Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by aradam2978 Found the secret to make this run better and move more air
Now this may void any warranties, but my last Echo blower is 20 yrs old and still runs, I wanted something newer and easy starting as soon as I got this home it made me mad full throttle it didnt have have much go power or blowing power it worked but wasnt like my old one, pulled carb off made sure butterfly was opening all the way and it was, after 15-20 minutes of looking it over i noticed a stack of metal plates over exhaust port took off the 5 screws and found a restriction plate removed and put back together and started it up and man this thing woke up and works awesome it did increase exhaust noise a small amount but it works awesome now i will also show plate i removed

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Daniel The best DIY blower for around the house!
Great blower for around the house and yard. I do my gutters with this unit. Usually I use a mulcher blade on my riding mower and need to followup with the blower to breakup and spread out cutting. Work well very satisfied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stupendous Works Great - READ THE MANUAL!
I read the manual and discovered two things I didn’t see in other reviews before purchasing. 1) Use 89 octane or higher (Regular isn’t enough) which may contain up to 10% ethanol. The pre-mix sold at Home Depot is 50:1, ethanol-free, 93 octane. 2) Allow engine to warm up for 3 minutes before use then gradually depress throttle to increase RPM. I really like this blower so far. The tank holds about 1/8 gallon so I bought 1 gallon of premium and mixed with Echo oil. I have used about 2 tanks every 3 weeks. I use the warm up time to clean my rock and barkdust areas since this blower is powerful enough to move some rocks at full throttle.

Not strong enough for the easiest of tasks. Returned it and bought a larger back pack unit.
