How To Choose The Perfect Leaf Blower

How To Choose the Perfect Leaf Blower

Need a leaf blower for this Fall Season but are not sure what kind to buy? We’ve got you covered. Here is everything you need to know about each type of leaf blower. Read to see how you can choose the perfect leaf blower for your needs.

Types of Leaf Blowers

Handheld Leaf Blowers

Handheld blowers are lightweight, maneuver easily, and take up minimal storage space. Held comfortably with one hand, handheld blowers are the most popular option among homeowners and are great for small jobs that don’t require massive amounts of blowing power. Their power can typically handle light snow, sawdust, and dry leaves.

Backpack Leaf Blowers

With backpack blowers, the motor sits in a harness strapped to the user’s back, making it more comfortable and less taxing on the user’s arm. They are slightly larger than your average handheld blower, so keep that in mind when it comes to storage. Backpack blowers are more powerful and have longer run times than handheld blowers, making them perfect for medium-large scale jobs that require blowing for long periods of time. Their power can typically handle wet leaves, small rocks, and metal shavings.

Walk-Behind Leaf Blowers

The largest and most powerful option of blowers are walk-behind blowers. Great for large scale, professional jobs, these blowers are powerful enough to blow away cardboard, piles of leaves, and other trash. Most favorable to landscaping professionals, walk-behind blowers are the least physically exacting and the biggest in terms of storage. 

Leaf Blower Fuel Types

Battery

Battery-operated blowers are as easy as clicking in the battery and blowing away. This fuel type (or lack thereof) is most popular among first-time-blower buyers. It is also great for those that own batteries from the same brand of machines because they are normally interchangeable. With little to no maintenance necessary, the only real cons to a battery-operated leaf blower is it’s limited power and run time.

Corded

A step up in run time from the battery-operated blowers, a corded leaf blower is a great option for those that want the ease of a battery-operated blower but with more power. Corded blowers are lightweight with great output. But, the very thing that gives it more power (the cord) is also what makes it less desirable. The cord can get in the way or even catch on the machine and limits the distance you can travel with your blower.

Gas

The most powerful type of blower is going to be your gas-fueled leaf blower. Gas blowers are perfect for landscaping companies or homeowners with a large space to cover. There are some that require an oil/gas blend and others that run on gas alone. Luckily, we sell premixed oil/gas blends with ratios specific to your machine so that you can take the guesswork out of filling your blower. 

With gas blowers, keep in mind that they require the most maintenance, are the loudest of all blowers, and you of course, need to purchase gas.

Leaf Blower Features

CFM

CFM means Cubic Feet per Minute. CFM is the volume of air coming out of the leaf blower, which also translates to how far the blower will push the leaves. People like to talk about wind speed, but it’s really the CFM that matters. 

MPH

MPH is the Miles Per Hour, which measures how fast the air is moving out of the mower. Having a blower with a higher MPH will allow you to complete an entire job quicker due to its power.

A blower with a high CFM will allow you to blow more leaves, whereas a blower with a high MPH will blow away larger debris. If you have to choose one over the other, it’s best to choose a blower with a higher CFM.

The Right Leaf Blower For You

For homeowners with a small yard, deck or patio, a battery or corded-handheld leaf blower will probably suit you best. For those with a medium-large space to cover with lots of debris to blow, either a battery or gas-powered-backpack leaf blower would be optimal. And lastly, large scale or professional landscaping projects would benefit most from investing in a walk-behind leaf blower, which would typically only run on gas. 

Regardless of the type of leaf blower you need for this autumn season, we’ve got it here waiting for you at Suburban Lawn & Equipment. Stop in to pick out the perfect blower for you!

Your Guide to Honda Generators

Have you ever experienced a power outage during business hours or at home when you needed electricity? Chances are you have been caught off guard more than once simply because you didn’t have one thing nearby… Honda Generators!

At Suburban Lawn Equipment in Delaware, we encourage our customers to purchase Honda Generators to keep your business going and protect your family during power shortages. If you’re a business or homeowner who thinks of purchasing one, here’s everything you need to know about Honda Generators.

What You Need to Know about Honda Generators

  1. Consult your local outdoor power equipment provider. Generator experts will not only advise you which model will suit your needs best, but they will also provide you with essential tools to get your equipment up and running in no time.
  2. Use generators outdoors only and away from any windows.  To keep the toxins out of your home, install a battery operated CO alarm as an extra safety net.
  3. Check the noise levels before your purchase. Many areas have noise ordinances that may impact generator usage, particularly at night.
  4. Use a heavy-duty extension cord for outdoors. Avoid extension cords with visible wires.
  5. Do not use Honda Generator in the rain. If that’s not possible, do your best to shield it from moisture to avoid electrocution.
  6. Never refuel a generator when it’s on. Always cool your equipment down first. It’s easy to cause a fire when gasoline or other flammable liquid spills onto a hot surface.
  7. Don’t feel intimidated. There’s no special training required in order to operate your new power generator. In addition, most standard generator models are equipped with wheels and a handle, making it completely mobile and ready to transport from one place to another.

Here’s more reasons why your business needs a Honda Generator.
