View Full Version : gas powered leaf blower

The barn where I board has recently bought a gas powered leaf blower for the aisle. They have started to store the blower in the heated tackroom and there is a distinct smell of gas in there now.

Is this dangerous (I think so) and how can I persuade the BM to remove it?

I don't think its dangerous, but I agree that gas stinks something nasty. Plus, it is probably a gas oil blend, which smells worse.

Just ask nicely! Explain that the smell makes you gag and is there another place that it could go, a storage closet, feed room etc etc.

I don't think it's dangerous, but it is noxious gas shouldn't be stored in an enclosed area around people.

Not sure I would want to use one in a barn because of the dust factor, but ours blows leaves to Kingdom Come. Mulch too, hehe!
