Leaf blowers produce a lot of noise that might damage your ear drums. They produce about 70 to 75 decibels at a distance of 50 feet, while the norm is 55 decibels. So in this case make sure to protect your ears with earplugs or noise-reducing earphones. Another thing to consider is dust, because leaf blowers stir a massive amount of small particles. You would be surprised, but the American Lung Association estimates that the leaf-blower engines cause more pollution than a car! So caring a mask for safety is really important. Lastly, never ever point the leaf blower at someone, because the force of this device is really unpredictable and can cause a lot of damage!
