This lightweight, easy-to-use leaf blower 'has amazing power,' and it's down to just $45

We're less than two weeks from the official start of spring! Many people are already putting plants in the ground and prepping their garden beds for a whole lot of planting. Just one problem: all those fallen leaves that we forgot to rake up during winter? Yeah, they're still around. The Kimo Cordless Leaf Blower can help take care of that pesky yard work. It's lightweight and, most importantly, affordable.

At just 2.8 pounds, clearing all those leaves from your yard will be much less of a pain in the back.

Why is this a good deal?

A quick search for leaf blowers will reveal quite a few options, but not many will pop up that's as well-priced as this one. It's marked down by 25% — $45 from $60 — and comes quite highly reviewed. It's also the lowest price this particular leaf blower has ever been.

Why do I need this?

Leaf blowers make raking a thing of the past, but many models are heavy, require corded power, blow off noxious exhaust, or suffer from any number of other inconveniences. The Kimo offers a lightweight, clean-running, cordless alternative that makes tackling the peskiest of yard chores a breeze.

Weighing in at 2.8 pounds, the Kimo Leaf Blower is the welterweight champion of yard tools. It blows air at around 170 miles per hour. For reference, the much higher-priced Black and Decker leaf blower has an air speed of only 125 miles per hour. The Kimo is also quiet-ish — while you'll definitely hear it, it clocks in at 70 decibels. That's roughly the same volume as a washing machine.

You'll get around half an hour of usage per charge. That might not sound like a lot, but 170 miles per hour of wind over half an hour will let you move a huge amount of leaves with minimal effort.

What reviewers say

"Two years later, and this is one of the most useful yard maintenance tools I own!" said a long-term devotee. "I waited to leave a review to see if the battery would keep going and it sure has! I use this tool almost daily and typically only need to charge on the weekend. I ended up buying one for a family member too. Highly recommend! Great value for the money too!"

"Nice, lightweight and enough power!" said one fan. "We're both 77 years old, so we're pleased that this blower is lightweight and has enough power with no cord to drag around."

"This tiny, light blower has amazing power! Recommended these to all our friends," shared another.

One user even said it's the "best tool since the bread slicer." She goes on to say, "I'm in love with this leaf blower. I have two friends ordering one each as we're all old ladies who need the helping hand."

Still another shopper answered the question we all were asking, "This blows away the competition!" They added, "I would not hesitate to buy this product again and highly recommend it if you are looking for a lightweight, powerful leaf blower!"

"I use it much more frequently than the corded leaf blower because it is so easy. I was concerned about the on/off switch not locking down but it has not been a problem," wrote one reviewer. "Downside is that replacement batteries seem to be unavailable and are pricey."

At just 2.8 pounds, clearing all those leaves from your yard will be much less of a pain in the back.
