    after years of seeing others, I finally got around to doing the leaf blower trick... with a pic to prove it.

    I cleaned my stove using the leaf blower trick just the other day!

    I just handed the leaf blower to my wife and said, "Put this side of the leaf blower on top of the chimney and turn it on!" It was real easy, she didn't get any soot on her or anything! ;lol

    I don't think there is another context in which that post can be made without getting in a lot of trouble.

    I had already done a full cleaning in May, and the photo taken after about a minute, minute thirty of the blower running... still, wasn't nearly as dark as that video. Now that I have the adapter, I'll probably try it again in November/December... see how it goes with fresh ash.

    I see it and will say it again...you people are nuts. Cleaning stoves with yard equipment up on yer roof is insane, dangerous, pollutious (I made up that word) and overall just plain silly.

    Leaf blower with vacuum capabilities. I looked into the Weed eater WEB150 ($25-30) but it doesn't have the proper intake port on the bottom. You usually have to rig up a couple common inexpensive adapters to make it work but on that particular model there'd too much fartin around to get it to do its thing.

    Do a search for "leafblower".

    An electric model works best. In most situations anyways.

    I have a leaf blower kind of like the one pictured, but I always have a hard time getting it to go from blow to suck...:p
