Sthil has come out with a sweeping gizmo like what Shindaiwa makes. They have those rubber fins and look like a broom on a trimmer. Shindaiwa has one with rubber fins and with bristles. I was wondering how well they would work on sidewalks for just brushing grass off like a blower. They look like they would work for leaves. If they work well, I'll probably order one, that is if they are less than a blower.
