My job in the yard is typically clean up after all of the mowing and trimming has been done. I bought this leaf blower to keep my sidewalk and driveway clear and I love it. It is super light so it is perfect for me (or one of my kids) to use. It also has a lot of power, so it gets the job done. Weight This is the main selling point for me. Who wants to lug around a heavy leaf blower in the blazing hot sun? I wanted something that was light weight yet powerful, and this is the perfect leaf blower that has both of those qualities. Performance This little blower gets the job done. I haven't had any issues whatsoever out of the performance. It keeps all the leaves, grass, and debri blown off of my sidewalk and driveway. Ease of Use So easy my 8 year old can use it. Durability Two years and still going strong. I haven't had any mechanical issues out of it yet. It still has the same power as the day I bought it and I use it quite frequently.
