Let's just say that I've become a little bit obsessive about our small patches of lawn lately. I've always dreamed of having a beautiful lawn and am excited with how that's progressing. This blower is a perfect addition to the arsenal! I love the fact that it's electric (less noise), battery powered (no gas/oil to add), and cordless (nothing to get tangled in). It's perfect for our small patches of grass -- it has plenty of power to wisp away the clippings and the battery lasts (all of our patches add up to about 5000 sq ft). Here's to future patch perfection!
