The 7 Best Leaf Vacuums – Guidebook

Gardening can be very tiring and exhausting. This can be remedied: for example, by a new leaf vacuum cleaner. This is almost impossible to imagine gardening without.

We help you with a checklist and specific product recommendations to find the right leaf vacuum for you.

Checklist For Leaf Vacuum Cleaner

Types
  • You have a choice between gasoline, electric and cordless leaf vacuums.
  • Gasoline and battery -powered leaf vacuums operate cordlessly. They offer you more flexibility.
  • Electric vacuum cleaners must be connected to the mains. For large gardens, you may need an extension cord.
  • Most cordless vacuums have a battery life of 30 minutes to an hour. If you want to work longer, an additional battery is useful.
  • Among the gasoline vacuum cleaners you will find the highest suction power.
  • Electric and battery-powered vacuum cleaners, on the other hand, are more environmentally friendly because they do not generate exhaust fumes.
Suction Power
  • For large gardens and areas, your leaf vacuum cleaner should offer a suction power of 1000 cubic meters per hour.
  • Leaf vacuums with high suction power also collect wet leaves effectively.
Catch Bag
  • For the sidewalk in front of the house, collection bags of 30-40 liters are sufficient.
  • For large gardens you need a catch bag of 60-70 liters or more.
Volume
  • For a pleasant working environment and the lowest possible noise pollution, look for devices below 90 decibels.
  • Ear protection is still useful and should be purchased with the leaf vacuum.
Functions
  • Shredding function: The vacuumed leaves are additionally shredded.
  • Leaf blower: You can switch between the leaf suction and leaf blower function.
Blower Speed
  • Good devices work with a blower speed of 250 kilometers per hour or more.
Weight and Handling
  • Especially for large areas, your leaf vacuum should be lightweight and easy to maneuver. Look for devices with ergonomic handles and weights under 3.5 kilograms.
  • It is an advantage if the collection bag can be strapped to your back.
