My brother has a pile of leaves every year and he finally did something about you it.
It works awesome, all you need to do is rake the leaves into its general direction and swoomp! Gone!
He has too many obstacles so stationary is safest .

That's cool. Is that an old furnace fan he's using to create suction?

Nope, its a leaf blower with a 8 HP Briggs IC on it. We jus made a tube connection for the blower housing.
