Makita EB5300TH

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

makita eb5300th backpack blowerWith a blast of air projected at a speed of nearly 300 km/h, this thermal blower sweeps away everything in its path! Mainly aimed at professionals, however, it does not exclude anyone thanks to an optimal design. Indeed, Makita has taken care to promote comfort of use, in particular thanks to the 4 shock absorbers mounted around the motor (which reduce vibrations), but also to the padding of the harness, the purpose of which is obviously to preserve the back. The device is also practical and convenient to use: the automatic decompression valve reduces the force needed to start the engine while the trigger allows you to lock the speed without having to keep pressing. As a state-of-the-art model, it finally meets environmental standards for exhaust emissions.

My opinion : In terms of blowing power, few do better than this Makita! I was very impressed, it is very powerful, and it sweeps up absolutely all the leaves, even the wet ones which, with another device, could get stuck in the grass or on the ground. What I also like about this blower is that it is quite comfortable to wear: yes, it ends up weighing on the back, but it causes much less fatigue and pain than the others. Padding and vibration reduction play their role perfectly. I would even go so far as to say that it remains pleasant in terms of sound… provided you use headphones of course! Whether you are a professional or an individual with substantial needs, you will not regret having invested in this device.

Husqvarna 580BTS

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

husqvarna 580bts backpack blowerIt’s simple: this Husqvarna 580BTS is currently the most powerful professional backpack blower! With a speed of over 330 km/h, even the most demanding tasks are completed quickly. It must be said that the turbine is driven by a powerful X-Torq motor which promotes both speed and air flow. The device is not satisfied with more speed and efficiency, it also thinks about the comfort of the user. To support the 11.8 kg while remaining comfortable, the harness is significantly padded and, thanks to a fairly wide lumbar belt, support and ergonomics are improved. As for the latest-generation engine, it reduces harmful emissions by up to 75% and optimizes fuel life by 20%.

My opinion : If certain technical details make the Makita my favorite, this Husqvarna is really not far behind. Here we are with another excellent blower that really does not take long to convince of its efficiency and performance. I know that, in any case, it seduced me very quickly, as soon as I was able to test it in real conditions! It will not be a big surprise if I tell you that it is above all its speed and its airflow that are appreciable: we work really without difficulty! Especially since, even if we cannot say that the device is light at the back, it is doing quite well. The only thing left is the price… It’s quite substantial, but it’s still a real professional blower with unrivaled power!

McCulloch GB 355 BP

Editor’s note: 4 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

mcculloch gb 355bp backpack blowerRemove leaves and dirt scattered around the garden? Nothing could be simpler with this McCulloch thermal leaf blower. Take advantage of its powerful 1500 W 2-stroke engine to make the job easier and the job as comfortable as possible. To protect the user’s back, for example, it has an anti-vibration system, while the harness is adjustable and padded. The weight of the engine is always well distributed at the level of the bag, that is to say between the shoulders and the back, to reduce the difficulty, especially during prolonged use. The position of the handle is also adjustable, the trigger allows you to maintain speed without having to get too tired, and the device obviously offers various blowing speeds depending on the situation (with a speed of up to 355 km/h) .

My opinion : Do you have a lot of land and to help you in your task, are you looking for a powerful leaf blower at an attractive price? Look no further, this McCulloch is for me one of the best in terms of value for money. With a 2-stroke engine instead of 4-stroke as in professional machines, we feel that the power of the breath is not the same, but for personal use, even semi-professional, it is more than enough. It does its job very well, and has no problem sweeping up wet leaves, the ones you find the most in the fall. Another small downside: it’s quite noisy, so I advise you to invest in good noise-canceling headphones. But on the other hand, he knows how to be quite light on his back and that’s a great point!

Ryobi RBL42BP

Editor’s note: 4 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

ryobi rbl42bp backpack blowerEquipped with a semi-pro PoWR XT motor, this Ryobi will have no problem blowing away leaves and debris to get rid of anything that gets in the way of a clean yard! Quite powerful, its blow tube is also uniquely designed, with a curve to reduce air resistance and promote speed. A variable speed drive is also present for perfect control and, thanks to a 3-position choke, starting is very simple, without the risk of stalling the engine. The little extra of this backpack blower is that the brand has equipped it with an ergonomic harness, with extreme padding and a ventilated back: the distribution of weight and heat is ideal to promote comfort when blowing. blowing. The device is also quite light with its 8.2 kg, which allows you to work without getting tired too quickly!

My opinion : As I explained in the previous model, 2-stroke engines are less powerful than 4-strokes, but when the blower is not intended for professional use, it is more than enough. This is still the case for the device offered here by Ryobi, which also has another major argument: it is available for less than 250 €! If your budget is quite limited, I’d say it’s a good option, especially since it holds up pretty well. Although I felt like it used a little more gas than other models, it is quite powerful and has no problem blowing leaves and peeling them when wet. And I also liked that it’s not too heavy: it makes it almost comfortable to wear!

vidaXL

Editor’s note: 4 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

vidaxl backpack thermal blowerVidaXL has chosen the thermal blower rather than professional devices that are not easily accessible to the general public. Here, you don’t need to be used to transporting heavy gear because at only 6.5 kg, it’s one of the lightest on the market. The back does not suffer (notably because the shoulder straps are wide and padded) and the maintenance of the garden is done in a very practical way. And you don’t have to know the mechanics either, because the control handle can be easily moved with your thumb and, thanks to an adjustable air outlet, breathing is directed where it’s needed. This blast of air is also powerful and with its high speed it is ideal for blowing and picking up all the dead leaves to collect and dispose of them. At 108 dB, it’s ultimately not the loudest, even if wearing headphones is always recommended!

My opinion : Light, handy and economical, that’s how you could describe this backpack blower! It really racks up the right points, and not just at the price point that sits below the €150 mark: it’s, for example, easy to start, doesn’t hurt your back and has no trouble steal the leaves lying around from right to left. right to left in the garden. So yes, obviously, for this price, it’s not the most powerful you can find, and with its 1.2L tank, it doesn’t have the autonomy to clean hectares of green spaces! But whether it’s for your terrace, your driveway or even your small garden, it will suffice and do the job perfectly. This is a good option for tight budgets!
