    Just for one season? Would this do better and be faster then a blower?

    Nope. They are for home owners. A nice big powerful back pack blower would be much better.

    I wouldn't use it commercially . If you use it lightly it may last but I think its not worth 200 bucks.

    Guess that Idea is out. I was thinking if the thing only lasted for a few weeks it would still be better then having to blow them around. Was going to put it on the back of the ole lawn tractor with out the deck and ride around the yard.

    yeah....save your money. I bet that thing would fill up fast. I would rather use a blower, tarp and rake.

    I got one at a flea market for $40 years ago, I think I was in 7th or 8th grade at the time. I had one yard that was entirely pine needles and it worked great for picking them up. If you are just doing a couple of yards it wouldn't be too bad. It fills up fast and you still need a place to dump them, I found the driveway to be the best spot. If you have the money I would definetly invest in a powerful backpack blower.
