Worth the money; delivers as advertised
Everything I read was spot on. Not so great with wet leaves, and not for huge yards. For dry leaves and small yards, this machine does a fine job. Especially if you have an issue with hauling away bags of leaves; this chops them up so the volume you have to haul is significantly less (the major reason I purchased). I do wish the bag was a little larger, but they do make the attachment for a trash barrel that would solve that.

yard that hadn't been raked out in a couple years. A total of about 10 hours, and it only jammed (sticks) 3 times; easy enough to clear them out.
Used the blower just once, to clear the driveway, and it seemed to work well.
All-in-all, a very nice machine; worth the money. Don't have many hours on it to comment on longevity (time will tell).
