Blower vac reviews

Our test covers petrol, cordless and electric blowers and blower vacs.

Our expert testers give every blower a thorough workout to help find the models that:
  • are best at blowing and vacuuming
  • are the easiest to use and convert to vacuum
  • which are noisiest.

Our interactive comparison tool helps you find out which models have nose wheels for ease of moving around, which are heaviest and which cordless models have the longest battery life. Our Recommended list will help you see quickly which models come out on top.
