How many of you actually do Spring clean-ups when its windy 10-20mph? I can work with the wind if its around 10 mph and one directional but 15+ with 30 mph gusts not happening. Any of you have certain techniques you use when its really windy?

Works good when the wind blows leaves into neighbors yards. Then they call for a clean up.:laugh:

That's why I only use backpack blowers. So much more flexible than a push model. You can fight the wind with a backpack. With a push blower you just have to take it until the wind stops and then back up and redo the last 20'. As far as working in the wind, A day without work is a day without income.

Rakes, backpacks on half throttles and the Lazer to suck them up. When its really windy I just give up.
