Have had numerous Craftsman Trimmers and Blowers over the years. Most seem to last 3 to 5 years!! This will be my last Sears purchase ever! Blower began to vibrate heavily, became noisy and eventually failed. The impeller became loose due to an off-center drilled hole on the impeller. Made in Mexico for Sears by another mfr to reduce costs resulting in mfg defects and low quality. It is no wonder that an icon store is well on its way to bankruptcy and being out of business!! I bid adieu to Sears forever!!
