Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very disappointing, power level is subpar Starts with ease! But that's where the positive ends.... Replaced an earlier awesome Stihl handheld blower but have had problems with this machine from the beginning. Within the first month had to take it back to the dealer who reported that a faulty carburetor need replacing. Still no good. Takes considerable time to warm up.per a previous review, would love to trade it in.... for a better model or maybe make.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Major Disappointment I purchased this unit in 2014 because I am 60 years old and this was the easiest of your gas blowers for me to start. I would use the product just to clean a driveway and porch. Not anything major here.I am very careful about the gas mixture as the vender stressed the importance of the correct gas and oil and amount of time it should be left in the blower and can. After less than one year the machine would randomly stop. We have owned many of your other products from your commercial blowers to your heavy duty blowers and have never had a problems. (In states with a lot more leaves to blow) The blower just did the DIE and I expected more out of your company and this product. Now I need to find something reliable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff - much improved This is an improved version of the previous model which I used and abused for many years. I think the ergonomics are better but the big deal is it's easy to start and runs strong without a lot of warm up. Also the fuel cap is a huge improvement. Overall I'm very pleased.
