Re-purposed our old Vax, ideal tool with a long reach and, much to my surprise, the vacuum filter didn't get clogged! Probably because the leaves were damp & heavy and fell into the base.
Beats a leaf blower hands down!
Wish I'd started using it years ago instead of either a plank of lugging all the pots off the edges to remove the fine fine netting (heron) & safety (grandchildren).

Way to go! I don't get many leaves since the huge maple died and the apples were trimmed way back. There is no way I can do anti leaf netting, do have anti heron netting.

I come up with solutions like this from time to time and then wonder "why did it take me so long to figure that out!" Good for you for lightening the load!
