Why Do You Need Leaf Blowers and Garden Vacs?29 June 2020
To say that all yards are not built the same would be an understatement. Here at Rosebud Saw Service, we have been around the industry long enough to know that each yard has its own special needs. This can be particularly true when leaves begin to fall and the rake just doesn’t feel like it is cutting it anymore. Today, we are going to talk a little bit about leaf blowers and garden vacs. These two tools are immensely helpful for your gardening and landscaping but they are so often overlooked that we felt the need to put them in the highlight case for a moment. We’ll talk about their benefits, styles, and what you can do to get them into your toolbox today.
Garden Vacs and Leaf Blowers
The first thing that you need to realise is that your yard is going to be an important part of your life. Once you decide to ‘get involved’ and start using yard equipment, you are going to find yourself in a world where perfect is sought after and your neighbours will definitely be envious of you. Are you willing to take that plunge? Okay, good. Now, let’s talk about two of the most important tools in your garden toolshed:
Garden Vacs – Garden vacs are incredibly helpful when it comes to curtailing some of the work that is involved during your leaf blowing and leaf collection process. Garden vacs, like the Stihl SH56 Blower Shredder VAC, are designed with the intention of helping you to suck up leaves as you go. Like leaf blowers, garden vacs come in a variety of different styles, shapes, and power-ratings.
Leaf Blowers – The more trees you have, the more important your leaf blower will become. Getting all of your leaves where they need to go is a process that can be cumbersome with a rake but gets exponentially easier with something like the Stihl Blower BR420 by your side.
Picking a Garden Vac & Leaf Blower
Once you’ve decided that a garden vac and leaf blower are right for you, you need to make a few simple decisions by looking at your circumstances. Here are the questions that you need to ask yourself before making a purchase.
1) How large is my yard?
2) What kind of power do I want to use? Electric? Gas? Wired?
3) How heavy will the debris be?
Once you’ve asked and answered those questions, you can begin the process of hunting for the right garden vac and leaf blower for your needs.
