If you have run your business without a backpack so far then don't get one. Yes they are difficult to unlock/unload/relock into the trailers. It is much more convient for the handheld. What I found is the bigger and bigger the blower the more gas we use and we use just about the same amount of time but yes we do a better job. But I doubt
the customer cares.
