Best Leaf Blowers at Home Depot, Lowe's, and Walmart
You’ll find top models from CR’s tests at these retailers
A leaf blower isn't just an essential tool for sweeping leaves each autumn. It's equally helpful for clearing grass clippings and fallen flowers in spring and summer.
But the pandemic has taken a serious toll on supply chains, and it's no longer a given that you can find great options everywhere. Everything from decking lumber to appliances has become scarce. So it's not a bad idea to think broadly (and turn to multiple retailers) when you shop.
Home Depot, Lowe’s, and Walmart sell more than 60 percent of all leaf blowers, so naturally, they're three of the top places to look. But each also has something unique to offer.
“Lowe’s, Home Depot, and Walmart have leaf blower inventories that are quite different from one another,” says Courtney Pennicooke, CR’s market analyst for leaf blowers. “This really isn’t a category where you can find the same tools at every retailer for a similar price. There’s only a small amount of overlap.”
