Hi, my name is Matthew Christian from Tampa, Florida and on behalf of Expert Village, today I would like to talk to you about the proper and use of a leaf blower. When using any power tool, it is always very important to keep safety in mind. Protect yourself with a pair of OSHA approved safety glasses, a set of ear plugs, some common household gardening gloves and when using a leaf blower which is going to be kicking up quite a bit of dust, I recommend using a particle mask or dust mask. This will help protect you while using the equipment. It will protect your eyes, your hearing and you won't be breathing in any dust.
