    Leaf blowing - buy the biggest backpack blower you can from Stihl/Echo/RedMax and go at it. Any of them will do a decent job moving leaves, though I hear the RedMax is the most powerful.

    Dude, I told you before and I will tell you again....Troybilt SUCKS! It will not last. Unless you are waiting for someone to tell you what you want to hear, I would get something else....nearly anything else!
