Raking is the pits, at the end of the job, muscles aching, sore back, pissed off, nothing beats blowing that rubbish under the hedge.

It's you then next door (mon voisin) is it?!

Mais non! Not under the hedge dear chap.

🤦‍♀️

Maybe Stihl and others will come up with some high powered, quality-quiet electric blowers soon...

The current battery offering from STIHL is quality you can push some big stuff around and it doesn't make that much noise.

What happened is that when you have just took down a 60ft pop in somebody's back garden thats the size of a ping pong table and its 3 o clock... Is that a Ghostbusters back pack blower gets you home before 12 at night! Much quicker than a rake and your hands!

Just providing much needed mulch for the hedge.

 

If some of it sneaks into next doors garden, well you seem to like raking, fill your boots:)

Ah, gravel - I see your point. Raking or sweeping gravel is a 'mare for sure. Woodchip shaving spindrift or leaves and twigs or whatever on gravel has got to be an exception.

Perhaps I should concede to the "after raking" too? (as the blowing will be for a shorter period than it would have been).

Maybe Stihl and others will come up with some high powered, quality-quiet electric blowers soon...

We bought ten, so they must have ;) k

I was impressed by a tractor mount PTO driven blower, for rapidly clearing hard surfaced woodland pathways, it were the proper bollox, it would actually strip back the encroaching "sod" of grass from the edges, I figgered a disc coulter cutter followed by the PTO blower was the most cost effective edge maintenance regime.

And was studying up incorporating the disc coulter to run as part of/just ahead of the linkage mounted PTO blower set-up.

But it was not to be.
