3 Recommended Petrol Blowers & Vacuums for Autumn 2017

Well here we are – almost Autumn – and if you’re anything like us here at Just Lawnmowers then you are already lamenting the shorter days, the slight chill in the air and the damp mornings.

The majority of gardeners love and loathe each season for various reasons. Personally I love a good autumn bonfire, it quite literally feels like I am making a fresh start in the garden and all that debris that was building up is gone in a puff of smoke, all it takes is an afternoon and a bit of patience. At my son’s insistence we check for hedgehogs, small rodents etc before we light the first (bit sometimes not the last!) match.

Even if you’re not lighting a bonfire yourself somewhere in the neighbourhood you may catch the smell of someone else’s and suddenly your memory conjures up fireworks, conkers, hot dogs and cold misty days. I love days like this. Some gardeners hate the mess the Autumn brings, the leaves all over the lawn, the debris and the general messiness of the garden as plants fade and die. But we are of course on hand to help and here at Just Lawnmowers we stock all kinds of garden machinery, to deal with everything the seasons put us through. And at this time of year our garden vacs and leaf blowers especially, are quite literally flying off the shelves.

So if you are thinking of buying a new one or getting one for the first time our handy reviews of 3 garden blowers and vacs may give you some insight into what you should be looking for before you purchase one.
