So a good proportion of the people here are beer bobs and not interested in productivity. Interesting.
I wouldnt say that, there are only a few poeple posting on the forums wich isnt even enough to represent a small proportion of the 2000 Members.
I do know from experieince about using both types and the gains in productivity.
a ran top handheld for 12 months and looking for increase productivity and checking forums for advise and tips, i purchaced a Husqvarna 570BTS.
The Husqvarna 570BTS saved me.
1+ hour a day,
does a better job gets stubourn leaves. blows mulch, large bark pieces and rocks back into garden beds with ease
A extra 1 hour a day saved is 2 lawns a extra that can be done, extra $80 sales that can be done for the same wages
5 days can be $400 sales a week for the same wages.
I have a friend that does schools he uses the stihl vac attachment all the time and loves it, says it saves him heaps of time, he blows all leaves into corners and then sucks up the piles. no raking or bending over
