Stimulating the Economy

Fall is just around the corner, and on our property, and on the adjacent ones, there are many trees, and excepting the conifers, many, many leaves. For years we’ve been sweeping them into little piles, then using an oversize plastic dust pan to pick them up and put them into a yard debris bin.

It’s the sweeping part that’s a pain in the neck, so we just bought this baby:


OREGON CORDLESS 40 Volt MAX BL300 Handheld Blower
with 4.0 Ah Battery Pack and C600 Charger

Electric, cordless, powerful, quiet. Now we’ll be able to corral those pesky leaves into manageable piles and get ’em into the leaf bags with ease!

    Fall sure doesn’t feel like it’s around the corner in The Big Easy.

  2. Jeff is so right! Hot, hot, hot!

    I have one of those but found it was faster to rake the leafs. Now I get my older girl to do it, which is easier yet.
