Good for the price but flawed compared to more upmarket models.

For the price this is a good unit and if you only have a small area to clear it works well, especially in blower mode. it does have two major issues in vacuum mode: (1) The nozzle is quite narrow and larger leaves(sycamore/horse chestnut) jam and need a helping hand to go up the tube and (2) the right-angle vent where the bag attaches gets blocked with debris quite easily, especially if the leaves are damp. To clear it you need to remove the bag and poke around inside(switch off the power first!!). It is not as powerful as my (25 year) old B&Q model which still works but whose bag burst, so I bought this and the difference is plain. But it just about does the job and is half the price of the latest B&Q model.
