I've gotten so up me own hole on the gardening front that I no longer think talking about power tools is manly. only labor carried out wearing vests powered by sandwiches can be discussed.
If you want to talk hand sweeping the whole gaff into a wheelbarrow though...
PROS: it will probably move leaves and things around. It will probably take less time than sweeping and wheelbarrowing. a manufactured need for a pre-disposed perception of household appearance will be satisfied.
CONS: fuel must be mined from petrified locations on earth for the smelting of steel, the forming of plastic and finite global copper supplies used in the motor construction. typically the switching will be a little weak and should break within 4-5 years at which point it becomes scrap.
