This is a nice, strong blower. I have found that I can mulch leaves more quickly with my weed-eater in a half 50-gallon drum, but this does work OK. I also replaced the zipper with a slightly longer one...just 3" longer opening makes the mulched leaves come out SO much easier. Not sure why no one at the factory has noticed this. All in a all, a good, strong blower.
