    Default Leave it or love it!

    My old (well, 3 years old) Stihl leaf blower wasn't hacking it anymore (Model somthin' somthin' 85) The new place has a BUNCH of trees. Hence, a BUNCH of leaves. I cleaned 'em up saturday afternoon, and by this morning, the back yard was a foot deep in new leaves. The little hand-held blower wasn't big enough anymore. (I blow all the leaves out in the open, then grind 'em up with the mower)

    Time for a new toy!

    Stihl BR340 back-pack blower to the rescue!

    $299 and tax. That baby will move some leaves. Nothin' like having the right tool for the job!

    Why stop at the leaves, Why not blow out the whole tree with this [img]/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    I still use my old homelite 170mph hand held unit...

    I'm afraid that would blow away the dawg, my lawn furniture, and maybe even knock down the barn!

    Saw something similar to that attached to the back of an older Ford tractor clearing leaves from a golf course just the other day. Needless to say the operator was wearing ear protection and it's a good thing because I heard the blower way before I actually saw it.

    Nasty,
    Here's a variation of that blower. It's like the one they use for the race tracks.

    They are supposed to be the cat's meow in blowers.
