Rated 5 out of 5Â by Alfred The best blower on the market!
I first purchased an EGO 56v battery blower. After 10 minutes at full speed the battery died. After 2 uses, I called their customer and all they wanted to do was sell me a more improved battery for $199.00 which is the same cost of the full unit.. There was no interest on their part to help or satisfy me, their customer. Hence, I packed up the unit and returned for a full refund.
After reading the reviews on the Hitachi 2 stroke gas blower, I decided to give it a try...what an outstanding unit. Well made and lightweight. The power of this unit exceeded my expectations and I could not be happier. Starts every time on first pull after pumping the fuel bulb 3 or 4 times. I would recommend this blower to anyone who wants excellent power to get the job done right. Thanks Hitachi for make a well made, reliable and reasonably priced unit. It really does a fantastic job at my home!

This is the best leaf blower I've owned. If starts easily, is well balanced and the engine speed is easy to control. This is a keeper!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Terry Gas powered Hand held blower
Having a farm, something always needs cleaned off or out, this is ideal, no cord, easy starting and gets into areas which used to just have to stay dirty or run the compressor to try to get it. Love this thing should have made this purchase long ago saves about half a day cleaning out the combine, swather, tractors and bailer. Leaving all that dust and debris in there attracts moisture which starts things rusting and increases the maintenance cost of the equipment. Also attracts mice looking for a free meal, should cut down on mice eating the wiring.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by buyer Good blower
Pros: Powerful for the size, throttle in trigger, fuel efficient, easy starting and stable consistent running, light weight, 7yr consumer warranty, appears well made (quality construction).
Cons: does have powerful suction on left side of machine that does tend to draw in any loose clothing blocking airflow. While this can be an annoyance its probably one of the design reasons why this machine moves so much air. In my opinion the power out weighs the minor annoyance.
Other thoughts: This machine does not have a vacuum option which after owning several others that did, I found them to be more trouble than they were worth.
While only time will tell, so far I like the machine and would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mike Hitachi blower > awesome!
EXCELLENT leaf blower. I bought this because it was rated very highly, and so many people said
"starts first pull". It DOES!. NONE of my previous S---s blowers EVER did this. ALWAYHS fighting them.
One thing I noticed,, VERY compact and lightweight, so it's very easy to maneuver around play toys, etc.
(wife has a daycare - tons of toys). The only thing it doesn't have is "cruise control".
But the trigger is weighted so lightly that I don't miss it. Works extremely well and is good on gas. I've been happy with all my Hitachi tools. I'd definitely buy one again.
