Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 39 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for the price I looked over a variety at the store to test for weight and costs. When this one went on sale and I had a store credit, I snatched it up. It is a little heavy for a 5'2" lady but I was able to use it continuously for about 3 hours (big back yard) with no major problems. It is louder than my last blower so I will have to use ear plugs next time. I only used one of the two blower options and not the sucker option. However, based on the blower option I used (pivoting head) I am sure I am going to love the other options too. It did a great job on dry and wet leaves and a ton of gumballs. A definite recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it..has a lot of power. I have a large backyard and it took me about 1 1/2 hours to blow all the leaves. January 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good,, love it I love the way it blows the greens and the way it shredded it, so powerful. light weight even for woman, the only thing it is noisy, but not that much. you have to purchase the extension from Wallmart for $24 for the 50 feet. December 8, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good to have in the arsenal! I bought this on sale, cost of one visit from my neighborhood leaf-blower-gang. The machine does exactly what it says on the box. It's noisy but high speed motors are noisy by nature. The attachments are a nuisance to mount AND dismount as they use a "tight fit" methodology in order to secure the pipes and fan cover to the body. And "tight" is what I mean. Everything else works as needed. BTW, if you have chip or bark mulch, you may not want to use such a machine too much as the light weight chunks of wood can be easily sucked up. February 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Replacement This product was easily assembled and turned out to be more efficient that the model it replaced. August 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent for the price! I'm 6'2" so I don't think the weight is an issue, but I could see how a smaller person might. The quick change parts are not the smoothest..., and can be challenging. There is nothing to keep the plug attached, so go old school and tie the cord in a nott - problem solved. Different blowing power levels are a nice feature. Easy on beats the pants off gas powered blowers. June 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good easy to use leaf blower & mulcher Came with instructions Easy to assemble even i'm a small woman Easy to use, dial selection to choose medium or strong strength A little heavy for me but if want powerful tool, it is difficult to be lightweight, candles don't burn on both ends! Quite noisy, so prepare to wear ear-plugs ;) Don't forget to get/have an extension cord, the power cord comes with it is less than a foot long XD April 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I'm very pleased with this This is a very powerful electric blower. It is easy to use and works great! July 8, 2014
