You have good idea though. Keep it separate.
That's what I used to do, but brain faded and picked up the wrong red can.

That's the best way to do it.

Also Stihl premix smells good in a weird way.

we have an electric one that will suck up the leaves as well as blow them. not sure if a gas one will do that or not. but it's way easier than bagging.
few years ago we kinda got lazy and just starting mowing over the leaves though to "mulch" them up. haha

Just bought a Toro 51609 blower/mulcher, it had some decent reviews and the price was reasonable. I'll submit a review once I've had a chance to use it.

I did my backyard - filled with shrubs, decks, obstacles - in under 20 minutes. That was a 2 hour job with the old hair dryer electric POS.

Take it back and get a Stihl backpack. If you have to do some serious work with that thing for anything over 5 minutes you will be so glad you have a backpack.

Backpack has a throttle lock so you can hold it at varying speeds without having to hold the throttle, allows you to use longer blow wands and remove them while the unit is running and just a whole lot more powerful.

Oh, and using the super long extension with u joint to reach and blow out leaves out of the eaves on the roof would be a beating with a handheld. Just my .02

The Husqvarna backpack for $299 is a good model. However, I usually just mow over the leaves with a rear bagger and it seems to be the best option for me. Our lawn is about a half acre with minimal slope- and the leaves are mostly red maple and swamp white oak.
