In comparison tests, this three-in-one yard tool outranked all of its closest rivals to earn a Best "strong" rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute for ease of leaf vacuuming and blowing. This all-inclusive "strong" unit consists of a leaf blower/vacuum and leaf shredder. Ease of blowing was tested first; each unit was used to remove leaves, twigs and yard clippings of various sizes from around trees, off of sidewalks, driveways and open lawns. To adequately evaluate ease of vacuuming, the vacuum attachments were used to remove piles of leaves, twigs, and grass clippings to be shredded for mulch. This model surpassed all others tested for blowing and vacuuming power. It also earned a Best rating for its quiet operation. One unit tested had a noise level that exceeded 90 decibels. It is documented by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders that prolonged exposure to noise levels above 90 decibels can cause gradual hearing loss. This leaf blower has a noise level lower than 85 decibels</strong> (below 85 dB is a level considered to be safe for ears). It delivers a 210-mph air blast that has an adjustable volume and speed to set air flow for fast or slow. Unit is powered by a 12-amp motor. Plugs into a standard household outlet. ABS plastic construction. 12 1/2" H x 38" W x 9" D.
