Although this time of year is a very pretty sight with the leaves turning beautiful shades of red, orange and yellow, they can quickly fall and become a mushy mess on the ground. This slippery blanket across drives, paths and gardens can easily become a hazard. With the top 3 petrol leaf blowers from World of Power below you can quickly and easily disperse these troublesome leaves. Investing in a petrol leaf blower / vacuum can help you quickly clear away unwanted debris without the back breaking work of raking.
Stihl SH86C-E Blower / Vac
The Stihl SH86C-E is one of our top selling garden blower/vacuums. This is a 2-stroke machine with a 2-mix engine allowing a fuel saving of up to 20% compared to the standard Stihl 2-stroke engine. The Stihl SH86C-E includes the Stihl ElastoStart re-coil starter. This starter ensures a jerk free starting method together with a manual fuel pump which reduces the number of starting pulls. This model is supplied with a vacuum kit to allow you to collect the leaves easily once you have blown them into a pile.
The Makita BHX2501 is a 4-stroke petrol blower. This means that you save around 40% on fuel usage compared to a standard 2-stroke machine. The 4-stroke engine is also quieter and has fewer emissions so is better for the environment. This is a bonus if you are using the blower in residential areas. A vac kit is available to purchase alongside this model. The BHX2501 comes with a 1 year commercial warranty, making it the ideal choice for landscape gardeners. I’m happy to say I’ve sold this model to a bee keeper, who will be using it to gently move the bees away whilst he collects their valuable nectar.
The Husqvarna 125BVX has been a popular leaf blower now for many years and has a great reputation as a reliable and hardworking machine.

The round nozzle provides a broader airstream ideal for wider areas. This blower is also available without vacuum function as the Husqvarna 125b.
