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.
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.
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.
