Rated 4 out of 5Â by BDinPutnam Perfect if a little heavy
Hands down, this is my favorite power tool purchase of 2013.
Powerful, easy to maintain, when prepped right starts on the first/second pull every time. Positively sips fuel- I fill it twice- MAYBE three times at the most- over the course of several hours on 3+ heavily wooded acres.
The only (minor) cons are:
1. The fuel tank can be a little difficult to fill; I use a funnel and that seems to work just fine.
2. After several hours it WILL make your shoulders hurt.
3. The o-ring on the tube (holds the tube to the unit) needs to be tightend before every use. With that said, I use it for a lot longer at a time than most people probably.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Niloc In the repair shop more than in use
Purchased 2 years ago. Worked great for 4 weeks and then crapped out. Had the carburetor adjusted, then worked great for 3 weeks and crapped out again. I brought it to repair shop the following spring and had the carburetor adjusted again. Worked OK for 3 weeks crapped out again. Same thing another 2 times. I've tried ethanol free gas....still craps out....Carburetor is junk

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DNHLawnscaping Great unit, performs well, no regrets
I purchased one of these a couple of months ago. It works great! At first it would smoke a little until warm, but only the first few times I ran it. The instructions to start say move switch to on/low throttle, push primer bubble 8x, turn choke on, pull up to 8x, if not start, repeat. Not mine. I prime 5 or 6 times, turn choke on, pull, it starts 1st pull, turn choke off and it keeps running until I turn it off. Good power. I don't have a lot of experience with commercial gas powered blowers, but there is not much that this one won't move. I mainly use it for blowing grass, but clumped up wet leaves were no trouble. Overall a great product. Would I purchase again? Definitely.

Blower Stands up to my commercial use good for small piles of leafs or blowing off drive ways but if your looking to move large amounts of leafs or wet leafs I would recommend a bigger one with 700 or more cfm's.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by StopNMow865 Had one of these for years, used commercially and works like a champ!
I bought one of these from Home Depot about 6 years ago now. I run a small lawn care business in the summer on the side and use this blower on my own home and all my customers lawns as well. It starts by the 2nd pull every single time guaranteed. Never had any issue with any fuel or mix I've ever used. I was surprised to see a couple of 1 star reviews so I felt compelled to leave this one to let folks know that this is a nice product and when mine dies I'll quickly buy another one.
