When there’re leaves on the lawn …
And it don’t look good …
Who you gonna call?


Doesn’t quite have the same ring to it, does it? Ah, well.

In any case, you wouldn’t be blamed for feeling like a bit of a Ghostbuster when strapping on this proton pack leaf blower. Lightweight and easy to handle, the Husqvarna Backpack Blower gets you in the spirit (pun fully intended) to take on fall chores.

Churning at 140 MPH, this leaf blower allows you to round up leaves and blow them onto your neighbor’s property into an easy-to-gather pile quickly and without the physical exertion of raking. This 22.5-lb backpack blower is made with comfort in mind – ergonomic handles and padded harnesses put less strain on hands, arms and shoulders. It’s even easy on your finger – there’s a throttle lock, allowing you to keep the trigger pulled without having to actually hold it in place. Reviews indicate that it’s quite reliable – users generally only have to pull the cord of the motor a couple times to get it up and running.

Although it’s gas-powered, the Husqvarna 356 sports reduced emissions. And, thanks to it’s Ghosbuster-esque enclosed motor assembly, it also has built in noise reduction. Your neighbors will thank you.

The Husqvarna 356 Backpack Blower is available for just under $500 for serious leaf blowing aficionados!
