    has anyone tried this piece of equipment? I'm mostly interested in the picking up function of the blower. Any reviews of it would be helpful. Thanks

    I've got a Stihl SH85 which is similar.

    It picks up some stuff, but I wouldn't use it for any significant clean-up job. There isn't that much sucking power. I guess it works OK, but I use it mainly for a blower.

    These are like the "dust buster", sounds neat but not worth much. I tried a 5HP Troy bilt for sucking up leaves, what a joke big leaves clogged the unit in the first minute.....sent it back.

    Was that the one with the big wheels on it? I was thinking of buying one of those, not sure if it's the one you're talking about.
