Thinking of buying a leaf blower or leaf blower vacuum?
Our Best Buy leaf blowers are easy to use and have enough power to clear your patio and your lawn of autumn leaves, whatever size your garden. So don't settle for a noisy leaf blower that hasn't got enough puff for the job or a heavy leaf blower vacuum that sucks up half your gravel drive along with the hedge trimmings.
We've tested 13 leaf blowers and leaf blower vacuums from brands including Bosch, Ryobi, Stihl and Black & Decker, on lawns, patios and gravel. We've sucked up leaves off the area of two tennis courts during our tests and our Best Buy leaf blowers are versatile and easy to use for all sorts of jobs around the garden.
