Here's what I do. Single story ONLY. 8' step ladder, I clean them out by hand and as I move the ladder I drag behind it a 8'x8' trap, throwing the leaves on it as I work. I dont have to clean the gutter up or the lawn or anything else. I prefer not using the blower.
All equipment is wore out.
<- Never mind. All equipment has been repainted and with new decals. It's like I have new mower's again!
