I bought a Shindaiwa EB3410 blower right before the leafs start shetting, I put it to good use. Now I discover I can use it for drying my car and windows after washing so I don't have to hand wipe or let it dry and leave water stain. I also use it to blow my garage floor also. The garage get very dusty all the time. Open the garage door, close the door to the house, wear a mask and start blowing from the back and move forward out the driveway. It work very well, Garage is full of stuff, moving all the stuff aside and sweep take a lot of time, I just blow all the dust out to the drive way in less than 5 minutes. Now this become a year round equipment instead of seasonal. For people out there like me, treating these stuff more like toys than tools, sure give you a good reason to tell your wife you need a very good one!!!! Instead of a cheapy Craftsman, I got myself a Shindaiwa. Only regret is I did not get a stronger back pack instead.
