    I am looking into buying a power broom for a few different jobs I need to do.

    1. Pushing gravel from the plow back to the driveway from the lawn

    2. Dethatching small lawns

    3. "Raking" leaves from the previous year

    Would a power broom work well for these things?

    If so, which one should I look into, I have all Stihl brand right now and have had good luck/good dealer, but I am open to others.

    What would I be looking at for prices? Im going to go to the dealer tomorrow and hope to not be floored by the price

    i like the shindiawa broom. you can use it for all the things you mentioned and when you get tired of pushing you can flip it over and pull. You get kinda dirty pulling but it is a break from pushing.

    how big is the stihl power broom and how much did it cost? I have a brochure for a 48" self propelled for almost 4 grand way to much for me, i'd like one for sidewalks in the winter
