For professionals, time means money. And whether that means time spent on a job, or servicing your equipment – the less time spent thinking about your tools, the better. Our fuel-efficient, low-emission engines and large fuel tanks reduce your need for refuels and save you money on fuel costs. Every blower is also ergonomically designed to reduce vibration and increase operator comfort – and most importantly, provide reliable power, a necessity when you’re using our blowers all day, every day.
Professionals demand quality features in their tools, inside and out. As well they should. Our professional blowers are more than a purchase – they're an investment of both money and time. That's why we make sure every component in our professional-grade blowers live up to that investment. You'll find every single one of these features on your professional handheld or backpack blower. No exceptions.
