    they finish cutting a lawn and blow the random grass clippings back on the grass or on to the road?

    first of all, NEVER blow clippings on to the road. it is very unprofessional and gives a bad impression to the neigbors.

    to answer your question, I use a shindaiwa eb501 backpack blower. for smaller jobs you might want to take a look at there hand held blowers.

    Well said about the clippings in the road. I've even seen crews on commercial jobs blowing entire leaf contents into heavy traffic. I dont see how they get away with it. I said i'd never do it but must admit I do have one property on a four lane where I do blow the curb clippings into the road as only a fool would step off the curb into one of those lanes to blow back in. As for the blower, I use Sthil 420's

    I use my Stihl BR 320 Back-pack blower for that type of work.
