Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jmorr excellent value
I have a smaller yard about .75 acre and I didn't need the power of some of the more expensive models. I read all of the reviews before purchasing this and I have to say that I disagree with some of the issues people discussed. I find it very easy to start, one pull does it each time. You do hae to make sure it is properly primed but it is one pull everytime. I also find the blower is very easy to manuever over different types of terrain. I gave only a good on features becuase I wish that there was a throttle control. Sometimes it would be helpful to be able to slow it down. Overall well worth the money.

EASY TO ASSEMBLE AND THIS MACHINE WORKS REALLY WELL. LIVE IN AN AREA WITH LOTS OF TREES. THIS BLOWER FAR EXCEEDS MY EXPECTATIONS AND HANDS DOWN BEATS THE BACK PACK BLOWER AND THE PRICE IS A REAL VALUE.
DO YOUR SELF A FAVOR AND BUY ONE. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fpny Southland gas leaf blower
The blower works pretty well once you got it started. The wind speed is actually a little lower than what I expected since it's rated at 150mph. The unit is a little difficult to start if you followed the instructions printed on the unit, but if you prime the button 5 to 6 times before you try to start it instead of the 3 times like the printed instruction suggested. The blower will usually stars without any problems.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jerry 150 MPH 1,200 CFM Walk-Behind Gas Leaf Blower
Product started almost right away but made a terrible sound... so bad I though it was defective but it was the exhaust flap adjuster which wasn't tightened properly at the factory. Tightened it and it works like a champ now. High marks across the board except for a slight quality control issue with the exhaust flap. Average score for features as it only works at full throttle which is mostly okay except at the end when piling leaves for municipal pickup. Highly recommend it for value, ease of use and for people over 50 who need a little help. I call it my landscaper in a box!

Have had this unit for one seasons of leaf blowing. It was one of the best investments of the fall season. I live in a wooded area and leaf removal from my yard use to be an all day effort. Now I do it in less time then it takes me to mow my yard. I have used backpack blowers in the past for this work and this blows those away!! :) If you have a LOT of leaves this is the way to go.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TimberFramer Worst Quality Control
I bought this leaf blower online a month ago and when it arrived I went to use it the wheel fell off. It was missing the end cap and washer. I also noticed the foam on the handle was missing also. I contacted Southland customer service. They told me the end cap was back ordered. After two weeks I contacted them to find out the status and I was told they had just come in an the parts would be shipped out that week. A week later I still have not received anything from them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Charlie Good Quality...Works as Intended....Can be hard to start
Nice quality. Mine had a wheel damaged in UPS shipping. Southland sent me a new wheel with no problems. Very courteous customer service. Mine started on the first pull when brand new. However, since then starting has been inconsistent. Sometimes it starts right up sometimes not. Doesn't seem to matter whether the engine is hot or cold. Gasoline is the same I use in my lawnmower and that has no such problem.

Machine works great on mostly flat spaces. Uneven surfaces present a bit of a challenge/bit more work. This is because of the 3 wheel design in my opinion but the unit also saved me a great amount of time.
Suggestions, easier access to oil plug, better packaging process- misc washers and nuts floating in box, fuel gauge on cap, option to lock out from wheel or perhaps bigger front wheel.
Overall I would purchase again at this price point.
