TRILO BLOWER BL200

This one is my choice and having seen a Kersten wheeled blower in action and tested Pinnacle's Power Force, I can't wait to put this one through its paces as soon as possible.

The BL200 is a compact machine packed with innovative features. It has a solid undercarriage and, with two large-tyred wheels plus a castor, it looks as though it should be easy to manoeuvre. Weight is 79kg. A special lining around the turbine is described as helping to "reduce the noise substantially" - the recorded level is 106dB(A) - and the long handlebar comes complete with shock absorbers.

The fan housing is mounted slightly offset for efficient working and the exhaust can be turned easily for changing blowing direction to the front or to the left. With all controls within easy reach, this one should be easy to operate.

This unit has a 38cm five-bladed fan and is powered by a 9hp Honda engine. Air speed is recorded at 260km/h.
