Default do cordless leaf blowers have any guts?


My 180mph Ryobi gave up and I'd like to eliminate one more foul ass
stinkin' 2 stoke from my life. Are there cordless models that would be
roughly equivalent in power?

corded electric are pretty useless except for little spots. Cordless...
right.
I got a used 4 cycle on wheels last years; that's the way to do it.

On my third year with a corded Toro blower/chopper. It's a real heller
as a vac/chopper and neighbors are delighted to have the output
(bagged) for garden compost. Works best with the big 40 gallon el
cheapo garbage bags from Sam's, about $9 for half a hundred or so
IIRC. HTH

Hi,

I have a Redmax EBZ8000 backpack blower. It is a two stroke though. I
have hills and slopes, so this works well for me.

Best, Mike.

Power means a lot. I can move a 10-foot pile of leaves easily with my
Husqurvana backpack blower. Have to be careful though, point it at
the ground and the force will throw you back (I'm 160#). My neighbor
has an electric model and it takes him 2 days to get all the leaves
into a pile. It takes me 2 hours.
