Blows like a whirlwind, and clears leaves beautifully, but the sucking is not so good.
1. The bayonet fitting for the bag was initially very tight. A bit of grease has helped, but it is still quite a struggle.
2. The exit from the fan to the bag has a set of (presumably) strengthening vanes across it. These clog very easily, particularly if the leaves are at all damp, or too many are picked up at once. Clearing requires removing the bag and poking about with a hooked piece of wire. Fingers work OK but not recommended if picking up holly!
3. The bag is of poor quality. It is already fraying badly inside the neck, and has developed a hole after only three afternoons work.
