Battery VS Electric VS Gas Differences in Prices
As newer leaf blower models have rolled out, we’ve seen a rise in both electric and battery powered products.
Regardless, it seems that customers enjoy the good old fashioned gas blowers (even though they aren’t as good for the environment.)
Gas blowers are by far the most powerful blowers you can purchase. Not to mention they run for much longer than some of these battery powered models.
All being said, you can expect a STIHL gas blower to cost you $200+ for handheld and upwards of $600 for professional backpack models.
For a battery powered blowers, the price varies much more. You can buy a cheaper, less powerful battery blower for as little as $120 but spend as much as $650 for top of the line models.
STIHL does not offer many electric blowers, but of the ones they do, they are not at all pricey at all. $140 is the most you can expect to spend on an electric STIHL leaf blower.
How Much Should I Pay for a Leaf Blower?
It depends on your budget and your job.
If you’re a licensed company who does garden and lawn care, you’re going to spend a lot more on a blower than a homeowner who routinely uses one once a week.
For contractors and garden care workers, spending $500 per blower is not uncommon. Look into a powerful BR 700X that retails for $549.
If you’re just a homeowners who only needs regular maintenance for your own property, spending $250 on a blower is perfectly in range.
