Paper or plastic? Mac or PC? The choice between gas leaf blowers and electric leaf blowers may not have reached the epic proportions of those first two dueling duos, but it is, nevertheless, a choice you have to make when shopping for leaf blowers.
Keep in mind, however, that electric leaf blowers are more diverse than their gas counterparts. There are corded as well as cordless electric leaf blowers from which to choose; a cordless example is the Black & Decker NS118. So gas leaf blowers hold no monopoly when it comes to ease in portability.
Consult my review of gas leaf blowers for some pointers. If you need help deciding which type of leaf blower is right for you, my take on the gas versus electric debate may help you choose.
