Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sarah Great Blower
So I've had this blower for awhile and have been waiting for a chance to use. We have piles of leaves so finally it had its moment to shine. First of all, set up is easy. All you need to do is attache the handle bar, add oil and gas and then it is ready to use. Starting it up was easy--it started on its first try. I found the engine to be fairly powerful. I was impressed with how easy it is to move around. It did a great job with the leaves. I had a couple of things that I wish it had. There is no idle function or throttle to slow down the speed. Otherwise I loved it and highly recommend it!

I was looking for something that wasn't a back breaker. This is a great tool. It is as easy as a walk behind mower and has plenty of power to move leaves and debris from the yard and makes pretty quick work of it. The Blower has lots of power and was able to move the large piles of leaves to the edge of the property without scattering the leaves everywhere. As I get a little older my back just can't handle the rakes anymore and this make the job so much easier.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by alti4 Clearing the yard is easy.
This walk behind blower cleared my front yard in minutes. It has a high velocity 150 mph winds that push dirt and yard debris very easy. Side discharge with front flow attachment that is included. It took a few minutes to assemble the handle, put in the oil and gas and I was up and running. Steel fan and housing to help it last a long time. This unit started right up on the first try. Easy to push around the driveway and front yard. It blew my leaves and pine needles into a nice pile. 12" wheels make it easy to move around. Padded foam grips on the handle for comfort. 163 cc stroke engine is powerful enough for any job. One 19oz bottle of SAE oil is included. The blower is great for commercial or at home use and I am very happy with mine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by preppygirl56 Powerful and professional
This Powermate yard blower is both powerful and professional. The unit is built to last. It has a steel fan with a solid construction and large rear wheels. My husband is very impressed with the construction and performance of this unit.
The unit comes supplied with oil. The only assembly required is to attach the upper handle to the frame of the blower. This was easily done in a minute.
After adding oil and gasoline, my husband chose to change the blower discharge to the front as he cleared debris from our rear walkway.
The blower performs with a high velocity, working better than any hand blower. It clears dirt and leaves efficiently with ease. Overall, this yard tool is sturdy, easy to use and works to a high level

I purchase the Cyclone 150 you can turn it on but you cant turn it off I had to take the cap of the plug to turn it off also the 2 knobs that tie the handle together are very hard to close or open . I thought I got one lemon went to Home Depot to get another one guess what? same thing can't turn it off and the knobs are very hard to close. Bottom line don't waste your money on this.

We have come a long way in leaf blowing hardware, from back in the day, when you grandfather blew threw a straw, to today’s sophisticated machinery. While not the top brand among the yard machines, this unit works like the pros. I used it to clean my yard after a long winter and with ease this thing blew sticks, leaves and dead grass clear across the lawn. I didn’t have to rake at all. It started with ease and gives you a few different choices on output. The large rear wheels allow it to ride easily over the grass, although rocks or roots will require some jockeying. It is quite loud though, so a good pair of headphones should be used. It also is quite compact , so it fits great into smaller spaces. Overall, for the price and quality I would recommend this unit to anyone looking for a push leaf blower that makes a daunting task, much easier.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Judson Defective On Arrival
For what it’s worth, I’ve never had a bad experience with Powermate before, but I’m very disappointed with this item. Upon removing the almost completely assembled blower from the packaging (all you have to do is connect the push bar), I followed the quickstart instructions to begin using it. I added oil & then gas, only to scramble to gather rags as gas began pouring out of numerous parts of the machine (see photo) onto my garage floor. Realizing the product was obviously defective, I called their customer service line who informed me that yes, in fact, that was a defect & I would need to take it to an authorized warranty service provider to have it fixed. Unfortunately for me, the closest one authorized to do outdoor power equipment was 40 minutes away.
The technician at the service center said the blower was missing a nut on the housing and the needle valve was not properly seated. While the nut was an unusual problem, he said the needle valve issue was something they regularly saw.
The process of getting warranty work completed was complicated by the fact that I didn’t have a receipt, so given that and the fact that the repair shop is not somewhere I can easily swing by after work, it will probably be a full month or more after receipt of this item before I’m able to actually use it. I originally planned to wait until after it was repaired to write a review so I could comment on its performance. However, I decided no matter how flawlessly it performed from here on out, at best I would give it two stars, simply because an item should work out of the box. Under different circumstances, I most certainly would have returned the item and purchased another brand and/or model.
So again, I reiterate that I’ve never had any issues with Powermate products before (I own a couple), but I absolutely can’t recommend this item. If you’re still inclined to give it a go, I highly recommend you check the Powermate website to see if there’s an approved service center located in your area before purchasing this item.
