Whats the most powerful handheld leaf blower i can buy?

Looking for suggestions from experience on the most powerful handheld leaf blower i can get. I would rather not get a backpack. I dont want to rake, bag, or mulch anymore! Just want to blow everything across road to open pasture. My yard gets completely covered in Maple leaves every year. Its about 3/8 acre.

Been seeing some decant reviews on the Husqvarna 125b, and Echo PB-2520 and PB-2620. Are those decant blowers? Is the newer Echo PB-2620 worth the extra money over the PB-2520 or the Husqvarna?
What other ones have you guys used that are really powerful?

Personally, I would get an Echo PB255LN. I have one, and it is SUPER powerful, and works well. Always starts in less than 3 pulls.

You can't really go wrong with the Echos in my opinion. Either one will be a good unit.

Picked up the Echo PB-255LN last July to replace the good old model that I had for years. If I wanted a stronger blower, I would have to step up to the back-pack models. This new model starts up on the first or second pull and I treat it to ninety-five octane RedMax canned fuel. Very happy with it.
