I looked at a Stihl leaf sucker/shredder a couple of weeks ago that was
kind of interesting. It was on sale at the local fix-it shop for $279.
(I let it go cuz I'm a cheapskate)

You also could wait for a very windy day to blow the leaves. :-) A long
hose -- at least 3/8" -- from an air compressor on the ground would
handle that.
