I was wondering if a leaf blower will have enough power to clean a riding mower after you use it. I am wanting a blower to blow off the deck and porch but I also want one with enough power to blow off the riding mower any suggestions?
I have the Stihl BG85 blower and crazy as it sounds, I use the blower to clear the snow from my driveway and sidewalks. I love the silly looks from the neighbors, but it works and that is all that matters. I imagine it would work just fine to blow off your mower. I also use it to dry off my mower after it gets a bath....
Well, you can figure that the more powerful the blower, the better off you'll be for blowing dirt out of your mower. A handheld blower probably works fine for dusting off the deck, but may lack the power for much more. But even a backpack blower isn't going to do the job that a pressure washer could do.
Since I don't have a pressure washer, I use my backpack blower most of the time, and then for tough areas I use an air compressor with a high pressure nozzle.
