Buying any garden power tool can be a challenge because there is so much choice…That’s where I can help.
After extension research, testing and evaluation I have shortlisted what I believe to be the top three garden vacuum and leaf blowers available on the UK market today. They cater for a range of budgets, from the no frills Q Garden QGBV2500 model to the more expensive, petrol powered McCulloch Mac machine.
While looking through the selection I highly recommend that you keep the following thoughts in mind when deciding which leaf blower and garden vacuum most suits your needs:
- What purpose are you getting it for? Leaf blowing, collecting, shredding or a combination
- How often are you going to use it?
- How much maintenance are you happy to carry out, either by yourself or professionally?
McCulloch Mac GBV345
A leaf blower, vacuum and mulching tool rolled into one machine. As you’d expect from this price tool it has a boat load of features and does an excellent job. The only question is, can you afford it!?
Advantages: 3 tools, powerful, anti vibration
Disadvantages: Heavier, higher maintenance costs Read the full review…
Bosch ALS 2500
Produced by reputable Bosch this leaf blower does not disappoint. It blows and vacuums and it’s electric, so nice and quiet and requires much less maintenance compared to petrol machines.
Advantages: Electric, Bosch built
Disadvantages: Questions over build quality but it’s not a high value product. Read the full review…
