If, like us, you're singing California Dreaming because all the leaves are brown and the sky is gray, this Amazon leaf blower deal is just the thing for dealing with the build-up in your backyard.

This deal is on the Milwaukee M18 FUEL 120 MPH 450 CFM 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Handheld Blower. The best leaf blowers are brilliant tools for this time of year, and this particular model is powerful, lightweight, and, at the time of writing, an impressive 21% off. That means it's bucking the post-Prime Day trend, where all kinds of products have increased in price since the deals days ended. This blower's price has gone down dramatically instead.

The thing about waiting for the best Black Friday deals is that sometimes you need things now – particularly for outdoor gadgets such as leaf blowers. So consider this bargain, and get some control back in your yard this fall.

This powerful 120mph leaf blower has a powerful airflow of 450 cubic feet per minute, making light work of leaves and other debris. You'll need to supply your own 18V battery – like other big power tool brands, Milwaukee designs its products to share batteries to keep your overall costs down and reduce your environmental footprint, too – and you can expect about 20 minutes of unbroken blasting from a single charge.

Milwaukee M18 FUEL leaf blower: key features

The M18 FUEL range is designed and built for professionals, featuring Milwaukee's own brushless POWERSTATE motor for maximum power and longevity. The batteries are interchangeable between products to save you time, storage space, and money – and that's not just outdoor tools but impact wrenches, percussion drills, circular saws, and more. According to Milwaukee, these are the most powerful 18V cordless tools in their class.

In addition to the POWERSTATE battery, this blower has Milwaukee's REDLINK PLUS™ intelligence system. That protects your blower from overloading and maximizes power from its motor. Factor in a comfortable, ergonomic, and efficient design that shifts dirt and debris from even the tightest places, a variable trigger and speed lock for full power control, and that impressive airflow – up to 12.74 m³/min of air volume at 193 km/h – this is a serious blower for serious jobs.

Leaf blower deals

If you're interested in alternatives, Amazon is currently running a limited-time deal on the VacLife 20V blower, down from $199.99 to $89.99.  And if you just need a cheap and cheerful model, this cordless blower is down $10 to just $49.99, again for a limited time. 

For big-name brands, however, there aren't many deals around now that Prime Day is done - for the likes of DeWalt, BLACK+DECKER, and others, it looks like you'll need to hang on till Black Friday to see much in the way of discounts for those.
