I spent the past weekend with this unit. I found I needed to get used to how to use it best. My 15 year old electric blower, still working, gives more velocity for releasing stuck damp leaves in turf. But I also discovered that this unit has more air volume for moving leaves along. So after many hours of full throttle work, I find it to be a good investment.
The 3-year warranty makes it sweeter.
The down side is that the included tubes are not sufficiently long for anyone 6' or taller.
Starting it is a snap.
Easy to use this blower. Even my teenager uses it.He says it fun to work with this. We use it almost everyday keep our property clean and has never broken down.
This blower is easy to use and does a really good job. I especially like the back pack idea as it takes the weight off one arm. Also like the easy start of this one.

bought it nov 2012, used it small residential yard and went to use it again nov 2013 and would not start. Had it checked out and was advised it needs a new engine. Aside from not working more than 1 season there is no handle to hold machine when starting up.
This is an excellent blower. It works great and does a great job. I recommend this blower to anyone that needs a blower. I put the gas in it and on the 3rd pull it started up and ran perfect.
The leaf blower is very easy to put together which is always a plus, its lite weight and since it goes on the back does not feel heavier then carrying around a child around the age of 1. I have a huge hard and it makes it quicker because the vibration is not too bad
I purchased this item on Black Friday November 25th, 2011. I live in Northern Illinois so my plan was to start using this item the following spring 2012. I assembled the backpack blower in April of 2012 and started using it right away as I had to clean up my yard from winter debris and leaves that had been missed. I have always used the pre-mixed 40:1 fuel that is sold in a can. It worked decent right away. I proceeded to use the backpack blower on my 0.25 acre lot, sidewalk, and driveway throughout the summer of 2012. So roughly 12 times. I noticed each time that is slowly got weaker and weaker each time until finally in September of 2012 it wouldn't start. This was the beginning of the leave cleanup season and I had to take this blower in to Sears. Three weeks later I got it back and they stated they had to install a new "short block" in it. This worked for about 2 uses altogether. Less than a month later, in October of 2012, I brought this back to be repaired again. By this time I resorted to raking leaves by hand, as this thing could not be relied on. The item was out for 2 weeks this time and I was advised that the cost to repair it was higher than just replacing it. They agreed to an exchange. Sears would not honor my original Black Friday price upon exchange. They attempted to force me to pay the difference. I decided to wait until Black Friday 2012 to get my free replacement. I then had to drive 40 minutes to another Sears in Rockford, IL. I exchanged for the new blower on November 23rd, 2012, luckily for the same price I paid one year ago. In April of 2013 I assembled the blower and put the pre-mix 40:1 fuel in out of the can. Throughout this summer I have used this item roughly 14 times on my 0.25 acre lot, sidewalk, and driveway. Once again I noticed that the blower started to lose power eventually to the point where it wouldn't start on August 26th, 2012. It was sent out for repair and came back stating that it was cheaper to replace than to repair. At this point I was done with this piece of junk and wanted a full refund. Sears would NOT honor a refund as they track the original date of purchase all the way back to the beginning. So for me, it would be Black Friday 2011. My only choice was to receive my third exhcanged backpack blower in three weeks. I hope this one lasts, but we all can probably predict the outcome. This thing is not "Professional" in any way, shape, or form. The only good part about it being labeled that is that you have a 3 year warranty. Meaning, get ready to exchange or repair this thing many times. Overall I would never advised even my worst enemy to buy this product. There is proof through the 2 repairs and 3 replacements that this is junk.
