Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 323 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! May 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product! 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! May 31, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Better than expected ! The Hitachi 23.9 cc 170 mph 441 CFM Hand Held Gas Blower was very well rated on a few other sites. I needed a new gas blower and decided to give this unit a try. The Home Depot does not stock this unit, but sells it on line with free shipping. After the order was placed it took about a week to get here. The blower was fairly easy to assemble, and after fueling took two pulls to start. I have used it to blow leaves and light snow. it has worked very well for both tasks. The blower starts easily, and is fairly quiet, the only issue seems to be the switch to shut it off is covered by a protective plastic cover which gets very stiff when temps get below 60 degrees. All in all a good value! January 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product, Happy so far with purchase! I had been previously using a blower attachment on another brand Weed Eater. It was clumsy, heavy, took a few times to start up and didn't do what I needed it to do so I decided to upgrade to an actual hand held blower. I needed it to be light, powerful and affordable. I did a LOT of research and the Hitachi seemed to fit the bill. A lot of my decision was based off of reviews like this. So far the product has lived up to the hype. It's super light, very powerful and its doing the job I hoped it would. We'll see if it stands the test of time but as of now, I do recommend this product for DIY homeowner. January 20, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 2, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk Do not purchase this blower. I bought it in May 2014 and it stopped working in January. Home Depot will not exchange or return. Hitachi will only repair through an authorized service repair center. The closest one is over two hours away. The do not stand behind their product. January 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The best tool I have ever purchased This is my 3d leaf blower and not only the best blower I have ever owned/used but the best tool I have ever owned/used. It always starts on the first pull and never loses power no matter how long I use it. I used it all fall removing leaves and debris but the biggest benefit I have received is removing SNOW from my driveway, sidewalks and even the road in front of my house. I thought I would give it a try when we got a light snow and it worked perfectly. A few days later we got a heavier snow and I was able to use it on that. It worked so well that I went all around the neighborhood blowing snow to the side of the road. I don't expect it to work on heavier, wet snow but I have been able to set my snow thrower aside for the time being. January 8, 2014
