With a leaf vacuum, cleaning your garden has never been easier. But how do you go about getting one that will do the job just right? In this post, we’ll outline some of the key factors to consider so you can ensure your garden is always mess free, even during fall.
One of the first thing you should think about is whether to get a wired, wireless or petrol option. An electric leaf vacuum is ideal for small areas. Although are lightweight as compared to petrol options, they don’t provide as much power. Since wired models may restrict your movement, a better option may be wireless leaf vacuum. On the down side, depending on the size of the area you are working on, you may have to recharge the vacuum. If you’re working on larger area, a petrol powered model may be the best option as it provides you with more power and allows you to cover more ground quickly. They are also easy to manoeuvre and can run for a long time.
You should also consider the suction speed and power. You can tell how powerful a leaf vacuum is by the speed at which air is suctioned into the unit and through the tube as well as the amount of air that moves through the vacuum in the span of 60 seconds. The two important numbers to look out for in the product description are the MPH and CFM. Another important factor to consider when shopping for a leaf vacuum is the size and comfort. When it comes to size, you need to think about the size of the area you will be clearing as well as the size of the machine. Typically, the large the area, the larger the machine and this affect comfort. To ensure your comfort if you end up getting a larger model, consider getting straps or a push/pull vacuum that is fitted to a cart.
