    Why, for pushing snow, or to get the rocks out of the turf after snow season?

    we use them for snow, spring cleanup, getting dirt and stone out of lawns. fall cleanup. and much more. they are very useful and save a ton of time on things.

    they do awesome in light snow up to about 3" or so.

    I'll reiterate whats already been said:
    They'll work for both. They're not real helpful with heavy wet snow far but a few inches of the average stuff can be moved away from bldgs, stairs, tight spots. I breeze through a 120' drive by walking fast with it angled to one side like a plow. Stones out of grass after the season, or clean up after a construction mess. Rubber paddles are much gentler on the grass than raking and you can move the stones much farther with a power broom with less work. Spread sand over brick patios, clean mulch off lawn after install, dirt after bed prep, stage and pile grass and dirt from big overrun edging jobs, etc.

    Or you can also buy a trimmer head for it and not need another unit for a string trimmer...

    Ok well this makes since, but seems like you could use a blower for most of the things they're used for
