Pros: Great ergonomics, reliability, and quality
Cons: A little loud and slightly underpowered for some jobs.
Bought at Home Depot for light commercial use ($299) after two hand-held blowers both failed quickly--a Homelight and a Sears Craftsman. This blower starts quickly and easily, is comfortable to operate, and has a large fuel tank so it runs a long time. Items like an NGK spark plug, an automobile-like air cleaner, and a catalytic converter prove this blower is quite well-built and durable. It meets EPA Phase 2 and CARB emissions--for the longest period of 300 hours. Although not as quiet, smooth, and efficient as my 4-stroke Honda trimmer, this is the best piece of small power equipment I have owned.
