Having had several of these machines over the years (some haven't lasted three weeks), this is the first that just sucks things up and you don't have to stop to clear the motor. It's light and powerful.

So what stops it from getting five stars?

It's the same problem with all these machines. The bag is attached in three places. There is a plastic fitment that clips over the exhaust and then two straps (either end of the bag)with buckles that clip onto the machine.

In the case of the Handy, the buckles are a tight fit and have to be flattened and pushed into place. Unclipping the plastic fitting (that attaches to the leaf exhaust) can also be a bit hit and miss. It clips on okay with a bit of a push but getting it off is not always easy. I would make designers of these machines spend an hour working on a cold winter's afternoon. You can't fit any of the buckles on any of the machines with gloves and unclipping the plastic fitting can be a a struggle. Your fingertips are icy cold and the plastic is wet and slippery with leaf 'mould'. The buckle broke on my Handy so that made one fitting easier.

So the Handy is no different. I found the trick was to keep filling the bag until it dropped off the exhaust through sheer weight! If you're looking for an electric leaver blower/sucker, this will fit the bill. Just avoid really cold days!

The Handy is the best of the bunch. It certainly reduces the leaves to a 'leaf ash' and the lack of jammimg is a big plus.

This is a very effective leaf blower/vacuum. The motor is powerful and it sucks up wet and dry leaves from the patio and lawn easily. No problem from gravel areas either. The bag is a bout the right size - any bigger and it would get too heavy, and it is easy to empty and reattach. It has a nose wheel which helps with the weight, although i find i don't use it often as a side to side motion works best for me.

It is easy to put together and I was using it within 5 minutes of opening the box.

This does everything you need it to easily and quickly enough. Very good value.

Delivery very quick - next day. Reasonably light, good solid build quality. Impellers plastic, so not vulnerable to the damage reported on aluminium fans. Bag strong. Have not yet tried it on wet leaves, but works well on standard leaf fall. Variable speed 3Kw motor useful when blowing over pebbles. Sucks well, tho' long, strong leaf stalks (as with virginia creeper) resist mulching and tend to clog path to bag, which has a right-angle bend. Easy to clear any blockages, however. I rate this as a good-value blower/vacuum

This does the job as described. It's a little loud and perhaps ear defenders -for those using it a lot- or ear plugs might be in order. I have given it 4 stars because already one of the plastic clips that holds the 'leaf' bag onto the device has broken -they are a bit awkward considering they have to be 'used' to take the bag off it for emptying the leaves.
Also, there is a little piece missing from ours after only its second use. The strap that goes over the shoulder to take some of the weight off your arms has a triangular piece of open metal, much like a musical triangle but tiny and thin, crossed with a carabineer twisty piece of metal to hold it onto the device, the pivot if you will. This came off and got lost in the grass before I noticed it had unscrewed itself (the vibrations are fierce).
The delivery of it was great, well within the time stated by the supplier, and was well packaged. The price, I guess, is reasonable for what it does but, when they say use it until you feel the leaves weighing you down then empty it, that is the best policy. More trips to the bin mean less aches, trust me.
Storage of it can be an issue too, as it is quite tall when it's built up, although if you have room in your garden storage, be it a shed or box, then it can easily be hung up inside it but I'd watch out for damp or when its freezing as being an electrical item, it will be sensitive to moisture on the electrics. Of course, most people know this, but not everyone does. Next time you plug it in will it bugger it up? Careful now.

I found it easy to assemble and lighter than many similar blower/vacs I have hadin the paast but very effective in both modes. This represents great value for money.

I have owned several leafblowers before, from well-known names and expensive, but they had many problems, culminating in terminal write-offs, in particular with my last one where the safety cut-out was faulty even after repair by the manufacturer. I had not heard of Handy products before and approached the purchase with caution as it was both unknown to me and ridiculously low-priced in comparison to my last, unlamented purchase. Having read the reviews I decided to go for it. It was quickly delivered, easy to assemble and light to use. It works well on dry leaves and wet, on hard surface and on soil/gravel. In very wet conditions it has clogged once through build-up of mulched leaf at the shredder wheel, but is very easily cleaned and very accessible to clean. I have to say that I'm very pleased with its mulching capability and its ease of operation. It is unfussy and works entirely to my satisfaction. The 10 metre cable is a good length for practical use, and supplemented with an extension has done the job it promised. It seems robust and reliable, and if, in the fulness of time I need to replace it, I shall certainly look on this manufacturer's products with a kindly eye. Thank you very much for a machine that does what it says it does!
