Looking a bit like a mop with the tip of a scoop this tool has a folding cage that holds the bag open and a small thin "ramp" that leads the leaves you sweep into the bag. You don't have to pick it up and put the leaves in the bag, they're already there.

       I like the idea of not having to hold open the leaf bag by hand, but I can't picture how this works.   

       Presumably there are either rake-teeth or brush-bristles or a dustpan lip to provide impetus to the leaves. But are these mobile or stationary in relation to this ramp you speak of?

       I broke a good tea strainer over the weekend, and I'm down to using the cheaper one I have.

       OK, so this is basically a tool for converting an ordinary bin- bag into a sort of butterfly net with which to scoop up leaves?

       Ian's down to his last tea-strainer. This is serious.

       You're assuming he needs it for making tea. He failed to explain how he broke it.

       Under breaking strain, presumably.

       How might one strain after a new strain of tea?

       Dry leaves burn acceptably well.   

       Presumably the motive for collecting the leaves is so that they can be dried thoroughly prior to burning ?

       So is the whole thing flat on one side, Like a half-round garbage can with the bottom cut out, and a ramp lip on the flat side to facilitate sweeping into?

       Thasnk you, [nomocrow]; that makes it much clearer.

       More like a dustpan, I think.
