    Hello Alan

    As an ex machinery dealer I recomend either Stihl or Husqvarna

    I sold lots of these and had very little problrm. If you go to your local dealer they will set it up and demonsrate it to you

    Hi Alan, I have a Stihl vac/blower, reliable as anything.  Would definitely recommend.

  • Stihl again, can't fault mine, 10 years old and starts every time.

    None of them like sucking wet leaves though, if you do buy a Stihl I recommend buying a couple of spare fans, they do wear down and then give less power, and buy a torx tool so you can clean the the fan chamber out.

    Also useful for sucking up the grass after clipping the lawn edges.

  • stihl it is then ta.!

    Personally don't use mine to suck leaves up, just blow them Into a pile and then pick them up.
