If you have a small yard or property, this is the product for you! It is light weight making it extremely portable and easy to carry and use. It does a great job at clearing the leaves and other fallen yard waste. I won't go so far as to say it makes yard work fun, but it comes awfully close. Weight This unit is extremely light weight. The light weight makes it easy to carry for any job and so light almost anyone can manage it. It makes doing this task much easier. Performance Overall, this performs pretty well. It does its job to get rid of smaller amount of leaves and debris. However, because of its small weight and size, it is limited in power and is really best for smaller jobs. For what it is, though, it performs very well. Handling This is easy to handle. It doesn't have any pull back or odd sensations and you can target the areas you need extremely easily. Ease of Use This unit is extremely easy to get started up and then to operate. Durability This unit holds up very well. It comes on and off our shelves in the storage area without showing any wear and tear. It also holds up well to the occasional drop.
