Ask at a hardware store, like the one next to TelMex. Many have a catalog and can order what you want from Guad.

When I went looking for one a few years ago I had to go to Guad and at Home Depot the small one was at that time $820p, the same thing NOB is about $35. So, I bought NOB and imported it for my gardener. And, as far as neighbors not liking it? - nobody blows leaves at midnight unlike music until all hours and barking dogs with no "off" switch.

In the dry season you will be contributing to poor air quality. These machines do not know the difference between grass leaves dirt dust or dried doggy do: everything gets air borne. I have asked our gardeners to never use them. Brooms are so simple & do not spoil the air quality.

Oh please, no more leaf blowers. They are so noisy as compared to the nice old fashioned swish of a homemade mexican broom. Our neighbour has one and I would like to grab it and throw it into the lake. He revs it up and down up and down to get a leaf out of a crack. Sooo annoying. Please lets not add more noise to our Enviroment.

In my case we had eight foot compound walls, so that didn't work out - although it didn't stop me from chucking fallen palm fronds over the wall into the vacant lot next door as is traditional locally - and to be fair, several of the palms were on the lot line so depending on the wind, most fell over there anyway, I just added to the collection.

My leaf blower is also a vacuumn, so leaves are sucked up, chewed up, and spewed into a bag. Great if you have a compost heap! While I, too, don't especially like the noise, it is easier on this ole girl's back to heft the blower/vacuumn than to swish a broom. Sorry, I don't have a gardener, but maybe soon. He will like the instrument, too. I'm sure.
