Leaf Blower Basics – Cress Creek Small Engine
A leaf blower is a machine powered by an electric or gasoline engine. It simply directs a flow of air out of a nozzle, making it ideal for clearing away yard debris like leaves, grass, small branches and dirt. Leaf blowers are available in several forms: backpack, handheld, electric, walk behind, or gas powered. Regardless of which type, leaf blowers basically consist of a housing, tubes, an engine and fan.
For operation, the blower’s engine is started up to direct power to the fan. Controlled by a
throttle trigger, the fan pulls air inward through the side of the housing and then directs it
outward through the tubes. To keep your leaf
blower in good condition so it’s ready to clean your yard, keep its air filter clear. It’s also
recommended that you clean the surfaces of the machine and be sure to
check the throttle lock and trigger function so it can function safely. Also, confirm that the stop switch functions correctly, and
that all screws are sufficiently tight. Additional steps you can take to ensure good performance include flushing old gas from the engine monthly, and cleaning the fan blades.
If you are following these basic practices but your leaf blower is still not starting or performing as it should, our techs can fix it for you.
