On Test – Blower vacs

We help you choose the best blower vacuum for your garden, in this On Test feature.

If you’re looking for ways to make light work of the autumn clear-up, you might be tempted by a blower vacuum. With leaf-fall season upon us, we’ve tested combination garden blowers, with vacuum and shredding facilities, to help you make the best choice. These machines blow leaves, grass and light hedge clippings into a heap, which they then vacuum up and shred into a holding bag.

The products we tested are powered either by petrol engine or electric cable and our comparison test showed that weight and noise levels varied between individual machines, the loudest ones rating at a similar level to a motorbike for noise.
