    This is my full crew i own the billy and redmax and my buddy brought the 8510 to help out. as you can see we used the billy as an aid to get this slop mess away from the fence. The only reason i wasnt working was because of a fractured elbow.... so i filmed :laugh:

    Would have been twice as fast if one guy was on the other side of the fence blowing it out and off the fence. The guy on other side blows it out while the guy with backpack and push blower moves it down the fence.

    good observation but we tried that from jump street. the leaves were in a drainage ditch and soaked so i instructed my guys to use the billy goat as an aid and use the backpacks to move the piles into the woods. Thanks for the comment!:)

    getting on top of them with the backpacks would help loosen them a bit, making it easier for you guys to utilize the CFM of the push blower.

    Good job on moving the leaves. It's amazing what 2 BP blowers and a push blower can move! We sometimes use our 2 stihl blowers, along with our little wonder blower.

    ... yes leaf blowers are an efficient way to move leaves.

    Yeah even if we only have one bp it still can do the job. My billy goat is just used as a aid most times. We will corral all the leaves at the fence gate stick the billy goat full throttle shooting out the fence and just use bps to get all the leaves out the gate

    Yeah thats usually common procedure but lately we been getting these houses that are rentals or careless home owners that have a foot and half of soaked leaves and we have to double the cfm with the pb and bp to push the leaves out

    I think rakes would have been much faster!
