This new product for home improvement retailer B&Q was designed to be given away with their 'Performance Power'' garden vacuum clearner / leaf blower.

Our user research showed that people have difficulty sucking leaves up the tube, especially if the ground is wet or the leaves are mixed with gravel. The rake attachment for the vacuum cleaner agitates the leaves which are then in a position to be sucked up the tube, mulched and collected in the bag. The rake is made from 100% recycled High Density Polypropylene.
