Environmentally friendly, quiet and emission-free thanks to the battery
Cordless leaf blowers are much more environmentally friendly compared to petrol-powered models. The powerful motor works efficiently without producing exhaust fumes that pollute the environment. Unlike petrol, Power X-Change batteries are reusable. If the battery is empty, simply plug it into any PXC charger, charge it and use it again.
Another big advantage of cordless leaf blowers compared to the petrol device is the low weight. You can also operate the different models ergonomically and without effort with the help of the supplied carrying strap and the guide wheels at the end of the suction tube.
Another important point is the volume. While petrol models are among the noisiest devices, the cordless version works many times quieter. This means that you can vacuum leaves without disturbing your neighbours with unnecessary noise.
What to do with the leaves? - Use as humus by composting
Leaves can be composted down to humus. Thanks to the shredding function of the leaf vacuum, the leaves are shredded and then rot faster and easier. If you combine the leaves with the last lawn cuttings, you will get perfect humus for your garden after about two years.
By the way, the time it takes for the leaves to rot differs depending on the species of tree. The leaves of maple, birch, beech, alder, ash, hazelnut, lime, elm and willow rot quite quickly, while the leaves of oak, poplar, sycamore and walnut, for example, take much longer. Oak leaves, for example, take three to five years to decompose into humus.
In general, however, it makes sense to find out beforehand whether the leaves of your tree are suitable for use as humus, as the leaves of the widespread chestnut tree, for example, should not be composted because a certain species of moth hibernates in them and reproduces in the leaves. So not all leaves can be composted, some you should consistently dispose of. Then it helps that when shredded they take up very little space in the bin!
The leaves can be used perfectly as humus if you compost them first.
