Can Someone Reccomend a Good Blower/Vac?


I mainly want to use it as a vac. I need something that has a bag that is easily carried on a strap, and something that can easily transfer the contents from the bag to a garbage can.
I don't mind if its electric....I'll already have my electric cord from my electric edger.

thanks

Can Someone Reccomend a Good Blower/Vac?


I bought a Toro Blower Vac from HD that had a metal grinder and bag attachment but the bag was small and the grinder didnt do so well with acorns. The blower is great - alot of power for 70 dollars and it is top rated by consumer reports. Transferring to the refuse container is not a smooth process but Im not sure it is with any of these devices.

Stihl received top reviews from Consumer Reports for a cord free device.
