Hey, I have recently shifted to the USA. In my home, there are a few huge trees. I was thinking to buy a leaf blower for better and easy sanitation. But I was reading somewhere that leaf blowers are banned in few states of the USA due to their bad noise. I am living in Arizona so I want to confirm that are leaf blowers really banned in Arizona or not? can Someone confirm about it?
I also want your suggestion about the best leaf blower what is best for home users?

If they are banned anywhere in the US it will only be by a local ordinance. There is no state wide ban. Just check with the city cops.

Chuck is right, but out of curiosity I google'd part of your title and came up with this page.


BTW, the leaf blowers that operate off an internal combustion engine are very loud, but I have two leaf blowers, one battery operated and the other uses a power cord (120 VAC). The power cord one is the loudest, but still not nearly as loud as the more powerful combustion engine type -- those are extremely loud.

I can't say if they are banned but probably in places like California they could be. Everything is banned there. I wouldn't get anything but a good gas one. Electric or battery-operated just aren't strong enough to move heavy leaves. They are good for things like blowing out the garage. With mine, I'm able to move piles of leaves, not just what's laying on the ground.

We have one, we use it, no issues here. Perhaps its the time of day? Ours is electric. I also see commercial companies use those big square blowers in business areas. Have no idea the best one. the one we have works well, light enough for me.

I like the Echo brand. I've had mine for over 15 years and never had a problem with it. Husqvarna makes a good one too.

I have a Husky brand for home use.
I have a curb side picked Craftsman that needed a carb cleaning that rides in my truck. Use it to blow off the mowers after use before I load up that way I don't take Chucks weed seeds to Rons place. the craftsman has handy handles on it.

The important thing is to get something that will do the job 100% of the time. If it's too small or underpowered then when you need it won't be up to the task. If it's not up to the task then you have thrown your money away because you could have done the easy stuff by hand.
