Leaf blower/vac

Hi All

You know those leaf blowers, I see there is a vac on them. Do they suck up leaves and grass clipping that fall on the gravel, without sucking up the stones?

    they do, though if you got a really powerful one who knows. Ours is too heavy for me but OH sucks up the leaves from the gravel in the GH when I let all the leaves blow in there like they're doing right now.

  • thanks again nutcutlet, at least I know what to look for

    My Stihl picks up leaves from gravel but it's quite powerful so I don't use it on 'tiny' gravel as it would suck that up as well.

    Can anyone recommend a leaf blower that is really, really lightweight?  I have a vacuum leaf gatherer but it is unsuitable for certain areas.
