Corded Blower Vac WORX Trivac WG500

Unlike most blower vacs, there's no need to swap tubes for vacuuming and blowing, since both nozzles are built in—just flip a switch to change modes. Reach is limited by the length of your extension cord, but on the upside, the 12-amp motor will never run out of gas or need a fuel-line flush. Its plastic impeller reduced dry-leaf volume by 10 to 1 but, not surprisingly, struggled with wet ones.

Fine print: Blower speed: 350 cfm at 210 mph, maximum. 70 dB.

About $90, 8.4 pounds;
