Product Identification - leaf blower/vacuum


I would like to purchase a gas powered leaf blower/vacuum. I've been researching and have not yet found what I want. What do I want? Well, I thought that I had seen it offered on some late night infomercial. Can I recall it? No. That's where you come in. The blower/vacuum I recollect seeing on TV allows users to seemlessly move from blower to vacuum and by switch of a button, rather than having to maneuver the device on its side and connect new tubing.

I've been looking for this kind of product at all the big box stores and I've been unsuccessful. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Personally I would not buy it, but here it is:

I have a Stihl blower vac myself.

When working outdoors, I favor gas powered tools. There are no gas tools that I know of that have this easy reposition capability.
