    Today I bought a new Landa hot water pressure washer. It has an 11HP Honda. The guy who sold it to me demonstrated how he uses his to blow his yard clean.

    WOW no joke leaves move WAY faster than using a Stihl BR400 backpack blower.

    And the grass gets watered!

    Good idea, but, dont try to vacuum them up, obviously they are soaking wet & are impossible to suck up. I had a guy hire me to just remove his leaves from the street after he "blew them". instead, he power washed them. Big mistake. It took about 2 hours for a 15 minute job.
