Stihl leaf blowers - Balmers Buying Guide

With the autumn season upon us, it's common to find leaves strewn all over the place, leaving your garden and pathways looking messy and landscapes covered in a cluster of foliage. When clearing leaves, many of us reach for a rake or broom to sweep away garden debris. However, raking can become tedious and time-consuming, especially when maintaining your garden at home or working on a large commercial landscape job.

Stihl leaf blowers - Balmers Buying Guide

If you want to clear away those leaves in no time, then a Stihl Leaf Blower is the ideal choice. Leaf blowers are great for blowing leaves and other garden waste such as small sticks, dirt and debris into piles, ready to be gathered and composted. Some of our leaf blower models even have vacuum shredders, which shred the leaves into smaller pieces and suck up the bits to reduce the amount of garden waste. 

With Stihl leaf blowers, we have something for everyone, whether it's corded leaf blowers that are great for small jobs in the garden or cordless backpack blowers that are excellent for larger-scale jobs on commercial properties.
