Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by YardGuy Good Buy
Used to take 4 hours using a hand held electric blower. Now only an hour. Really does blow the leaves. BUT the front wheel does get stuck in softer parts of the lawn and around raised tree roots. Other than that it's one of my favorite yard tools. From 4 to 1 hour is a no brainer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Moma power mate walk behind leaf blower
I recently purchased a powermate walk behind leaf blower. This is one of the best purchases I've ever made. Now instead of being out in the yard for hours with a hand held blower,I'm only out there for about an hour.

Hard to handle on sloped areas, and potholes grab the front wheel making the unit require a lot of manhandling. Rear wheels are too narrow, causing the unit to have poor traction and to create ruts if the ground is a bit wet. The rear wheels would be better if pneumatic. Otherwise, plenty of power, lots of airflow, and built solidly. Too new to have experienced the carburetor issues others speak about, but we have to deal with ethanol which small engines do not like.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by aericb Very good for entry level
The first machine I received, I had to return to the store - damaged in shipping. The return and pick-up of the new machine went without a hitch. This is an entry level machine - no frills. About 10 - 15 minutes to unbox, put together and start blowing. I'm using on a 4 acre wooded piece of property, plenty of leaves.The property is not level and posed some problems for the machine and myself, as the machine is not self propelled. I built a cart that attaches to the front of my lawn tractor and the blower fits in the cart and I use the tractor to push the blower around. Problem solved. There was some talk about carb failure after a years use and winter storage. The answer to that, empty the tank, run the motor dry and store with white gas in the tank.
To start the motor I turn the switch to on, push the primer bulb twice and pull the cord - I've never pulled more than four times to start. I use regular unleaded with fuel preservative. I don't think you can beat it for the price, would I liked to have gotten a bigger, better machine, you bet - But for the money I had to spend this worked out wonderful.

Do not buy runs good for about an hour than shuts off and will not restart until you take the carb off and clean it second season with this machine I have had to do it for times. But if u want to look at it while u rake the leaves it a good purchase

I got this blower last year, and this year it is in the shop having the carbirator rebuilt/cleaned. Their service rep says it is not designed to hold gasoline for longer than 3 weeks or you ruin the carb! Seriously?!?!?! Give me a break.
