I love this leaf blower. It is extremely light in weight, and you do not even feel as if you are doing work when cleaning out the yard and gutters. It has a backpack design, so you do not have to carry it in your hands for several minutes on end, but can rather keep it on your back, and only use the blower in one hand to get rid of leaves. It has an extremely powerful blower; you do not have to worry about leaves not being blown away, or low power settings, this machine can pump out high air velocity, even on the lowest setting when in use. It is also perfect for any sized yard. We have a relatively large yard, and it only takes about five minutes to clear out, and collect leaves to be collected when I use this leaf blower to clean up outside. It has a simple on/off toggle, safety feature so it won't blow unless it is on your back, and it is extremely easy to use as well. It is a durable, well built product, and makes yard clean up a cinch. Weight Very light in weight, allows you to do yard work in a fraction of the time.
