BLACK + DECKER makes power tools called leaf blowers, designed to blow leaves, sand, grass clippings, and other yard debris off sidewalks and decks or into piles to make it easy to clean up. The company uses a powerful lithium battery, which has a decent yet short charge time and provides enough juice to complete most of your project before a re-charge. BLACK + DECKER leaf blowers also have a “powerboost” function to help deliver a quick, more powerful gust to a difficult area. Options include models that can also vacuum and mulch your leaves. These models are bigger, but also more powerful, and really get hard surfaces clear of debris effectively. Models from BLACK + DECKER tend to run in a mid-point to lower price range. Pay attention to how much air the blower can push and how fast to get an idea of how effective these blowers will be at getting your yard work completed.
