These tools make clean-up quicker, easier, thorough, and fun.

    Buyer’s Guide

    Job Size and Type

    Best Cordless Leaf BlowerHow and where you will use the blower? To remove leaves from your yard? To clear debris and clippings from your driveway? To blow leaves off the roof or out of the gutters?

    With variable speeds and power levels, most blowers can tackle all of these jobs. Some blowers can perform more detailed tasks like cleaning small spaces or drying the car.

    Or you could even…

    Crank up the power for bigger jobs, like pushing leaves across the lawn.

    Weight

    Save your back and arms by choosing a blower light enough to use easily. You’ll need to carry around the blower long enough to finish the job.

    Also…

    Smaller blowers are more maneuverable. That’s a big consideration for a lot of people.

    Eco-friendliness

    The biggest complaints about leaf blowers are noise and air pollution. Since almost all of the reviewed models don’t use gas, most are emissions-free. If you use a cordless leaf blower that uses a rechargeable battery, be sure to dispose of it responsibly.
