Hello Alan

As an ex machinery dealer I recomend either Stihl or Husqvarna

I sold lots of these and had very little problrm. If you go to your local dealer they will set it up and demonsrate it to you

Hi Alan, I have a Stihl vac/blower, reliable as anything.  Would definitely recommend.

Stihl again, can't fault mine, 10 years old and starts every time.

None of them like sucking wet leaves though, if you do buy a Stihl I recommend buying a couple of spare fans, they do wear down and then give less power, and buy a torx tool so you can clean the the fan chamber out.

Also useful for sucking up the grass after clipping the lawn edges.

Personally don't use mine to suck leaves up, just blow them Into a pile and then pick them up.
