If you're determined to get the best leaf blower deals, says Lowe's spokeswoman Colleen Maiura, shop at the end of the fall season. And when might that be? "Typically, the majority of leaf blowers are purchased either the last week in October or the first week in November," she explains. "It's all dependent on when the leaves fall, and oftentimes that's a moving target."
