Answer: 
A blower is a blower, while a blower/vacuum has an attachment that you install that converts it to suction only. You can use it as either a blower, or a vacuum. But you must change out the attachment to convert it between the two.

Answer: 
Just like a weed wacker.
Push the primer bulb 6 times.
Move the choke to the start position.
Squeeze and hold the trigger and pull the pull cord.
After it starts move the choke switch to the warm up position.
After 30-60 seconds move the choke switch to the run position.

Answer: 
Since its gas powered it uses a pull cord like most gas engines. It has the starting directions written right on the motor by the pull cord

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Poor Performance When It Finally Starts Someone stole our leaf blower late last Summer so I was really in a pinch to find a replacement quickly. This Southland blower seemed to fit the bill perfectly, a low-cost model with adequate power and not a lot of extra frills. It actually seemed very similar in price and performance to our old blower that disappeared. When it arrived, I actually liked the packaging and instructions much better than our old blower. The starting instructions are right on the engine, and are clearly laid out step-by-step. Additionally the cone on the end of the tube seemed like the perfect way to focus the airflow and avoid swirling debris in enclosed places like the garage. I was eager to fire it up and get caught up clearing the leaves. I had some fresh gas, but since this is my only piece of 2-cycle power equipment I had to buy a small gas canister to mix the oil. Once done, I filled the tank and followed the starting instructions. I immediately noticed that it was much harder to start than I expected, but I chalked that up to it being a cold start of a new engine. Once warmed up and running, the air output with the nozzle on seemed shockingly low, so I tried taking the nozzle off. Without the nozzle on the end of the tube the airflow is much stronger, but pulling the throttle trigger more than halfway results in the engine starting to choke. With the nozzle on, the engine revs up great, but the airflow is nearly useless. I am not able to get anywhere near half the rated velocity or airflow out of this blower no matter what I do. To make matters worse, the warm blower isn't much easier to start than cold, and after a few hours of cooling down it is again as hard to start as if it had been sitting for years. If you only have light duty blowing to do and don't need nearly as much power as the specs for this blower claim, this could meet your basic blower needs at a very low cost. However if you ever want to have a little more power, or don't want to deal with the headaches of trying to get this blower started and keep it running, I would advise spending a little more for a much better blower.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lackluster Best I can give this blower is an average rating. Pros: it's super simple to use. Actually, it couldn't be simpler. The blower gives you step by step instructions to get it started and running and it woks every time. Cons: Lack of power. This states that it's a 170mph blower, but I couldn't get more than about 115mph out of it. It blows leaves around, but it doesn't REALLY blow them around like you might expect. I can't use this to clean out my garden beds, it just doesn't have the necessary oomph. It works ok for cleaning debris off my porch or blowing around the trimmings from cutting my lawn.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A Good Average Blower. The Southland XT 25cc Gas Blower is built with new starting technology. The manufacturer say that it has a 3 pull easy start fuel system, and it is correct. At the initial testing, it started at second pull. The blower has low vibration and better balance. I am a little skeptical about the 170 mph air speed. The blower comes with a bottle of 2 cycle engine oil for initial use, which is good for 1 gallon of gasoline. This is an average blower, works very well for occasional use for a home owner. October 15, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Blower at a Great Price I've been using a corded leaf blower for a few years now. While it does the job, it gets a little frustrating fighting with extension cords. It's also a chore maneuvering around trees, hedges, solar lights, and cars. Despite those issues I've been reluctant to add another gas powered yard tool to my arsenal. This Southland 170 mph 400 CFM Gas Leaf Blower has a 2 cycle gas engine. It is a handheld blower that's relatively small and light weight. Assembly is super simple. The air outlet tube consist of three interlocking pieces. Once attached, you just add fuel. This blower requires a 40:1 gas to oil fuel mix. A small bottle of oil is included but I used and prefer to use premixed fuel. It's easy to use, last longer, and doesn't contain ethanol. Starting the blower is fairly simple and with the instructions are right on the blower you can't go wrong. My blower started right up but took a couple of minutes to get warmed up enough to use. This blower did an excellent job cleaning up the dirt and grass from what I hope is the last yard work I will have to do this year. I love that the outlet tube is easy to remove. That makes this blower require less space to store. The only con I have was mentioned in detail in another review. The fuel tube inside the tank is situated to where the blower may not get fuel even when there is still some in the tank. What that means is that you will have to keep the tank as full as possible rather than using all the fuel in the tank up then refilling it. Despite that one hitch, this is a solid blower at a great price point. It's not for heavy duty use but I definitely recommend it for average home use. November 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful Engine & Heavy Duty Leaf Blower The Southland Leaf Blower is exactly what I needed for autumn cleanup and corralling thousands upon thousands of leaves in my yard. E.A.S.Y. S.T.A.R.T. It's such an easy to operate power tool that you forget you're actually working, because it's so fun ! The leaf blower comes with a bottle of oil that you will mix into a gallon of gasoline. You should have a designated one gallon capacity gas can for holding the fuel for the 2-cycle leaf blower. I am very happy with the quality and performance of the Southland Leaf Blower. October 20, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by It works... This little blower works fairly well. It is simple to assemble, and "very" easy to start, which I really like. It seems underpowered though, and has a difficult time moving leaves that are damp or wet. I was sorely disappointed in that. The noise level is a little more than I anticipated, and it seems to run out of fuel quickly, though it still has some fuel in the tank. It seems that the fuel pickup doesn't scavenge very well. The filler neck angle is such that when the tank is full and the blower is resting level, fuel sits against the cap. You cannot fill the tank all the way and avoid that. In general, the blower works and for the price it'll do what the average homeowner needs. It'll do, but it's certainly not the best blower available. April 27, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Overrated Blower is comparable to an electric blower. The 170 mph is a big stretch from the 100+ it puts out. Will barely move a wet leaf and just moves other debris. The blower is very heavy for a 25cc unit and is cumbersome to use. It is also very loud. Unit would not stay running when I first started it. I had to hold it tipped down at a 90 degree angle so it would run, Took the fuel line out of the tank and cut it down after using a bright light to see it was terminating and about the 2/3 level of the tank. It is what it is, a $100 blower. A cheap spare to have around. December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well put together and Light as a Feather! This little handheld Gas Leaf Blower is extremely powerful. The Leaf Blower started easily each time with the pull cord. One tank of fuel was still half full after blowing leaves from my entire back and side yards. I am thoroughly impressed with the power and performance and fuel economy of the blower. The only negative I experienced was the loudness of the blower. It's louder than I expected. November 8, 2015
