My DR Lawn and Leaf Vacuum Review

DR Lawn and Leaf Vacuum
If you live in the country or have a large yard with lots of trees, you need to read this article!  We live in the country and have lots of trees around the house. Don't get me wrong, I love my trees, we looked for years for just the right place in the country with lots of trees. I also love spring, but spring also used to mean that I had to rake leaves. I know, raking is good exercise, but parts of my yard are almost a foot deep in leaves! Last year I raked, and took to the burn pile, 182 wheelbarrows full of leaves. Don’t ask why I counted, you really don’t want to know! Now, exercise is one thing, but that is crazy, it took me weeks to get all that done!

Leaves in my yard at the beginning of spring!

After just 1 pass with the DR Lawn and Leaf Vac!

 Purchasing the DR Lawn Vacuum is one of the best things I have ever done! But as you know, all the product advertisements you see, will only tell you the good things about the product. I am going to give you the good, as well as the areas that I think could use a little improvement. However, if I had to do it over again, I would still make the same purchase.  Read more ...
