What a great blower! I am impressed at the velocity that this Craftsman Blower exhales. I think anyone that buys this blower will be impressed by its strength and ease of use. The weight is very manageable my 71 year old Aunt used it with ease. Enjoy the blowing power of this machine.
I bought this gas blower after reading all the great reviews about how wonderful it is. I have to say I am not impressed at all. After assembling it and putting in the oil and gas mixture, I tried to start it. After about 5 pulls it finally started. Per instructions, I let it ideal for about 10 seconds before I started to blow the leaves. I found it to be very noisy and not a powerful blower as you have to really hold it close to the ground in order for the leaves to blow. After two uses it made a noise and will not start up again. I unassembled it and put it back together and even remix the new oil for it but still no luck of getting this blower to start. I have to call customer service to see if they can assist me with this blower. This is the second craftsman blower I have owned and have countless issues with both. I love craftsman product but they are not what they used to be. Very iffier.
a little heavier than would like but good wind force.
Straight out of the box had to adjust carb. To make run . Found it was set for e10 fuel i only run truefuel . Now its a great blower
