Toro leaf blower, $34.97 with free shipping

My husband is in the middle of a pretty intense work assignment this month, so rather than hire someone to do the light yardwork, I wanted to see if I could get some of it done myself.  We've got three trees on our property and right now, and both the front and back lawn are blanketed in leaves.

Problem is, I'm a wimp.  I went to Home Depot to shop for a leaf blower and they were all too heavy for me.  They are fine to hold initially, but after about ten minutes of aiming the wand around, my arm starts to ache.

I went online and struck gold.  Check out this highly-rated Toro 51585 Power Sweep 7 amp 2-Speed Electric Blower for just $34.97 with free shipping.  One of the reviews even mentioned that it's lightweight enough for women with less upper-body strength to use, but powerful enough to do the job well.  I was a little surprised at how inexpensive it was, but with 4-1/2 out of 5 starts over a whopping 237 reviews, I'm convinced to give it a try.  And $35 is about a third of what our grass guy wants to charge us for raking up all the leaves.

One of the reviewers said they even used this blower clean their gutters.  <Gulp.>  I might just leave that job to the experts.
