3. Hardly.

Itís a dearly-held myth among blower-haters that those who use them are uncaring, messy, entitled SOBs who are secretly cackling over waking their neighbors at 6:30 on a weekend morning, and leaving messes all over their property. Itís a dumb stereotype, and absolutely not my experience with people who use a very simple labor-saving device to handle their yards exactly like they would if they were hand-raking it all. Though without a doubt there are some we have all seen doing that with blowers AND WITH RAKES, and who deserve shaming.

You sound pretty defensive. Maybe thereís a reason.
