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!
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
After a little over 2 years of occasional use one of the bolts on the head broke messing up the cylinder head & the fan blade. This indicates the head bolt is not rated for the vibration that occurs. Funny 2 year warranty 2 years of use.
This leaf blower is the 2nd one I have owned. The first one would not start after 3 months light use. Sears replaced it and the one I have now works fine. It is very strong and not too heavy which is a plus.
Great item. Works great. Starts easy, runs great, easy to use, light weight. I really enjoy using this product.
Best of all, I caught it ON SALE! I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THIS PRODUCT!
Purchasing to replace a Sears shredder vac that was happy with, but wanted upgrade. Purchased this model that was being phased out because liked the specs and features. Took this unit home and found that the gas tank leaked when tilted as you need to do when using as vac. Returned for refund.
We purchased this blower/sweeper for our rock gardens but it sweeps the stones into the motor so not so sure about it. Maybe they are all that strong. We need to experiment with it to tweak it & hoping it does the job we are wanting.
My husband was beginning to lament the encroaching fall weather phenomena of falling leaves. He hates leaves on the patio, driveway, sidewalks, etc. I decided this was the year he would be getting a leaf blower for his birthday rather than a new broom lol. When he opened the gift it was like I gave him a million dollars! He ran right out and started using it. It started up with no problems and he blew all the dirt and grass clippings off previously mentioned surfaces in no time flat. He is thrilled with it.
This is something my husband has been wanting a long time. I saw the special price and with shop my way rewards and promotional codes and ************* to my door I just couldnt resist. Great item very useful to clean up your yard,
Wouldn't buy it again. Junk. It died after two seasons and I maintain my products to factory standards. Very well taken care of.
