    It's a good deal on a tool you won't use much. I had a 9 hp version of a lawn vac and after struggling with it for 2 years I finally ended up giving it away. They're fine for a homeowner that has time to kill but they take too long to drag back and forth across yards.

    I agree with Mr. Martin. They are terrible in grass and didn't like sticks at all. The only place we ended up using ours is on paved commercial lots near curbs. We no longer have ours either.

    I have one of these units. It just sits and hardly ever moves. It clogs to easily with the smallest of twigs and to empty the bag is a huge waste of time. JMO

    Wise words. I've bought two over the years thinking how good they'd be. Wasted my money, invest in another blower.:)
    Good luck Phil
