Leaf blower/vacuum suggestions please

Can anyone recommend a good quality old style corded leaf blower/vacuum.

I bought a modern 2 tube "easy to swap between functions" one but cannot agree with this claim.  It is also very heavy with no supporting wheels - not suitable for an 87 year old.

    I would like to know too.

    I had a Black and Decker that I liked very much but after some years it wore out. I can't find it for sale anymore. For my garden in France. May be it's still available in the UK.

    I bought a Ryobi but it's too heavy. I bought a cheap one which works well on light, dry, freshly fallen leaves but not powerful enough for anything else.
    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.
