I really find the Greystone vacuum very helpful around the school grounds, I pick up leaves, grass cuttings (fresh and old) and small twigs with great ease now. I also clean out all the drains of all dirt and mud and even water, I go along the fence lines and collect rubbish from the schoolyards with it too. It is the best investment we have ever made in terms of helping around the school grounds. It is really fantastic!! Many thanks for a wonderful product.
