At Oldrids & Downtown we have a wide range of affordable cordless, electric and petrol leaf blowers and garden vacs that are designed to help you keep your garden tidy throughout the autumn and winter months. 

A garden blow vac is an extremely useful garden tool for tackling even the most challenging of tasks when it comes to clearing fallen leaves and light garden debris. Many models now combine both blow and vacuum functions for even more flexibility. You will also find that models such as the Bosch Variable Blow Speed Electric Leaf Blower / Garden Tidy will also shred any fallen leaves and small twigs ready for composting. It is important to clear these leaves because not only will they block light but they can also harbour diseases and insects that can affect the health of your lawn.

It is however important to remember that leaf blowers and blow vacs are not designed to pick up any stones or twigs as they will damage your machine. If you're picking up leaves from a stoney or pebbled area such as a driveway or soil, make sure you first blow your leaves onto grass before you vacuum them up.

Before you buy your blow vac, there is a few questions that you will want to consider first. 

How big is your Garden? - One of the most important questions is how big your garden is and essential how much work you'll need your leaf blower to do. If you have a small garden, then a lightweight electric or cordless blow vac will suit you best. If purchasing an electric model, consider the length of the cable and whether this will comfortably reach your entire garden.

For larger gardens and any remote working, a petrol leaf blower may be the best choice. They provide more power than their electric counterparts and can also be used at any distance from a power source. Many petrol leaf blowers are backpack models that put the bulb of the weight onto your back with padded shoulder straps. This is ideal for the larger powerful models such as the Cobra BP43C Back Pack Blower.

What functions do you need? - In their simplest form, you will find leaf blowers will clear areas of your garden using a strong jet of air - blowing leaves into areas where they can be transferred to compost bins or disposed of. However, some modern models now offer shredding and vacuum functions that make tidying areas of your garden even easier - however these can be more expensive.

What's more, you can also view our range in person at our Downtown Garden Centre - although you will not be able to test them out on the shop floor!
