3-in-1 combi device: Shredder, leaf vacuum and leaf blower in one
The cordless leaf vacuums from Einhell are real all-rounders, as they proved in our leaf vacuum test. In addition to their function as cordless leaf vacuums, the combi devices also work as cordless leaf blowers and shredders. With an Einhell cordless leaf vacuum you get three devices in one – this not only saves storage space, but also money thanks to the great price-performance ratio!
- Leaf vacuums: Used as a conventional leaf vacuum, you can easily suck up leaves, dirt, lawn cuttings and small branches, and collect them in the collection sack. With the help of the speed electronics you can adjust the suction power and regulate battery consumption and noise level at the same time.
- Leaf blowers: Depending on the model, you can simply switch to the blowing function with a switch, or change from the suction tube to the supplied blowing tube without tools. The blowing function allows you to blow leaves out of hard-to-reach corners and then vacuum them up.
- Shredders: Thanks to the integrated shredder function, the gathered leaves are shredded before they arrive in the collection sack. The cordless leaf vacuum from Einhell achieves a high shredding rate, so the leaves are ultimately shredded to a tenth of their volume. This way you not only save space in the collection sack, but also during disposal.
- Watch out for branches! The shredder integrated in the leaf vacuum can shred smaller branches, but is not suitable for thicker or larger branches, as these could damage the device and the collection sack! So, if you want to shred tree or hedge trimmings and chop branches, you should opt for a garden shredder!
Environmentally friendly, quiet and emission-free thanks to the battery
Cordless leaf blowers are much more environmentally friendly compared to petrol-powered models. The powerful motor works efficiently without producing exhaust fumes that pollute the environment. Unlike petrol, Power X-Change batteries are reusable. If the battery is empty, simply plug it into any PXC charger, charge it and use it again.
Another big advantage of cordless leaf blowers compared to the petrol device is the low weight. You can also operate the different models ergonomically and without effort with the help of the supplied carrying strap and the guide wheels at the end of the suction tube.
Another important point is the volume. While petrol models are among the noisiest devices, the cordless version works many times quieter. This means that you can vacuum leaves without disturbing your neighbours with unnecessary noise.
What to do with the leaves? - Use as humus by composting
Leaves can be composted down to humus. Thanks to the shredding function of the leaf vacuum, the leaves are shredded and then rot faster and easier. If you combine the leaves with the last lawn cuttings, you will get perfect humus for your garden after about two years.
By the way, the time it takes for the leaves to rot differs depending on the species of tree. The leaves of maple, birch, beech, alder, ash, hazelnut, lime, elm and willow rot quite quickly, while the leaves of oak, poplar, sycamore and walnut, for example, take much longer. Oak leaves, for example, take three to five years to decompose into humus.
In general, however, it makes sense to find out beforehand whether the leaves of your tree are suitable for use as humus, as the leaves of the widespread chestnut tree, for example, should not be composted because a certain species of moth hibernates in them and reproduces in the leaves. So not all leaves can be composted, some you should consistently dispose of. Then it helps that when shredded they take up very little space in the bin!
