    Ive never used one but Ive seen alot of them on trailers around here. Just seems to me my walkbehind with a bagger will do just as well...IMO

    I have one. We mostly deal with oak leaves here, and it wont get the leaves that are in st augustine grass too well, too thick and not powerful enough. But if you blow the leaves onto concrete it is great, or if its a sparce lawn. its also good for commercail properties that have islands that are a pain to blow, like a car dealship. Easier to just suck the clippings up sometimes and just blow the curbing.

    Bought one (used) a few years ago used it a couple of times and promptly put it up for sale. IMO - not suitable for turf applications - why? - Underpowered, slow and plugged frequently when twigs were encountered.
    If you have a lot of time to play around you might find this equipment useful but if you want to 'git-r-done' grab a rake and a tarp and think of all the money you will save.
