A neighbor's blower was the basis for this purchase. After borrowing it to clean my driveway, I had to buy my own. The four-cycle engine is powerful and clean. The blower power was more than sufficient to begin moving piles of leaves easily. Worth every cent.....this is what Craftsman means to us.
This blower sounds like a thrashing machine after just two seasons. The engine sounds as if it is about to throw the rod. Do NOT buy this product. I have bought Sears lawn and garden equipment exclusively for 50 years and the equipment purchased in the past three years is junk. Lawnmower has broken three times in two years, leaf blowers have failed three times in two years. This latest equipment is just junk. I won't buy any Sears lawn and garden equipment ever again.
Excellent machine. I purchased the same machine 10 years ago and it served me well so I bought an identical one.
Kill only switch is a great idea.
This is complete junk. I’ve exchanged it 5 times and they have ALL spewed out oil after an hour of use. That’s 5 different units and all have had the same problem. The store at Florida Mall has the rudest Managers unqualified to be Managers. Not even 1 apology for the mess in my car, in my garage, and clothes from this crappy product. I get it’s the manufacturers fault, but be more courteous Sears employees!
