We had a whole bunch of rain and that's why you see all the weeds now. In New Mexico I used to see a lot of these being used. Saves your back and knees, but can be dangerous close to the house. Red Dragon Propane Weed Burner Backpack Kit, Propane Torches - GEMPLER'S

Hmm... Maybe you could put a catch-can in the vac line such that leaves will get pulled into the waste area, but anything heavier (ie, gravel) will travel into the can.

You might run into some environmental laws dealing with air quality.

We're talking about a little grass coming through the gravel. If you've ever used one of these (I have many times) you wouldn't be concerned.

Besides, I was just offering a less expensive option to what you posted. Does the more expensive version pose less environmental and fire concerns.
