The scope of the project will dictate the type of gas leaf blower needed. For instance, clearing leaves from a large parking lot with a portable, hand-held blower is very time consuming. Using a wheeled blower is much faster. You’ll find a range of different wheeled leaf blowers, including the Subaru Hurricane 4-cycle leaf blower, the Optimax 170 CC Little Wonder Blower, the Optimax Little Wonder LC270CS, the Subaru 9 hp Hurricane Pro, and many others.
However, that doesn’t mean that handheld blowers are out of the question. Smaller jobs are ideal for these tools, such as the Echo PB 250LN or the 255LN. There is also the Echo PB-265 backpack leaf blower, and its larger brother, the PB-580t.
