Oh, ok. But your blower can move 2 x 4s, 4 x 4s, bricks and some branches depending on size and how they're laying. If there are a lot of sticks/branches down I will often leave them down and blow the leaves and any sticks/brush that move easily and leave the rest and then go back and pick it up. I recommend you have some fun pushing stuff around...it's kinda fun, lol.

I've moved a 20lb chunk of concrete (weighed it) with mine on the rough dirt at my own place. I'm not gonna tell you that you can clear an entire lot off with that type of crap laying around, but you'll be impressed with what you can actually move with it.

If I can get the time tomorrow, I'll see if I can get a short video of it doing that to the chunk I mentioned. We're supposed to have some weather moving through and I have a few others things to get done around here, but I'll do it if I can. It'll move it on pavement pretty readily.

Maybe we could all get together for a cookout and some backpack blower basketball?

So you fire that thing up yet Dave? What do you think? If you haven't fired it up yet you can probably still trade it in for the 580. Your wife won't notice the difference, lol.
