Great Blower

I've only used this blower a few times, but so far so good.  It was a little difficult to start the first time, but that was expected and I didn't use the speed start.  The pull start takes very little effort now, and starts on the first or second pull every time.  These 2-cycle motors get more difficult to start as time goes on, so it's good to have the option of the Speed Start.  The power of this blower is exceptional for a handheld model.  It is definitely better than any blower I've ever had, and it is worth the cost.

Didn't run right, right out of the box.
Wouldn't idle unless the choke was on, and then roughly. It also would bog down after 1/2 throttle. Brought it right back to Sears, and paid an up charge for a Husqvarna.

Good blower

I've owned it now for about a year, it gets HEAVY use and after about a year its started to experience some difficulty starting, but after the 3rd or 4th pull we are in business. It works great. the vacuum attachment is a little cumbersome to attach, but works good. This has proven to be a GREAT UNIT over the time and trust me I use it ALOT!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

blower review

I did not like the "LOW" MPH rating nor the speed start so I returned it for a refund.

Great Purchase

I purchased this item after exploring many other brands.I followed the instructions for starting and it fired right up. I ran it for almost three hours straight with absolutely no problems even after running it completely out of gas about three quarters of the way through blowing leaves. Filled it back up and fired it up again. I haven't used the vacuum attachment yet so I can't comment on that. As for the blower worked great for my 1/3 acre yard.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

I'm loving it so far, but I will be back in a year to Re-Review

This is so easy to start with my drill. It is enough power for my lawn and I am in a corner lot with 1,500 square foot yard. Great for clearing drive ways and walk ways... I use it to clear a tree car garage a side walk and a walk way up to my front door and it does it with ease. I recommend this product for sure.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

I really like it - very good !

I purchased this blower mainly for the speed start. I broke my arm in 2 places and have a very difficult time with pull cords. After reading the reviews I was a little hesitant but made the purchase anyway. With much hesitation I pulled this out for the first time last weekend to do some much needed clean up in the yard. I used the speed start and it started up the first try. I thought that it was a bit sluggish at first but after a couple minutes of warm up (it was about 35 outside) it ran great! It plowed thru inches of wet leaves in my flower beds and cleared my walkways of dirt and other debris - ran really well thru the whole clean up and I had a lot - a whole acre with lots of mature trees. I havent used the vac attachment yet and most likely will not. I just have to much so the vac won't do me much good.

lifespan - four tanks of fuel

I have pine bark mulch in some of my flower gardens and the twigs and mulch that were accidentily sucked up have worn out the plastic where the vacuum tube connects to the motor. My old weed-eater machine had metal blades to shred the leaves. This new machine does not handle anything other than small, dry leaves.
