    I got one of those, I think it works better as a vacuum...fuck raking the leaves.

    How exactly does a leaf blower save a life though?

    You don't really apreciate the leaf blower until you actually have to use one. And if and when you use one - please be repsectful to your neighbors and use it at a appropiate time. Don't be "that guy".

    My sucks, as well as blows.

    I remember when my old roommate got one. Everyone wanted to use it...after 30 minutes or so it just went back to the same old bagging leaves BS. I still have much appreciation for them though. I'm going for the backpack model next year.

    I hate you for living in a place where you don't need to rake leaves until January.

    snowed in walkways...could be handy for my area right now.

    technically speaking you never really HAVE to rake leaves.

    ^^That's what I was thinking.... my whole thing is like, fuck raking leaves.... they're gonna blow back in the yard anyway, and the trees are gonna drop more next year anyway. Solution: chop down trees.

    Oh, and can you believe that it didn't really even get cold here until last week or so.... we saw our first freeze. Christmas day was short sleeve wheather, no joke.

    True.

    I grew up in a small redneck town in Indiana so we just kind of got them into spaced out piles and lit them on fire.
