This was the most powerful blower we tested but also the heaviest at 10.2 pounds.

A standout for power at a low price, the Sun Joe is great for clearing away grass clippings and light leaf accumulation in garden areas, sidewalks, and garages.

In our test runs, this blower worked very well for dry leaves and grass clippings on hard surfaces or mowed grass but less so with wet leaves and debris among taller grass.

The kit came with a pair of swappable nozzles to narrow the focus of the airflow for heavy leaves, grass, and other garden debris.

In our testing, the blower performed well on both hard and grassy surfaces.

It cleared wet and dry leaves well but seemed to take a bit longer to do so.

It worked well on hard surfaces with dry material and around obstacles like potted plants and outdoor furniture.

Keep the yard clean without worrying about neighborhood noise restrictions with the Makita cordless leaf blower.

It comes with swappable nozzles and an adjustable discharge tube.
