Used Leaf Blowers
One would think that leaf blowers get the most work during the fall, but actually leaf blowers are used throughout the year for more than just blowing leaves.
Many landscaping companies use industrial leaf blowers like Stihl every day to blow the grass and dirt from sidewalks after they have mowed a lawn. Stihl industrial leaf blowers are one of the most widely used types among landscaping companies and they can be expensive new. Many times, you can find one used that is in great shape in an online auction and save a good chuck of money.
If you take care of your equipment and service it regularly, it will last you a long time and provides years of service.
Leaf blowers were invented in the late 1050s and were actually part of a chemical sprayer used in agriculture. Many users ended up removing the chemical part of the blower and used it instead to blow dust and stuff off of items. Manufacturing companies picked up on this and started producing leaf blowers without the chemical setups and sold them as a lawn or garden maintenance tool.
With cities cracking down on carbon emissions, many of the home leaf blowers are powered with electricity. These are virtually the same as the gas powered models except the usage area is limited to the length of the extension cord so many professional landscape companies us gas leaf blowers to provide the freedom to move the property without worrying about the extension cord.
