Reduce noise from blowers and mowers

While labour-saving devices do make noise, as even horses do, I point to Honda’s introduction of an amazingly quiet generator decades ago.

And I question why blowers are used to collect leaves – Husqvarna make a portable vacuum for leaves.

People should be challenged reduce noise to a reasonable level.
