the summer after you mow. Indeed, whether you use a push lawn mower, riding mower, or a zero turn, the leaf blower is a great companion. It makes short work of clearing out the fresh grass clippings. You'll even find a few uses for it in the spring to help clear out all the clippings you've done with your electric or cordless hedge trimmer. The only season that you may not get to use the blower at all would be during the winter, when it's all about your snow blower.
There are a lot of options to choose from, so be sure you do some research, look at reviews and ratings of well known brand names. A few good ones to look into are Husqvarna, Redmax, Homelite, and Echo. Take into consideration the type of job you need to do with your blower and see if the descriptions and reviews match your needs before narrowing down your selection.
