Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book


There had been talk in the past on here about this attachment but from what I remember, the discussion came down to it being easier and faster to use a ladder, manually remove the leaves with your hand and put them into a bucket.

Anyone else have any thoughts?

After watching this video, I could see this kind of leaf vac system being a real pain and not getting everything.

I bought them however they only fit the hand held units and we only have back packs, my concern with these is knowing if you got everything, pine needles that have been soaking in water can take extra effort. We simply use a harness and walk the roof.

I have one for my Echo backpack and let me tell you everything it blows out of the gutter goes directly onto your face.

It's better than climbing but you can't reach everything.

Why is it not vacuuming?

I have one and really like it, after I put better hose clamps on it it worked perfectly for single story houses. And it is cheap.
