Leaf Blowers are an essential part of any handheld equipment collection. Leaf blowers are much more than their name entails. Leaf blowers can clear many types of debris from your work area, sidewalk, driveway, or lawn. The best leaf blower for each job can vary by how powerful your leaf blower is.
When it comes to outdoor power equipment brand means a lot, due to the small size and lightweight nature of handheld power equipment engineers must squeeze all of the power they can out of a smaller package. Commercial leaf blowers and other handheld equipment must be handled for hours at a time and often every day. This requires construction and engineering to be as close to perfect as possible.
This is no small feat when there are so many types of leaf blowers available. Each type of leaf blower has a specific job that it excels at so it’s important to have these blowers available. Leaf blowers are available in gasoline and electric power, with corded electric blowers and cordless electric blowers as the two options for electric power.
With that said here at The Yard Stop we carry Stihl leaf blowers, our expert team and large commercial customer base all agree that there is no close competitor in any aspect.

Electric leaf blowers are perfect for areas that have noise limitations but they’re also great for quick jobs and easy use. There are two options for electric leaf blowers corded and cordless. Cordless electric leaf blowers are growing in technology and use very vast. These are great for using out on the farm, yard, and any task that requires mobility. The corded electric blowers are best for at-home use but can be a great option on construction sites too. Anywhere with a plug that you need a quiet, effective, and easy to use handheld blower.
Gasoline leaf blowers are the most powerful and mobile pieces of leaf blower equipment. Other key factors to keep in mind are engine cycle type, 2-cycle, or 4-cycle. Two-Cycle engines run on a gasoline and oil blend. This eliminates half of the combustion cycle allowing fewer mechanical parts, in turn, this allows the equipment to be much lighter. Four-Cycle engines are usually heavier and require regular oil changes but can eliminate the risk of operator error when mixing fuel. Luckily The Yard Stop offers premixed 2-cycle fuel/oil that will keep your engine protected. You can find it here.
Leaf blowers are commonly made to fit each of these categories. There are handheld, backpack, vacuum capable, walk behind, and sweeper style blowers.
Handheld blowers are the most common and are lightweight but powerful with wind speeds recorded up 190 mph! Handheld blowers are most often 2-cycle so plan on keeping premixed or a separate container of self-mixed fuel for them.
Backpack leaf blowersBackpack leaf blowers are the best of both worlds, they are extremely powerful and versatile! They do weigh quite a bit more with the largest model clocking on at 23lbs but that’s not a bad trade for the power you get. For example, the Stihl BR 800 X Magnum is rated conservatively at 239mph but with a larger air volume. That unit can move a lot of debris!
