Sun, rain or storm: When are the conditions best?
Not every day and every weather is suitable for working with a leaf blower. To help you control where to blow the leaves, there should be as little wind as possible outside.
Ideal conditions are when the last rain shower was a few days ago and the leaves are no longer wet, as wet leaves are more difficult to move. Dry days with little wind – these are the perfect conditions for working with the cordless leaf blower!
Noise guidelines and working hours: When are you allowed to use the leaf blower?
Admittedly, leaf blowers are not necessarily the quietest of garden tools. With cordless leaf blowers, you work at a much lower noise level than with petrol leaf blowers, but you still have to comply with the Equipment and Machinery Noise Protection Ordinance in Germany. In addition, your home municipality is allowed to impose additional quiet periods, so you should also check for these before you reach for the leaf blower!
The Equipment and Machinery Noise Protection Ordinance completely prohibits the use of noisy equipment on Sundays and public holidays. However, on working days you are allowed to use them from 9am to 1pm and 3pm to 5pm. If you also pay attention to the right weather conditions, nothing stands in the way of getting to work!
Depending on where you live, there are certain times when you are not allowed to use your leaf blower.
