Yard maintenance can feel like you’re required to purchase a seemingly endless list of tools, like hedge trimmers, aerators, wood chippers and dethatching rakes. That list gets smaller when you snag a tool that tackles acts as a double-duty investment. Adding attachments to your leaf blower can help your leaf blower work harder for you, and a few quick tips will maximize its performance.
Worx Leaf Collection Bag
One of the easiest accessory upgrades for your leaf blower is adding an additional leaf collection bag to your stash. This hardy bag will take many loads of leaves and debris, and can save you time by letting you fill up a bag and swap it out for this new one. Plus, it lets you carry on with the work at hand. These bags make disposing of leaves to the curb or to the compost bin fast and easy.
Ego AN5300 Flat Blower Nozzle
The shape of a leaf blower’s nozzle has a direct impact on its performance. Just like the adjustable stream of a garden sprayer is better suited for different tasks, that’s the case with the end of a blower. Round nozzles put air down on a wider area while flat ends, such as this Ego AN5300 Flat Blower Nozzle, are best for maximizing distribution, making them a match for light, dry leaves.
Oscillating Nozzle Ends
Can’t get enough nozzle end options? You’re our kind of DIYer! Using a leaf blower involves a lot of repetitive wrist movements as you “sweep” the leaves in front of your path. The Toro Oscillating Nozzle Kit is a smart leaf solution that uses the force of the blower itself to change the air’s direction. You simply walk forward and the nozzle does the sweeping motion for you.
Disposable Leaf Collection Bags
If you absolutely hate emptying collection bags, you can opt for disposable leaf collection bags. Simply fill them up and drop them straight in the trash. Although more expensive in the long run than reusable bags, these environmentally friendly compostable bags can be a smart choice if you’re dealing with particularly unpleasant material, such as wet or rotting leaves.
Worx Leaf Collection System
Of course, if you’re really serious about eliminating the collection bags, consider the Worx leaf collection system. Designed to fit almost all leaf blower/vacuum combos, this smart system creates a “sweeper” that deposits leaves directly into a waste container. No more emptying countless small bags!
Echo Harness Straps
If you’ve had backpack leaf blower for a few years, bring it back to a more comfortable chore with a set of new harness straps. This two-pack of Echo blower backpack straps only weigh 5.4 ounces, so they won’t add much weight to your machine.
Worx Gutter-Cleaning Kit
One of the most clever ways to stretch a leaf blower’s utility is with a gutter-cleaning kit. Designed to work with most of the best leaf blowers, the Worx gutter cleaner extends the reach of the machine. It comes with a hook nozzle on the end to reach over and around the edge of your gutter.
Toro Shred Ring Kit
Many leaf blower attachments allow your blower to also function as a vacuum, sucking in leaves through the intake while collecting them in a bag. To make the most of a leaf vacuum, many homeowners opt for an accessory, such as this Shredz-All Shred Ring Kit. Designed to fit select Toro leaf blowers, the Shredz-All means less time spent emptying the collection bag.
Worx Seven-Piece Leaf Blower Attachments Kit
While most of the entries on this list allow your leaf blower to work on a bigger scale, some attachments let it scale down. This Worx seven-piece attachment kit is intended for the leaf blower and vacuums to work on a smaller projects, from inflating mattresses to detailing your car’s interior. The value you get with these seven attachments will last you for years to come.
