I am advertising leaf cleanup, and I was wondering if any one ever used one of the walk behind leaf blowers. They have one for rent at home depot for like 45 dollars for 24 hours. What is your take on these compare to a regular handheld or backpack?

The biggest backpacks are just under 5hp so if you get a 11hp push blower your looking at twice the cfm.

Nice, before, it used to take me about 10-12 hours to do a leaf cleanup, and thats by myself normally, which sucked. But that might cut it down to about 8 maybe. So I can work more efficient.

It depends on job type too.

If its a blow it in the woods clean up. Then its great. The way I do is I push the blower and use the backpack at the same time.

In a situation where you have to blow in to a pile to collect its useless.

I was thinking about mounting my hand held blower to my walk behind mower with both the blower and side discharge should move some air

That is awesome....even if you could hook that up to a walk behind it would still be awesome.
