“This leaf blower is perfect for most yard jobs. I have used it to blow pine cones, pine needles, and leaves. It has also blown away a few small sticks. Keeping grass off of the sidewalks and patio is great. The only con is that it vibrates your arm off. No big deal if you use it in 10-15 min intervals.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.

7. Husqvarna Leaf Blower ($319.95)
This is Husqvarna 1.6 kW, 50.2 CC, 7500 rpm, and 180 mph leaf blower. It is a lightweight fan with a harmlessly integrated backpack.

“I am impressed this is a well-made well designed, allot quieter than I suspected it ever would be. No vibration to speak of…the harness distributes the weight well and evenly and is comfortable for long duration wear about a three hr. Run time on a tank of gas. I bought Husqvarna 2 cycle oil for air cooled Low smoke formula mixed with premium high octane fuel. I see no perceived smoke at all from the exhaust. Started up on the first pull. It does recommend that you change the plug twice a year, and I bought six spark plugs to have on hand so I won’t be tempted to put off recommending change times. As a person whose job is Quality Assurance I grade tough on many levels and would have no problem telling you of any problem but this product makes the grade. Money well spent and not a second of regret for this purchase.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.

“I bought this leaf blower because of the 4-Stroke engine. From that standpoint I am euphoric as it starts right up, is easy to fill with gas and is much quieter than a 2-Stroke driving force. The downside is that it doesn’t seem to have the power that I would expect of a “Commercial Grade” blower. It works perfect for light/medium duty jobs, but if you have large piles of leaves to move you may need to get out the rake.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
