Milwaukee M18 FUEL Cordless Handheld Blower + Kit
This handheld leaf blower is part of the company’s M18 system, which means it is fully compatible with the company’s Red Lithium 8.0Ah 18-volt batteries.
The blower can clear debris from 15 feet, achieve maximum power output in less than a second and claims to be four pounds lighter than competitors, which is key in reducing hand fatigue. Its variable speed trigger allows users to toggle between the highest and lowest power settings, and it can lock on full throttle to further reduce fatigue in the operating hand. Lastly, Milwaukee’s brushless Powerstate motor delivers 450 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) and tops out at 120 MPH.
Why We Love It: Milwaukee’s interchangeable M18 lithium-ion batteries power more than 200 tools across its line of products, and this blower is a great entry point into that environment. It is tremendously popular with consumers, earning a five-star rating from 91 percent of those who own it. The kit includes the blower, high-output batter and a rapid charging station. It normally retails for $300 but for a limited time has been reduced to $250, a 17 percent discount.

Ryobi 40-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Backpack Blower
Ryobi’s backpack blower is part of the company’s super-quiet “Whisper Series,” which keeps the kids and neighbors happy. At 59 decibels, the company claims it is the quietest backpack model in the industry. The 40-volt lithium-ion battery packs a heck of a punch by delivering 625 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) and topping out at 145 MPH.
Backpack style blowers are built for comfort by distributing the blower’s weight evenly and offering support no matter how long you work. Variable speed and cruise control provide additional ease of use for even the largest of projects. Ryobi’s 40V battery system is also compatible with 40 other tools across its line of products.
Why We Love It: We love when manufacturers stand behind their products, and the Ryobi blower is backed by a five-year warranty. More than 78 percent of consumers gave this blower four or five stars, suggesting there’s a lot to love here. It normally retails for $269 but has been reduced to $239, or 11 percent off.
