Default Lawn vac for leaf collection

Thinking about getting a Little Wonder lawn vac to fight the battle in the fall against leaves.

Anyone have any experience with something like this?

What's the benefit if one of those vs blowing them next to your truck and then using a truck mounted leaf vac to suck them up?

For me, the benefit would be the ability to vac up the leaves as opposed to blowing all the leaves to my truck which doesn't have a truck mounted vac.

Since we can't afford one this year. I am hoping on renting one from somewhere. If not, looks like we'll be old schooling it with rakes, and some good old elbow grease oh and of course bags.
