Best Ways to Use Your Cordless Leaf Blower During Summer

Best Ways to Use Your Cordless Leaf Blower During Summer

A cordless leaf blower can take a lot of the work out of clearing leaves from your garden. But while collecting leaves might be the first thing you think of when it comes to using an electric leaf blower, there is no reason to leave this outdoor power tool in the shed until autumn. With a little imagination, you can find several ways to use your battery-powered leaf blower during your summer garden maintenance.

When it comes down to it, a leaf blower moves air, and that airflow can be used for a wide range of purposes. In this post, we are going to look at some of the ways you can use your cordless leaf blower this summer. These include garden maintenance tasks such as cleaning your garden, garage, shed, or gutters, drying your car, or maintaining your other outdoor power tools.

Clear Your Garden with a Cordless Leaf Blower

Leaf blowers are designed to collect leaves, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t be used to clear other types of debris from the garden as well. Even during summer, you might have some fallen leaves or small sticks that accumulate in the garden. Storms and windy weather can cause all sorts of debris to land in the garden. You might also leave a lot of debris behind after using outdoor power equipment such as hedge trimmers.

You could always clean this garden debris up by hand, but a tool like the WORX TURBINE 20V Cordless Blower makes the work easier. Its lightweight, two-speed design makes it easy to handle while tackling various outdoor jobs, with a hyper-stream air nozzle for extra tough conditions.

Cleaning Your Garage or Shed

If you are planning to clean your garage or shed, your cordless leaf blower can help. Once you have most of the space empty, you can grab your leaf blower to clear out all of the dust and dirt. It will make cleaning the floors easier and you can also use the air to remove cobwebs from the high corners of the garage or shed.

Clean Up Grass Trimmings

If you don’t like leaving leftover grass trimmings in your garden, you can use a cordless leaf blower to collect the trimmings when you are done mowing. Much in the same way that you would use this piece of outdoor power equipment to collect leaves, you can use it to move grass trimmings into a pile, then put them in a bag for collection.

Drying Your Car

Washing your car can get your car looking nice, but you need to dry it to achieve that spot-free finish. You could get a towel to dry your car by hand, but your cordless leaf blower could do the work even faster. Just start at the top and work your way down to get your car looking like new once you’ve finished washing it.

Cleaning Outdoor Power Tools with a Leaf Blower

It doesn’t take long for outdoor power equipment to get dirty. Whether it is dusty from being in the shed for a long time or dirty after a long day of gardening work, you can use your electric leaf blower to clean your outdoor power tools. No matter how your tool is powered or whether it’s corded or cordless, your leaf blower makes it easy to keep them clean.

A cordless leaf blower can be one of the most versatile outdoor tools you own. Even apart from collecting leaves, it can be used to clear your garden of other types of debris and make a range of outdoor chores easier. You just need to use a little bit of imagination and always remember to follow the safety precautions for using your leaf blower. Shop our range of cordless leaf blowers here.
