What ones bring out the Rambo in you? What type do you own? Which ones can't you live without? Where did you buy them and why? Which ones should go out in your next Garage Sale?

I read somewhere where Teri said that she had a pair of electric shears that she dead heads with. I've never seen any such thing. Does anyone have them or a photo?

This is on our 'dream' list for this fall. Cleaning up the leaves is becoming a big chore for us and harder each year. I want it because even if my DH couldn't do it anymore, I still could use it.

That's pretty awesome Pam. Does it mulch them? You'd have to be careful not to use it in Mulched areas or it would pick up the mulch.

Yes it does mulch. I don't put mulch in the flower beds though. It's a haven for voles.

I thought so too, but found that having them unmulched didn't make a difference, but at least with the mulch, there were fewer weeds and the roots stay cooler.

Pam, I'm afraid that I need a lot more plants and a lot fewer maples and Critters!!

lol - it's not hard to get there. Maples are suppose to suck up more water than oaks, no? I have mostly oaks and pines. A few maples.

Maples are horribly thirsty plants and like Black Walnut & Ailanthus, which I also have, allelopathic. You could not have any idea of how many thousands of plants I have planted here.

A lot of the hosta experts are always posting don't even plant hosta under a maple.
We have a huge rhodie with a mature maple growing right in the center of it and they seem to get along very well.

Rhodies don't really do well with damp soil. They get a lot of fungus if they are too wet.

Pam, Have you gotten any closer to acting on the electric leaf machine?

Electric shears shouldn't be hard to find - try any hardware store. Here's a rechargable set that includes interchangable grass/hedge blades.

Thanks, Hart. I got the impression that Teri was talking about something a bit lighter weight than that. I also think they had a long thin set of blades, similar to a scissor. She didn't mention it coming with Hedge clippers. This was after she'd broken her wrist, i think.

Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Just saw this one. Yep you are right first thing I do when I head out side is listen for the sound of power tools. Rolling on the floor laughing
Love that leaf vac. Years ago we had a tractor with a yard vac attachment it was a pull behind cart. Boy the yard always looked so nice. Now Ric is hand mowing most of the yard and bagging it. That's a lot of work. I'd like to get one of those turn on a dime riding mowers all the comerical guys use but much smaller for the yard. With the new beds and things he doesn't use the bigger riding tractor in the yard anymore. Josh bought Ric some big honkin leaf blower for Father Day this year. We haven't used it much yet guess we will be trying it out soon. Hilarious!

I'm just seeing this too. Stormy, I think all of the electric clippers are more or less like these, not like scissors. I don't imagine they're heavy. The battery might add some weight but I had electric grass clippers years ago and they weren't heavy at all.
