This blower is incredibly handy after weedeating/mowing the yard to take care of errant grass clippings. The motor is strong enough to blow even large leaves and shrub debris after trimming. The mulching attachment is great for mulching leaves in fall and winter. It grinds the leaves fine enough to add to your garden beds or compost pile. Overall a handy, reliable product. Weight Not too heavy and I'm a female. Performance Very easy to use and performs functions well. The motor is strong enough to blow/mulch fairly large pieces of debris with ease. Handling Handles well and gets the job done quickly. Ease of Use Very easy to use. The attachments are easy to put on. The leaf bag can get tangles every now and then, so just be aware when it is getting full while you are mulching. Durability Well made and have not had any issues with it. I've owned this product for 4 years now and never had an issue. Great quality as you would expect from Toro.
