Heavy duty leaf blower in action

Just in time to pretty up the exterior of your home during leaf season, Hometown Hardware delivers a lightweight, battery-operated leaf blower by Echo that’s ideal for picking up after Mother Nature.

The Echo blower is fast-becoming a favorite of homeowners seeking a lighter, handheld alternative to many of the backpack models.

The 550 CFM retails for $229.99 and uses a 58-volt battery to deliver a good bit of power.

The Echo model is just one of many leaf blowers in stock and ready for purchase at Hometown Hardware, which has stores in Waynesville, 219 Waynesville Plaza, 828-456-8344; and Canton, 127 Plaza Loop, 828-235-2120.

If customers are looking to do more than gather up the season’s leaves, they can get some much-needed assistance removing branches, logs or an entire tree with the CS35-10 chainsaw.

The chainsaw retails for $259.99 and is in stock at the Canton store.

So far, Canton Store Manager Slade said he’s sold 10 models and customer feedback has been great for the lightweight saw that’s 2.7 pounds lighter than its closest competition.

“Leaf blowers and chainsaws are pretty much what people are buying right now,” Slade said. “They will be a popular seller through December.”

And either or both would make the perfect Christmas gift for dad.

In all, Hometown Hardware stocks two different models of gas-powered, hand-held leaf blowers and three backpack models. As for chainsaws, the store has 11 varieties of Echo models to choose from.

While Hometown Hardware is proud to service homeowners, it also works closely with several large commercial accounts. In addition, the Canton location offers a well-equipped service department that delivers repairs on every item sold in the stores.

“We don’t send things out like the big box stores do. We fix them in the back and that gives customers peace of mind,” Slade said.

All repair work comes with a satisfaction guarantee.

Season after season, Hometown Hardware delivers on the promise brothers Dave and Mike Singleton pledged to their customers when they opened their first store in 2012.

The two saw a local need for an old-fashioned hardware store that offered expert service, knowledgeable support and a wide selection of top-quality products.

Eight years later, that’s exactly what the Singletons continue to do.

If you’re in the neighborhood, stop by and say hello. Better yet, if you have a question on a hardware-related product or project, stop in and ask one of the many helpful associates, who will be glad to help.
