How To Choose a Leaf Blower
There are several things to consider when choosing a leaf blower. The size of your yard, amount of leaves or debris you need to clear, and ease of use are all factors that will help narrow your search for the perfect leaf blower.
Electric or Gas Leaf Blowers?
Troy-Bilt offers leaf blowers in electric, 2-cycle and 4-cycle varieties.
Electric Leaf Blowers are ideal for smaller yards. Their lightweight design makes them comfortable to use and the electric motors require little maintenance.

2-Cycle Gas-Powered Leaf Blowers provide ample power to clear leaves and debris from a variety of surfaces. 2-cycle engines can be found in handheld and backpack gas leaf blowers, and are JumpStart' capable. However, these engines do require you to mix oil and gas. Unlike electric blowers, 2-cycle gas leaf blowers are not limited by power cords, giving you the ability to clear larger areas.

4-Cycle Gas-Powered Leaf Blowers eliminate the need to mix oil and gas - they take straight fuel. They are also more powerful and efficient than 2-cycle models. 4-cycle engines can be found in handheld and backpack leaf blowers, and are JumpStart capable. Unlike electric blowers, 4-cycle gas leaf blowers are not limited by power chords, giving you the ability to clear larger areas.

MPH and CFM
Miles per hour (MPH) and cubic feet per minute (CFM) are the two measurements used to rate the power and speed of most leaf blowers. Miles per hour is a measurement of how fast air comes out of the leaf blower, and is more helpful for moving heavier debris. Cubic feet per minute is a measurement of the volume of air a blower can move in one minute. The higher these two numbers are, the more blowing power a unit will have.
Handheld Leaf Blowers
Handheld leaf blowers, also called suitcase blowers, are designed to be used by one hand. They are best for small to mid-sized yards and come in electric, 2-cycle and 4-cycle options.

Backpack Leaf Blowers
These leaf blowers are designed to be more comfortable for longer periods of use. They are more powerful than handheld blowers and feature fully-tensioned suspension systems that evenly distribute their weight across your back.

Wheeled Leaf Blowers
Wheeled leaf blowers are designed for clearing medium to extra large yards and areas. Their wheeled design makes them more comfortable to use and creates less arm fatigue than other designs. They are also the most powerful type of leaf blower, capable of clearing heavy piles of leaves and debris.
