I got to use it on about 4 clean ups last season, and this season I have already used it on a couple lawns due to the drought we've been in a lot of leaves have dropped. But so far this thing has worked really good. When the leaves are dry, you can run the blower at a slow speed and it still works fine. When the leaves are wet, you run it full speed. I have a piece of tarp inside the cage on the front side and the top, so the dust does not blow toward me. The Leaf Gobbler that I bought from Wright covers me in dust(and pisses me off). At this time, I cant think of anything that I would do different, but if I come up with something as I use it more, I'll post it.
