Value So Good Its Hilarious
3 September 2018
I paid about 35 quid for this. The price I'd pay for a meal with my missus at a value for money restaurant. Staggering when you think about it. Because, despite the bargain bin price it works surprisingly well.
When I got this the box it came in looked about the size of a shoe box and I wondered if I'd ordered the wrong item to be honest. When I opened it up there's no doubt I was looking at a marvel of packaging the likes I'd hardly seen before. And whilst one of course understands that this is because the manufacturer - which despite the name is probably something like 'The Lucky Garden Company of Kowloon,' is being parsimonious with the disposable materials, in fact the by-product of this approach is minimal waste.
I like that to be honest.
So, once assembled we have what is a standard(ish) sized leave vac/blower that due to its low rent price is very lightweight and easy to use. F1 car designers spend millions making a part a few grams lighter. Can I suggest that instead they have the same budget of this company and they will really see some cuts.
So being cheap, its light to use and ideal for those who don't have arms like a gorilla. Win, win.
In use the thing that astonished me is that it actually works and works well. Really. The only problem is that the nozzle is clearly designed to make the best of the small motor and is thus quite small so that if you bury this in a pile of leaves it will block up. Once you get the hang of not doing that it works fine.
Best bit is the blower function. That very same narrow idea is transferred to the underslung blower section and that means quite a powerful jet of air that's more than able to shift most of the leaves easily.
And this comes with a decent length of power cord.
Honestly, even if you bought one of these a year you would still be quids in. And given that despite the cheapo cost, actually its not badly made means you'll probably get a few years out of this.
