I just got this new cordless electric leaf blower last week. It is so easy to use. I had been using a corded electric blower - however I rarely used it because getting the extension cords out and then coiled back up was just too much trouble. We have lots and lots of maple leaves. This new blower works wonders. It has more than enough power to blow large piles of leaves as well as piles of wet leaves. It is so much easier to direct my leaves where I want them to go. I can now go out daily and blow off the walkways in a matter of a few minutes. Longer to put them all into a pile for bagging.
