please name the pros and cons to both of them and also foresee me what your favorite brand of a leafblower is ex: redmax,homelite,toro,craftsman?
I like the seldom featherlites for quick jobs I do myself(they are light and cheap), but my husband perfers the Stihl backpack, all Gas powered!
The pros are they are much best than sweeping, the better brands like Stihl and Craftsman have more power, but you can make due with any. The cons are tumult and vibration of handhelds, and the backpacks can be a little heavy.

Teen beaten, robbed by group while walking to park in LaGrange
A 16-year-old male was beaten up while walking with a friend to play basketball at Easy Street Park about 5:30 p.m. Monday.
LaGrange Police Sgt. William Nelson said the teens were walking along North Greenwood Street when a group of males they did not know came up behind them. According to Nelson, the group then started beating on the 16 year old, knocking him down and eventually stealing his cell phone.
The teen was left with bruises and scratches, stated Nelson. He was checked out by medics on the scene and released.
Nelson said LaGrange Police Department officers arrested two people in connection with the incident: Davon Osborn, 19, and a juvenile whose identity was not released because of his age.
Osborn was being held this morning at Troup County Jail. Nelson said charges were pending.
Investigators this morning still were looking for additional people involved in the incident.
Nelson said detectives are also investigating it as a potential gang crime.
Anyone with any information was asked to call the LaGrange Police Department Criminal Investigations Division at 706-883-2620, message the department on its Facebook page, “LaGrange Police Department,” or text tips anonymously to 888-777.
Contractor accused of theft by deception
A woman claims a local contractor took her money but has not started any of her home renovations — and the contractor allegedly admitted the claim is true.
The woman filed the report Monday and told officers she wrote the contractor a check for $8,500 on July 3. She said the check cleared her account within a few days, but as of Monday, none of the work had been done.
According to the homeowner, the last time she spoke with the contractor, he told her he no longer had any of the money she had provided to him.
LPD officers also met with the contractor who told them he used the woman’s $8,500 to pay other creditors and does not have the money to start her home renovations or return her deposit, according to the officers’ report.
