Pros know — if you want to move a lot of leaves and do so quickly, a backpack leaf blower is the way to go.

Typically, these are operated with gas. But if you’re not crazy about the idea of noise, fumes and gas, check out the new Ryobi 40V Lithium-ion Backpack Blower. (This page contains affiliate links.

It’s comfortable to wear, lightweight and at just 59 decibels, this is the quietest backpack leaf blower in the industry.

The Crossforce Fan Technology helps it move 625 cubic feet of air per minute at 145 mph.

And just like the pros, you get features like a variable-speed throttle and cruise control, with convenient operation at your fingertips.

Best of all, you can go the distance because this backpack leaf blower has adjustable shoulder straps and contours that give you comfort and support all day. 

And the included 40-volt 5-amp-hour lithium-ion battery is compatible with all the tools in the Ryobi 40-volt system.
