    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.:laugh:

    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.

    Do you not own a lawn mower either?

    Lol Darryl, I have the Toro Super Recycler 4. I do need to sharpen the blade though.

    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!
