I bought this "sweeper" to replace a Sharper Image that I had for 20 years. It has enough power to clean sidewalks, decks, and other small jobs. It only has one speed, only drawback on this model. Out of the box, charged the battery for a couple of hours, then used it for about 20 minutes. Put battery back on charger, charged to full in less than 20 minutes. I am very satisfied with this sweeper. It is NOT a blower, do not expect it to perform as one. Great for small clean ups, ect. I looked at several sweeper brands in this price range, and decided to go with the Craftsman brand. Can't go wrong with Craftsman, I have several tools over 25 years old still working just fine.
it would not blow trash off the deck
light weight.Battery lasts a long time.
Perfect for blowing out the garage or driveway. Nothing heavy duty but great for lightweight work.
