Nice pic Art!
As much as I love Fall, I hate the leaves falling, they always get all over my car, and in the wiper cowl area, if only there were not so many big trees where I have to park.

I don't have a backpack one, but I have a decent one, a 31cc 2-cycle Gas blower/vac, it gave me some issues starting up a while back, so I need to do some maintenance on it, I've been slacking on fixing it because my landlord pays people to blow the leaves, and get rid of them, he also cleans out the gutters, so I've not really needed to use it.
I use to use it on the leaves where I used to live, to blow the dust out of my PC (held fans in place so bearings did not burn up), and I used it to blow dry my Cub Cadet 50" dual deck lawn tractor whenever I washed it, lol

What he is really saying is, he uses a leaf blower as a cooling fan for all of his computers. And a second one as a supercharger for his Cub Cadet. LOL

LOL
Don't give me any ideas Mike, I bet it would drop temps with the PC though, and the LT would knock the yard out about 5 minutes faster!

Now that I read those reviews I see the blower I have is a POS, others mention the hard to start, and no start at all conditions, they say the carb fouling is a know problem, if that is what is wrong with it may it RIP, I am not paying 65.00 or so to replace it.

i have a rigid shop vac that has the blower attachment. works surprisingly well, if i dont take the focuser part off and stand back some it will blow the mulch out of the garden with the leaves.


supposed to be nice this afternoon might drive the firebird one last time before going to winter mode in the garage so i can get the truck out of the poor weather we normally have coming soon. try to take a pic

Very nice Justin. I can see the red'* & yellows beginning to show.
Interesting.. still mainly green here too. We have not had our first frost yet.
Way warmer than normal. A big train of Pacific rain is headed out way & from Fri onwards, we expect next 7 days to be wet.
It could be Nov before we see frost...not trying to hurry it though been a great summer!
