A wheel blower work great for pitching leaves through a gate....leave it stationary and feed it with the backpack.

If his wife wasn't happy with him buying this blower, I doubt she'd be too happy with him buying a wheeled blower.

Got the second pile blown today after work. Damn I love this thing. This was blowing it through 8-10" tall "grass". Thing is amazing. Too dark to get a good picture, but, that's a lot of leaves. It won't get to this point next year.

If you dump the Toro, I highly recommend the Honda HRx line. The HRX217HYA to be exact. I have the older version (HRX217HXA) and its a bad mofo.

But to stay on topic... Great job blowing those leaves buddy!

Nah! I just got the Toro a couple years ago!

Your guys' recommendation...it should/better last!

See a common theme...Want a $200-$300 mower, I end up with a $530 mower.

That mower is junk...you need one of these babies...lasers to cut the grass. I'll have a chat with the wife on your behalf if you'd like.
