STIHL Leaf Blowers & Vacuums

STIHL Leaf Blowers and Vacuums

While leaf blowers do an excellent job of dispersing stubborn fallen leaves from wide areas in your yard, they can leave quite a mess, especially when dirt and dust get involved. These blowers employ designs with fans that push air out at impressive rates, usually measured in cubic metres per minute. Many of the older designs primarily blow leaves away, while some modern units are multifunction tools that can perform vacuuming functions as well.

Blower Types

The several types of leaf blowers include backpack, handheld, and walk behind, and they may run on battery/electric or petrol. Generally, a leaf blower runs on a petrol engine that propels a fan to move air rapidly outwards. While many designs exist in the range of petrol STIHL leaf blowers and vacuums, one thing they have in common is the way you operate them. You fire up the engine by pulling on the starter cord, pull the trigger gently to rev the motor up, and then start blowing back those pesky leaves.

Blower Vacuums

Blower vacuums are all-in-one tools that can blow leaves away as well as vacuum them in, mulch them, and then place the mulch into a bag for later disposal. These are incredibly useful, so if you’re making your first blower or vacuum purchase, this type would set you up nicely. After the mulch bag is full, you simply dump the contents in a compost barrel or pit, or you can also spread them out onto your garden for a healthy layer of moisture-retaining leaves,

Blower and Vacuum Parts

The components of your blower are bound to take a beating after years of hard use. In such cases, securing the right STIHL leaf blower and vacuum parts is a good way to keep your machine in good working condition. In particular, while switches are built for repetitive use, some can break prematurely. You can buy an inexpensive replacement stop switch when needed. Moreover, nozzles are versatile and swappable, so if you bought your blower secondhand, purchasing different nozzles is a good way to make yours more versatile.
