Black+DeckerBEBL185-QS

Editor’s note: 5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

black & decker electric blower bebl185-qsDead leaves in the garden, debris in the workshop, dust in the garage… you can also opt for a versatile blower! With the Black+Decker and its 190 km/h of blowing power, cleaning is easy, especially since it is electric, you just have to plug the device in to make it work. Extremely easy to grip, its wide handle allows you to control it while giving you access to speed adjustment. Indeed, it is possible to opt for a soft blow, ideal for sensitive areas (such as around flowers for example) or a strong blow, perfect for quickly cleaning large surfaces (and removing wet leaves). Weighing only 3.45 kg, it also knows how to be light enough so that the work is never too difficult. Its sound volume also remains bearable during use.

My opinion : This leaf blower from Black+Decker has the power to please everyone! Whether you are a professional or an individual, you will appreciate its power and ease of use both indoors and outdoors. Its breath is of excellent quality, and the uses that can be made of it are numerous: it can even be useful for drying a car more quickly! For a corded device, I found the power cord a bit short for optimal freedom of movement. But in the end it was fixed nicely with an extension cord, and that’s the only thing I have to complain about. For these features and for a brand like Black+Decker, it’s not expensive at all. You can afford it without hesitation!

Bosch universal garden cleaner

Editor’s note: 4.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

bosch garden tidy universal electric blowerThe ideal solution for effectively cleaning the garden! The Bosch Universal Garden Tidy is not just an electric blower: it vacuums and mulches at the same time to quickly get rid of all the leaves lying around. Switching between these different features is also very easy, and the speed remains variable in both blower and vacuum mode. All garden waste is collected in a bag with a generous volume of 45 L, a bag whose design has been thought out to make its use more practical. It is easily dismantled and thanks to the presence of a zipper, its emptying is simple. Light and handy, the brand has also made sure that the device is as quiet as possible, and that its sound level does not exceed 99 dB, enough to be as pleasant for the user as for its neighbors!

My opinion : Sweeping and picking up dead leaves is fine, except you have to pick them up later. With this electric garden blower/vacuum/shredder, cleaning the garden is much less complicated! This 3 in 1 function is really appreciable, especially since Bosch has done a good job at all levels. The air jet is powerful enough, the suction is sufficient to catch leaves but without dislodging decorative stones for example, and the metal grinding wheel is of good quality. Since it’s a corded blower, you’ll need to plug it into an extension cord to reach the bottom of your garden. But apart from this detail, it is a really practical device that I recommend without hesitation.

Black+Decker GWC54PC-QW

Editor’s note: 5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

black & decker electric leaf blower gwc54pc-qwPart of the DualVolt range, this Black+Decker electric leaf blower is one of the brand’s most powerful cordless outdoor tools. It is notably equipped with PowerCommand technology which boosts performance, especially for sweeping up the most stubborn debris. It is therefore able to fly up to a speed of 195 km/h! Lightweight at just 4.4 kg (battery included), everything has been designed to limit user fatigue and make work as comfortable as possible, especially during prolonged use. It is also for this reason that the ergonomic handle is rubberized and that the control of the device is done directly with the thumb (push function). Supplied with a lithium-ion battery (and charger), this battery has no memory effect or self-discharge, and a full recharge takes only 165 minutes.

My opinion : If you prefer the freedom of movement offered by cordless blowers, I recommend this model from Black+Decker! Of all the ones I’ve had the opportunity to try, this is my favorite. It is above all the fact of being able to increase the force of the blow that convinced me: the device is then very powerful for blowing leaves or even other debris. Inevitably, with so much power, the battery does not last long (about twenty minutes), but it is generally sufficient, and the device is obviously compatible with other 18V batteries. Also, in terms of lightness and maneuverability, it’s the best! Unlike others, it’s an electric blower that requires a fairly large financial investment (just over €200), but once you have it, you really don’t regret it!

Ryobi OBL18JB

Editor’s note: 4.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

ryobi obl18jb electric blowerRyobi offers here a leaf blower with Turbo Jet technology for better performance by concentrating the air flow. With a speed of up to 160 km/h, blowing away debris is easy, especially since the tube has a built-in scraper to loosen wet leaves. This tube is also removable, and once removed from the engine block, the unit takes up much less space, making it ideal for storage. In use, it also knows how to be practical: its handle is in micro honeycomb for a firm grip, it is light to maintain maneuverability and a speed variator guarantees perfect control. Please note that it comes without a battery or charger, but is compatible with all Ryobi 18V ONE+ batteries.

My opinion : With this blower we are at a good price / quality ratio, especially if you already have Ryobi tools (and batteries). As it is sold without battery, it is not expensive (well under 100 €) and yet the efficiency is there. Its jet has enough power to clean all outdoor areas (from the driveway to the garden to the terrace), I found it well balanced and therefore pleasant to use. And although it is not very quiet, I have known other models that were much louder. However, the problem with wireless devices is always the same: the battery does not necessarily last very long! But for non-professional use and without having to spend too much money, this Ryobi does the job perfectly.

Dewalt DCM562PB-QW

Editor’s note: 4.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

dewalt dcm562pb-qw electric leaf blowerTo dislodge leaves where they are no longer welcome! This DeWalt electric blower is equipped with a Brushless motor known for its durability and performance, which allows it to offer a blowing speed of up to 144 km/h (easily variable thanks to a trigger to adapt to all situations). In addition to full control, this trigger also has a locking system to make extended use less painful. This is not the only element that brings comfort to the user: in addition to its compact design and its ergonomic handle, the device weighs only 3.2 kg to limit arm fatigue. Sold without battery or charger, it is however part of the brand’s XR range and is therefore compatible with all 18V batteries found in other devices in this range.

My opinion : This DeWalt is in my opinion a very good compromise: it is of professional quality and perfectly suited for home use. As a leaf blower, it does a very good job, and although on paper 144 km/h is less than other models, it is more than enough. Since this is a great engine, I guarantee you will have no problem clearing wet leaves from your lawn! What I also like about this model is that the variable speed drive allows you to work more carefully (next to flower beds, for example) but also more discreet in terms of noise level. As it is quite light, I also found it pleasant to handle. If you have other tools of this brand (with 18V batteries), this is a good option at a more than reasonable price for this quality!
