Around Grand Rapids Dj's seems to have the most of them.
Tru-Cuts in Spring Lake have the original Blue colored one and also one or two of the red ones. I was talking to one of the owners a couple year ago and he said his guys won't do a clean-up without one now that they've used them.

They do seem like they would save a ton of time and effort but I think on a small yard or one with a bunch of bark/plant beds it would do more damage then good. I bet they would be great for companies that do parking lot striping and seal coating too.

Well I've got a hurricane blo-vac demo coming up over a weekend in november. I'll be doing all residential properites with it, so I will definately find out how well it works on residential properties.
