Craftsman Speedstart 25cc Handheld Blower
For the top blower here, the Sears Craftsman 4-Cycle 25cc Handheld Leaf Blower w/ Speed Start Capability gets the nod. The spring assisted starting makes its pull start the easiest of the bunch, and there’s even an optional powered starter attachment for electric start capability. The 150 mph air speed makes for solid blowing duties while the three piece crankshaft engine gives off fewer vibrations than regular crankshafts.
A cruise control setting lets you lock-in the speed of your choice, and it’s also California C.A.R.B compliant for use in all 50 states. The unit weighs about 11 pounds, and it’s covered by a two year warranty. While this blower is on the lower end of the spectrum, it’s a good value for the money and a solid performer as well.
