I have one of the White and Orange make as well, wet leaves are not good and soon clog the fan, and it gets worse as the fan gets worn away.

Altough I have found that smaller leaves,silver birch for example, are not too bad even when wet, and don't try to be too greedy when sucking, if you get a large amount of stuff at one go this is when blocking occurs because you are getting less air in to the machine, which is needed to blow through to the collecting bag.

First and second early spuds around the circle.


 Hello again David, due to family health reasons I don't spend a lot of time browsing the site anymore.

It's lovely to see other peoples pictures, there are some wonderful photos on view.

If it's really cheap, you can buy it and work in to the ground, it might still be a bargain.

I would not consider buying something that is not readily available in the UK,if you ever needed a spare part it's nothing but headache.

Two ways of doing it.


I've always done it the first way although the second looks a little easier.

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.

How to clear field

One problem you may encounter is wireworm in spuds, common when planted after grass.  It may benefit being turned over so the birds can clear them away.
