Thanks all, some useful opinions here. Don't currently run any battery tools except drills - 10mins running on a charge wouldn't be enough though. The Mitox looks ok at first read but in the detailed pics it looks 'cheaper' by design and has some mixed reviews. Was also looking at the Stihl BG86CE which looked good value at £220 inc vat delivered next day

I have the Husqvarna version of BG85/6 Think its the most powerful blower in its class . The blow out let is directly in line with the handle so tends not to twist in the hand . Its a similar price to the Stihl .

I would recommend one of these.

A..proper micro 4 stroke...little effort to pull over to start...no fuel mixing.

Hand held blowers with a vacuum facility are a waist of time IMHO .  The blower bit is fine , the vac is pants . If you need a vac get a Billie Goat or similar .

🤣🤣 to be honest Stubby i may even end up with a battery one. I’ve kinda decided i cant keep doing for other people all time, family included, i’m busy enough with work and home jobs to start with. May sound a bit selfish, and dont get me wrong i’ll never see anybody go short or struggle if i can help them, but you have to draw a line somewhere. 🤷‍♂️
