8 alternative jobs for your leaf blower
When the nights draw in and the temperature drops, it can feel like a chore to keep your garden looking its best in the ongoing battle with fallen leaves. A garden leaf blower, like our LawnMaster® 60V Max Blower makes this task quick and simple. Read on if you’re considering owning one but aren’t quite sure you’ll get your money’s worth; or you’ve already added one to your garden tool collection and want to make sure you’re getting the most from your investment.
Dried leaves and twigs are the perfect fuel for a controlled bonfire in colder, damper climates. Use your leaf blower to collect your leaves and garden debris into neat pile- in literally minutes. If the weather is working against you, employ your leaf blower as a bellow to blow some life into your fire Obviously, we can’t stress enough that this must only be undertaken with caution. And don’t forget to check for any wildlife which may have crawled into your pile to make a warm bed!
If the leaves are really sodden, then it’s probably best to use them for mulching or composting instead.
A leaf blower can be useful all year round when it comes to maintaining your car. Once winter has truly set in, you can save time on cold, dark mornings by using your leaf blower to blast any light snow from the roof or windscreen, getting you on the road quickly and safely.
When the weather is warmer and it’s time to give your car a spring clean, all those difficult to reach nooks and crevices which fill with dust and debris at an alarming rate can be blown clean in no time. From the grills, dashboard, steering wheel and gear stick, to your pedals, handles, boot interior and speakers, the dust and crumbs can be dislodged in minutes. Just make sure that there are no loose items which could be blown away!
Once the interior has been taken care of and the paintwork has been cleaned of dirt and grime, use your leaf blower to dry off any water droplets, all that’s left is to finish the job is a wax!
OUTSIDE – BUT NOT THE GARDEN!
Once you’re ready to blow winter away and make sure your home is ready for the lighter, warmer days, then your leaf blower can be invaluable.
Clearing debris from a conservatory roof, clearing your gutters, blowing out cobwebs and dust from a garage or workspace or drying a fresh coat of paint are just some of the tasks that can be made easier and more efficient with the assistance of your leaf blower.
Inside your home, vacuum cleaner filters and extractor fans can be easily cleared of dust using your leaf blower. Just make sure children, pets and anything loose or valuable is cleared from the area.
