You planning on sucking up a small child? More power = more rocks

not really worried about rocks i have a steel headboard. My clean ups are condensed to about 5 days in a 2 week period i move alot of leaves in a very short time frame. bigger motor /bigger intake means faster clean ups= less stress when the flurries are in the sky

the billy goat handles the rocks pretty well. im much more careful now that i have the new impeller on but either way rocks happen. for some reason people think they can have crushed stone driveways in New England

thats almost true. its more of the fact im rushing hard scape and masonry jobs tring to do clean ups/fert/mowing and getting plow bids out at the same time as well as getting married and honeymoon right at the beginning of clean p time. If i can save 20 mintes on a clean up its less stress. I should be doing pretty well this year with a few added goodies this year

What's everyones thoughts on cold patch vs hot pavements for patch work? I've used cold patch in small areas and never really had problems. The area I'm looking to patch will be 4" wide and 15' long. Its on a sloped driveway and I'm wondering if cold patch would hold up (compacted correctly of course) or should I just have hot top brought in and sub out to the a paving company.
