  • Relatively quiet for a blower, with no hearing protection needed while operating.
  • Fairly quiet when heard from a distance, a plus for relations with neighbors.
  • Has more than one speed for better control in tight areas.
  • The blowing speed can be fixed, sometimes only at the highest setting, so you need not hold the trigger constantly during operation.
