200 – 350 CFMs: It has a slightly stronger blow. For small yards or sidewalks, this could be a desirable option.
350 – 450 CFMs: For medium-sized yards, a leaf blower with 350-450 CFMs is a suitable choice.
450 CFMs above: Blowers at this level provides a very powerful and fast blow. It can clean large areas.
