There is no good electric leach munching technology.
You can sling one of those blowers over your shoulder
and use in suck 'n' chew mode. Slow. You can put the
blower on blow and blow toward a tarp which you have
held down with stakes or rocks. Also slow. You can
use a grind 'em up chew em up riding mower, which I
found very efficient, but it won't work for non-lawn
Sears makes for $300 or so a gasoline chipper vac which
has suck and grind capabilities, as well as grind up
stick capabilities. I don't really find it that useful
and it might be hard on non-lawn garden plants.
And rakes. ugh. But why rake the non-lawn part of the
yard? Leaves are good mulch.
