Last week I wrote an article about tools to keep your yard from becoming a leafy mess because I don’t like fall leaves to linger and turn to mush on my lawn. So today I was ecstatic to see a deal on a leaf blower as one of Amazon’s Deal of the Day. This gas-powered Hitachi leaf blower is on sale for 41 percent off—now just $89.

The handheld blower weighs only 8.6 pounds, is 17.3-inches long, and can blow speeds up to 170 mph with the included taper nozzle. The tool uses a 1.13-horsepower, low-emission engine. You’ll produce fewer fumes without losing much engine power. The blower has a larger, finger-controlled throttle that makes it easier to use with one hand. It comes with a seven-year warranty so you can be sure you can stick it to those pesky leaves for a couple seasons. $89.
