With fall around the corner, now’s a good time to start preparing for what’s to come: cooler temperatures, delicious coffee, and dropping foliage. As beautiful as it is to witness trees shedding their leaves, it can be a real mess, which is why we recommend leaf blowers in all their practicality. These devices can quickly clear paths, driveways, and lawns, allowing you to gather fallen leaves into manageable piles. If you don’t yet own one, Amazon is offering discounts on two Ego Power+ models, including 33 percent off the LB5804 56-Volt Cordless Leaf Blower.
Ego makes our favorite leaf blower, and based on their specs, these models on sale aren’t far behind that standout. The Power+ LB5804 56-Volt Cordless Leaf Blower offers an air speed of 168 miles per hour and a rating of 580 cubic feet per minute. That’s enough to tackle medium and large lawns. And the leaf blower can last up to 75 minutes with a fully charged 5.0 amp-hour battery, according to the brand. Sure enough, your purchase comes with a 5.0 amp-hour battery and charger; the charger can juice the included battery in as little as 100 minutes.
The LB5804 also offers a turbo boost button for a maximum power of 580 cubic feet per minute and a variable speed trigger to control the air power, depending on how much pressure you apply.
Amazon is also offering 29 percent off the LB6150 56-Volt Cordless Leaf Blower, bringing the price down from $169. Like the LB5804, this model has a turbo button with a rating of 615 cubic feet per minute, making it more equipped to effectively move heavier debris—good for when the rainy season comes, and you need to clear walkways. You can get up to 75 minutes on a single charge with a 2.5 amp-hour battery. Unfortunately, this model doesn’t come with a battery or charger, so you must buy those accessories separately.
Clearing leaves around your property is an unglamorous part of home ownership and a downside of fall. But a leaf blower can make the task somewhat fun—or, at the very least, much quicker than using a rake. So before the leaves start changing, save money on these leaf blowers from Ego and use the extra cash to splurge on something you can set up in your newly cleared yard, like a smokeless fire pit.
