Characteristics in the rating
“Are you still cleaning up the trash with a rake? Then we’re coming to you! “and I want to recite this “legendary” advertising slogan, slightly remaking it for the garden theme that interests us. Of course, if you are an ardent supporter of physical labor, and, most importantly, have a small territory with a small number of plantings in use, it is quite possible to eliminate fallen leaves, dry stems and branches after pruning by hand. But the owners of a large allotment in any case, it is more convenient to clean up organic litter with the help of mechanized devices-garden vacuum cleaners, sometimes also called “blowers”for the principle of operation.

The main criteria for getting into our rating were the performance of the unit, its economy, reliability and functionality. For complete objectivity, we not only studied information from official sources of manufacturers, but also analyzed the reviews of real customers who have already managed to evaluate the quality of this type of equipment in practice.
TOP 5 best garden vacuum cleaners
All garden vacuum cleaners for private use are divided into three types-these are electric models, battery devices and devices that run on gasoline. Each option has its own advantages and disadvantages, so you should choose a particular model only based on your individual requirements and capabilities.

- Quiet operation – 75 dB at maximum mode.
- Short power cord (2 m), which limits the cleaning radius;
- During prolonged use, the housing may become very hot.
The Bort BSS-600-R model is very popular not only for its technical features, but mainly for its affordable price, which in most stores does not exceed 2000-2300 rubles. At such an affordable price, this device perfectly copes with the tasks set, providing a high class of cleaning, comparable to the results of using professional cleaning equipment.
4 GreenWorks GD40BV
The next participant in our review is the battery-powered 2-in-1 greenworks GD40BV handheld device. Such models are most often chosen by owners of small house plots, gardens and vegetable gardens that need to be cleaned of small debris in the shortest possible time. Despite its mobility and small dimensions, the device has all the advantages of full-fledged garden vacuum cleaners – there is a bag for collecting garbage, there is a choice of speed from 6 suggested ones, and sharp steel knives for crushing are installed inside the case.

3 Husqvarna 125 BVx
The convenient Husqvarna 125 BVx petrol model provides a powerful air flow for blowing over large polluted areas and perfectly sucks up street litter in the vacuum cleaner mode. Complete with the unit itself is a set of different pipes, as well as a bag for collecting crushed garbage, a screwdriver wrench for quick repairs and a carrying strap on the shoulder. According to user reviews, the device quickly sweeps away not only fallen leaves, but also branches and small stones from the ground, and when switching to suction, it easily processes even solid natural elements – cones, acorns, etc. It is also effective for cleaning soot from chimneys of stovepipes.
