Craftsman 25cc gas blower is the BEST

This Craftsman blower is the best!  It is very Powerful and moves stuff with a pull of the trigger!  I have never had any problems starting this craftsman blower.  I thought I would only use it a few times a year but I was wrong I use it everytime I do yardwork.  Its great for the grass clipping on the sidewalk.  I love it so much I would (If I could) dust my inside with it.  NO CONS from me!

Craftsman Gas Blower

Purchased the blower 7179477 Feb. 18 2012. Today is June 23 2012 and the re-coil is broken. I used the blower maybe 20-25 times during this time. I also purchased the extended warranty because the salesman told me that no matter what happened to the unit I could bring it in and get a replacement free of charge. When I took the blower back they told me that they have to send it out to the repair center and if it's not cost efficient they will replace it, if not it will be repaired in a couple weeks. I have purchased numerous Sears/Craftsman products, but after the service I received tonight I will never walk into a Sears store again.

NOT THAT FORCEFUL

I bought same model previously a few years ago. Previous purchase seemed to have greater velocity and two speeds also.
Be sure gas/oil mixture is just right or you will have a very difficult time starting.

Excellent product

|

I bought this for my husband who for some odd reason loves to blow the leaves and debris from our yard daily. He had an electric blower but was not happy with having to drag the cord around. This was easy to assemble and he has only remarked positively about it's performance. Great price for the product!

Reliable and useable

|

I have owned three electric blowers over the years, all worked well but broke under regular conditions. I always considered a gas blower but was reluctant. I am now convinced purchasing this blower was the absolute correct decision. I use if far more often since I don't have to mess with an extension cord. It starts consistently, isn't too heavy, functions as a vacuum too and is very powerful. I will never go back to electric.

Caution , do not buy

|

Service center did not honor warranty , because it had a different compatible sparkplug, so I got 3 months of use and now its useless because they will not honor the warranty even though it had nothing to do with the sparkplug, do not buy

Don't waste your money

|

Quit after 10 months of light use. Sears repair center said the scored cylinder was a maintenance issue and wasn't covered under the "full 2 year warranty", and wanted $100 to repair it. Never used any gas except the expensive premixed gas bought at Sears. Cleaned the air filter every time I used it instead of the required every 5 hours. Not worth 50 cents. I have a 25 year old Mantis tiller, an 18 year old Weed Eater, and a 12 year old ********** weedcutter that all still work fine. The Craftsman name no longer means what it once did. Will never buy anything else with Sears, or Craftsman on it

If you Enjoy a workout, try to get this thing started

|

I have to say, I am very frustrated with this leaf blower.
In summertime, it seems to be able to start, but when winter comes, it's either the colder weather or the humidity, but this leaf blower simply will not start when all the procedures have been performed. But that's the difficulty in diagnosing, cause I've had it NOT start in summertime as well.
It seems to have a mind of it's own.
Being very familiar with 2 and 4 stroke engines, I have done everything to troubleshoot this thing and get it to start. Making fuel is mixed exactly to spec, proper cleaning and maintenance of the air filter, making sure the tank is devoid of any kind of dust or debris to clog the fuel filter, checking the fuel filter, checking the plug (When it's ran, the plug is powdery brown, right where you want it, when it won't start, it's moist, and clearly it's getting fuel, I've done everything possible. In short: If it won't start within 5 pulls, give it up, you will be there all day, doing everything you can to start it.
I've attempted it so many times I get blisters on my fingers from the pull starter, from continues attempts. Now, I wear gloves when I attempt it, knowing I'm in for a fight.
After reading many of the same complaints I'm very convinced this is some kind of defect in this product. It's incredibly frustrating when you have a cleanup job, or maintenance, that is just perfect for something like this, and low and behold, it won't start.
I'm very done with this product and am requesting a refund from Sears, this is unacceptable in today's manufacturing and technology to have a product like this that is unusable when you need it.

great blower

|

This is my third blower (same model). All are powerful and work very well for a hand-held unit. I put one in each hand for leaves and create a vortex of leaves blowing where I want to send them...

Great buy

|

We purchased this blower/vac at the end of raking season. We have lots of big trees and the leaves take forever to rake. My yard has never looked so good. This device is lightweight, easy to use and was well priced.

Soso blower.

|

Once you got this blower started it seems to work pretty good. the problem is getting it started. One time you use it ,it will start in a reasonable amount of time. Then when you go to use it again it just doesn't want to fire up. Once you do get it started I'd say it works about average to just above average. Maybe it's just the one I got that's hard to start, I don't know. In any case if you do buy one maybe you'll have better luck with yours than I've had. Good luck.

Easy start and powerful blower.

|

This blower is very powerful. It will move gravel and mulch, so be careful where you point it. Heavy vibration, but that is normal for a 2 cycle engine. My only complaint is thar the blower does not feel balanced in your hands. You will have to manhandle it a bit. .

Great blower, vac good use some adjustments

Great leaf blower. The vac function works well, but the bag is difficult to empty. Got Toro hose attachment and use Toro bag and now like using the unit.

good blower, nice power

|

my previous gas blower went out after around 10 years of use. i purchased a 40v battery operated one (trying to be environmentally conscious), but didn't like it's power. i purchased this blower because my previous gas blower was a craftsman. so far so good - here's to hopefully another 10 years.

Waste of Time and Money

|

I purchased this machine the first week of October after my back pack blower went down. The idea was that this machine would get me through to the end of this season and then serve as a solid 2nd piece for one of my sons to use and give me a hand next year and the years to come. Fail.

The machine had a 30 day return policy.

Here I am 40 days after the date of purchase looking to do a quick clean up while everything is dry and easy to move and manage before the rain tonight and the thing won't start. Good fuel, good spark, used MAYBE 6 dates in the last 40 days and the machine won't start. Shame on me, I guess. I should have returned it 2 or 3 weeks ago when it was difficult to restart on a warm engine (literally took me 10 minutes one time).

I used to swear by Craftsman machines and my shed/garage has traditionally been exclusively Craftsman over the past 25 years... Lawn tractor, push mower, trimmer, edger, tiller, mini-tiller, chipper/shredder, etc... and at that, as a machine eventually needed to be replaced as it was more cost effective than repair, it was replaced with another Craftsman. Unfortunately, after a lawn tractor replacement purchase last year and now this, I have noticed a big drop off in Craftsman quality.

This blower will ultimately be the last piece of Craftsman equipment that I will have wasted my money on.

No. The 2 years that come with the blower is a limited manufacturer warranty. The 3 year protection agreement starts from the date of purchase and covers far more than the manufacturer's warranty. Example - ethanol damage is not covered by manufacturer's warranty but is covered by the 3 year repair protection plan.

Did the cashier scan that coupon? If there are no exclusions, you usually see points being awarded to your account immediately. You can check your receipt/account if you have received any bonus points. If not I'd say wait 1-2 days and if still nothing, then shoot an email to cs with the whole story including coupon & item description.
