    You’re not going to have to many quiet hand held machines. I give you one example of my own experience. <br>My Toro backpack blower will produce a max of 62 decibels at 50 ft while my little hand held Echo blower is rated at 67 decibels at 50 ft. Just because of smaller size doesn't mean the machine will be less nosier. The only way to eliminate noise is to use electric machines, if you’re a pro, not practical. That's why you pass out the earplugs.<br>Jean<p><p>----------<br>J-LC Landscaping & Maintenance Gardening<br>C-27 Ca Contr# 770044
