Anyone with a garden should know by now about the many benefits of a leaf blower and how more effective they are when compared to traditional rakes. Not to say that you shouldn’t also have a reliable rake close by, it’s just that leaf blowers are a lot more useful when trying to get things done quickly. This being said, you should definitely consider getting an electric leaf blower to complement your gardening tools, especially given how inexpensive they are.
They are reliable, easy to use, maneuverable, and very easy to maintain. All you need to do is to make sure that you get one that is guaranteed to last you for a very long time. This is where we come into play because we put together a list of the ten best electric leaf blowers the market has to offer at this point in time.
10WORX WG518 Electric Blower/Mulcher/Vac
Powered by a reliable 12 Amp 2-speed electric motor, the WG518 from WORX is one of the most powerful leaf blowers in this price range. It also features a metal impeller which develops a 16:1 mulching ratio and a 160-250 mph / 400 CFM air speed/volume. At the same time, it has a relatively simple tool free assembly design that allows you to convert it to a blower/vac quickly and effortlessly.
9Toro 51585 Power Sweep Electric Leaf Blower
Toro 51585 can generate a blowing air speed of 160 mph, which is more than enough when it comes to an electric leaf blower. Lightweight and easy to use, you aren’t likely to run into any issues transporting and storing it away when you’re done using it. Furthermore, this compact leaf blower features a 2-speed air control system to ensure that you won’t overdo the blowing job whenever you are presented with a few leafs.
8WORX WG509 Electric TriVac Blower/Mulcher/Vacuum
This compact leaf blower features an all-in-one system that enables it to operate as a blower, a vacuum, or a mulcher depending on your needs. In fact, it converts from a blower to a vacuum with just a flip of a switch when necessary. It also uses a metal impeller with an added shredder blade to provide an 18:1 mulching ratio along with electronic variable speed capabilities for corner sweeping operations.
7Weed Eater WEB150 7-1/2-Amp Blower
Somewhat larger than the leaf blowers we talked about so far, the Weed Eater WEB150 is designed to act as a professional gardening device by all standards. Equipped with a 7.5 Amp motor, this electric blower can generate 150 mph of blowing power. It also features a 1-speed control interface intended to give you full control of the blower’s capabilities without needlessly complicating things.
6WORX WG591 TURBINE 56V Cordless Blower
The WG591 cordless blower from Worx is perhaps one of the most technologically advanced leaf blowers in its price range. We say this because it features multi-speed controls with a Turbo boost, a highly efficient brushless motor design designed to run for a very long time on a single charge, a large air nozzle for extra tough conditions, and an overall lightweight construction that allows you to operate it using just one hand.
5Black & Decker LSW36 Cordless Sweeper
Thanks to a powerful 40-volt lithium ion rechargeable battery, this cordless sweeper will provide you with the type of leaf blowing you would otherwise expect from a much larger gas-powered blower. Not only that, but it also features power command controls which enable you to fully control the speed according to the job at hand. Also worth mentioning is the fact that it comes with a blow tube with a built-in scraper to allow loosening of matted leaves and stuck-on debris if necessary.
4GreenWorks GBL80300 80V 500CFM Cordless Leaf Blower
With a fully charged battery, the GBL80300 can run up to 70 minutes at full speed, making it one of the most reliable electric leaf blowers on the market. We should also point out that its DigiPro brushless motors will enable the blower to develop the equivalent performance of a 32cc gas engine without any noticeable difference. Not only that but it also benefits from a relatively quiet operation at a mere 60-decibel level.
3Black & Decker BV5600 High Performance Blower/Vac/Mulcher
Equipped with a 12 Amp motor capable of developing 250 mph of blowing power, BV5600 from Black & Decker will handle any leaf blowing job with no issues. It will do so while relatively quiet, with an operational noise of no more than 68 dBA. Also, the fact that it can grind up to 16 bags of mulch is definitely impressive when considering the fact that it is an electric leaf blower after all.
2Toro 51619 Ultra Blower/Vac
Toro 51619 is a powerful blower designed to provide high-standard mulching and blowing while being very easy to operate. Among its many features, we find a large metal impeller intended to drive power and improve mulching at a 250 mph speed. At the same time, it features a vacuum tube, a bottom zip bag, a power insert, a concentrator nozzle, and a cord storage hook for good measure. It also features variable speed controls to provide you with a better control of the blowing/vacuuming process.
1EGO Power+ Cordless Electric Blower
This powerful leaf blower is one of the best on the market today, mostly as a result of its turbine fan engineering which allows it to deliver up to 480 CFM of blowing power. It can also run up to 1 hour at a low setting thanks to its 2.0 Ah battery which is compatible with all EGO Power+ charges. Also worth mentioning is the fact that this leaf blower has a weather-resistant construction that enables you to operate it in all weather conditions.
