Great Deal! Awesome Unit!
Absolutely the best yard tool purchase I have ever made. The price is unbelievable for a unit as powerful as the pros use! Easy to assemble. Look like the pros with this consumer friendly model backpack blower. It has amazing power, and isn't heavy at all. I highly recommend it!

18 months and still works great.
Bought this blower in October of 2019 and it's still working great, starts after just one choke pull. I've exclusively used premixed fuel so maybe that's helped. But overall I've been very happy with it and would recommend it. It's a great alternative to the other higher priced backpack blowers.

Worked great for a few months
Great blower the first year . It ran like a beast . I put stabil in it and ran in until the tank was empty before winter. Started right up this spring. It will run 5 minutes then die. It is very hard to start. I replaced the fuel filter and spark plug. when it dies it will not start for about 6 hours after wards. I wish i had the receipt i would return this and get an Echo

This is actually a very good blower!!!
I see a lot of people complaining that the unit will not start the following year after storing for the season. I can tell you that if you buy the ethanol-free, pre-mixed Tru Fuel 50:1 for this unit instead of gas from the local station, you will have zero problems with this blower. I am in my 3rd year with it, and it works flawlessly. Ethanol is not your friend when it comes to 2-cycle engines (any engine for that matter). I don't even use it in my boat. I use ethanol-free marine grade fuel, which is basically what Tru Fuel pre-mix is. The fuel is a bit more $$$, but it will save you the hassles. I use it in ALL of my 2-cycle equipment, and some of it is going on 10 years old.
Do not buy! Poulan worst ever!
I Would like to give this zero stars..... I'm making it my mission to warn people about how poor these products are.... NEVER starts until you pull it for like 30 minutes.... then after a short while it shuts off and then that's it for the day! Won't start again. I've taken it back and they tell me it's "fixed"...ha! I have had several gas blowers and but far Poulan is the worst.... They plain just don't run! STAY far away..... DO NOT buy!

Good performance - terrible at starting
I bought this about a month ago and I've used it about 4-5 times. When it works it's great. Here's the problem - it absolutely won't start when it's hot (or even warm). If I run it for 30 minutes and shut it off to then do some raking by hand, it won't start back up again. This has happened every single time I've used it. I usually wauit about 20 minutes and start afresh and then it'll start. I don't get the problem!

Won’t crank
This was a Christmas gift 1 year ago. Worked great for 6 months, then while using it It just cut off and I have been unable to get it to crank again. It will cost as much to get it repaired as it will to buy a new one.
by JW Black
This is the second one I bought . Stupid me. The first one ran fine for a little while then same thing , no power , bogs down with more gas..figured I may have screwed up gas mix . After trying all the on line fix I bought another , what a dope , same thing about a year latter . No more poplin products , ever
by Bob63
Dont buy this it caught on fire while I was using.
Please do yourself a favor and dont buy this while i was blowing leaves from my yard my blower started smoking so i took it off my back and it would not shut off even when I put it on the off switch so I had to put it onto choke and it finally stalled and it could have been a lot worse please don't buy this blower .
