Since I have this exact unit at our home in Florida, deciding which blower to choose from Amazon was easy. Purchasing it for $15 less than what I paid for it from Amazon.com a year ago (and in CAD $) was a no brainer. Free 2 day delivery in Canada topped it off and I knew that I had a great deal here!. The unit must have been on a super sale since I paid $124.51 on November 14, 2014. It's now $169.00. Ouch!
This unit was shipped well packed and it's light as you're likely to get in a unit of this size and power. It assembles easily but you'll need to spray a bit of WD40 or similar lubricant on the black nozzles to get them to mate as they are really tight. Once together and fitted onto the motor, they're gonna stay put. Other than that, all you need is a gas/oil mix and you're ready to fire it up.
With a full tank, I set the choke, pressed the gas primer about 8 or 9 times and pulled the cord. It started on the 3rd try and that was it. Easy! The unit runs smoothly and the noise level is about the same as my electric blower but at different frequencies. Take my advice..........Read more ›
I start every time without even pumping the fuel with the bubble. One pull with choke "down", one in the middle and one more at the high position and it starts flawlessly every time. There is no fuel in the bubble at all. More quiet than the electric one I still have. Well balance and very strong blast of air. I don't even need to use it at full throttle. Switch hand sometimes if you want to use it over long period.
The color looks very good too.
Cons: Let's get this out of the way first, because there is only one, and it shouldn't detract anyone at all from purchasing this piece of equipment. It's minor. The assembly of the black tube and nozzle is the only thing you need to put together. And it was frustrating! The tolerances are super tight. If you're off by even a millimeter the tube won't fit. And its hard to twist into place because the material is slippery. But once it's locked in place...
Pros: I have a neighbour whom has a 4 stroke leaf blower. But he watched me walk down my driveway, casually carrying my 2 stroke blower, and blowing .5 cm of snow easily without me even touching the throttle - the idle speed way way powerful enough. He came over and said 'Lemme try it out', I gave him the blower, he hit the throttle full power, and snow got blown over 7 feet away. He exclaimed 'This thing is more powerful than mine! I thought I had the best one!!' I had to fight to get it back from him...
Other reviews have said that the intake can suck onto your pant leg if you are right handed. Yes, it's true. No, it's not a problem. When I first hefted it without thinking I was holding it well away from my pant leg. I can see how it could happen though - if you were very fatigued and had to rest the machine against your leg. But this thing only weighs 8 lbs, which is really darn light. When the package first came, my wife received it at the door. She lifted the box and thought it was pretty light. She was surprised when I told her over the phone it was the leaf blower.
Other reviews have said the tube is not long enough.Read more ›
