One of the best purchases I've ever made.

I bought a used B&D Leaf Hog last year. It really works well and would have been worth the full retail price. For being electric, it shocks me how much I like it.

@TulsaFan ... I'm sure I'll find many uses for this during Spring clean-up. Hand picking leaves out of the shrubs has always been a task I've hated.

I have a toro and it Works well if you don’t have mulch around your beds. Sucking up Leaves in and around mulch beds isn’t exactly a pleasurable experience.

@Scagfreedom48z+ I hear ya. No one has come up with a good solution there. The best we can do is to use a blower to get leafs into the yard when they're dry and then vac them up. We did get some light snow, and I do have a large bark-mulched area that is covered with leaves currently, so since it will be 40F this weekend I might see how this thing does on that area.
