    I know ive been asking alot about this but heres another question. For those who have those rubber sweeper things (see photo) like the stihl powersweep, how do you like them. For what purposes do you use it for? This would be a gear box attachment for my trimmer that i might get along with the edger attachment. The one i would get would be the one with out the shaft in the pics, just the sweeper and gear box for my stihl fs 85R. THANKS!!

    SPRING CLEANUP... I see landscapers using them more and more in parking lots etc peoples lawns near roads to get stones etc up from the winter.. they seem to work real good any I have seen in action.

    Ditto what John said and there great when you need to clean up with out creating a dust storm and they work nice to remove 1-2" of snow quickly

    They are very versital for many things. They work great for getting up wet stuck down leaves as well.

    two more questions

    1) would it work for getting mulch out of grass that got stuck there durring a mulch job? That can be a pain sometimes

    2) how long does it last, with the rubber on pavement, and can you just replace the rubber part?

    Thanks
