This wiki has been updated 21 times since it was first published in August of 2017. When the seasons change and the foliage begins to fall on and around your property, one of these electric leaf blowers can help you power through all those leaves, twigs, and other debris. We've included corded and battery-operated models with dependable motors designed to quickly clear backyards, decks, driveways, garages, patios, and sidewalks without resorting to a manual rake.

Editor's Notes

July 16, 2020:

Whether you choose to keep a property up on your own or pay a professional to get the job done, there's more to yard work and landscaping than just trimming or mowing. Depending on the season and number of trees around, you'll probably see a lot of dead foliage that needs to be removed. The last thing you want to do is spend hours trying to sweep up all that debris away.

Our list of electric leaf blowers gives you the efficiency and power needed to complete cleanup jobs with minimal fanfare. While they're great for use in driveways, backyards, and on pathways, some of our models are quiet enough to be used in confined spaces like garages or indoor workshops as well.

We've added the Makita XBU02PT1 for its protective inner seal, as I think it's important for a tool like this to have a way of diverting dust and water away from its most sensitive components. This one is also equipped with a dedicated fan to keep its battery cool while it's charging.

Both the Ego Power+ LB5804 and Husqvarna 320IB operate quietly, the former of which comes with both flat and tapered nozzles while the latter features a convenient push-button start and intuitive cruise control when concentrated blowing is required.

We also feel it's important to provide models capable of performing more than just one function, hence our inclusion of the Toro UltraPlus and Black+Decker BV6000. The Toro model may resemble a bellows, but it's quite a bit more powerful and works to reduce mulch volume down to a minimum. Additionally, its oscillating nozzle kit can automatically sweep air back and forth, which eliminates the need to perform those motions yourself over a wide path of land.

Finally, the durable and dust-resistant design of the DeWalt DWBL700 makes it a worthy option for use at industrial job sites, assuming you're close to an electric outlet.

Airflow matters when it comes to blowers, so you'll want to pay attention to air volume, measured in cubic feet per minute (CFM), and air speed, measured in MPH. High speed but low volume tends to scatter leaves, while high volume but low speed takes you longer to do the job. Two of our top selections, the Worx Turbine 600 and the Greenworks Pro have a good balance of volume and speed to help you move a lot of debris in short order.

Special Honors

Cyclone Rake Commercial Pro If you live on a very large property and need something to help stay ahead of all that debris, the Cyclone Rake Commercial Pro is definitely worthy of consideration as a companion to your electric leaf blower. Designed as a leaf and lawn vacuum, it uses a powerful Briggs and Stratton engine to deliver over nine foot-pounds of torque, while its five-bladed impeller generates up to 25 percent more vacuum power than its competition, making it well suited for clearing large paths with deeply-embedded leaves and wet grass. Its 415-gallon debris capacity holds the equivalent of more than twelve 32-ounce mulch barrels.
