  • The Backpacker. Blows the others away.

    May 12, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Powerful air stream. Comfortable.
    Cons: On/Off switch can be hit accidently

    Summary: Leaves, leaves falling down red, yellow golden… All right already enough with the cute little poems. When those leaves are falling down it means one thing, summers over and that winter is on its way. It also means that someone has to remove them from the ... read more

  • Homelite Backpacker Blower....... Great blower for home usage.

    Jul 28, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Gets clean-up done in a snap.
    Cons: Not as powerful as the commercial grade blowers.

    Summary: As I walked into my service department to pick up a lawn mower that needed overhauling I saw the sale sign on this backpack blower. I knew I needed another blower because my customer and employee base is expanding and that Fall is right around the corner ... read more

    Pros: You get what you pay for!!!!!$140/160 forget it.
    Cons: No Power 170mph. Try a real blower at 235 mph about $350/400 range.

    Summary: Pay $cheap get cheap .Put that cheap money towards a real backpack with a range of 190 to 235 mph for a real machine not a Mickey mouse. I should have done my Homework on Homelite.it seems you cannot put your trust in a Name any longer.a CFM of 400and ... read more

  • Best gas blower in its price range

    Feb 14, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Like all gas blowers, portability. Easy and comfortable to carry.
    Cons: Now quite the power of my much less expensive electric Weed-Eater blower

    Summary: I've had my Homelite Backpacker for a few weeks now and have tested it fully. I bought it used at an estate sale for $45.00, it retails for about $180 at my local Home Depot. Even though it had been sitting in a garage at this deceased persons home, it ... read more

  • Not the power expected!

    Apr 15, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: It's rather cheap for a blower.
    Cons: Breaks easily and has no blowing power

    Summary: My boss bought this for cleaning outside the office and I want to make one thing known right now. It is a weak blower and it really made me sick because of fumes coming from the engine and this was a brand new blower. Not only that, but after using ... read more

  • DON'T BUY IT!!!!

    Rated Show
    Pros: Price
    Cons: Reliability, power, construction, frustration

    Summary: Reliability is questionable. Starts easy but the power never was there from the time it was new. Difficult getting it up to full throttle. Just bought a Echo Weedeater and now will buy an Echo Backpack. Pay a little extra and get a LOT ... read more

  • Backpack Blower wouldn't blow out a match!

    Rated Show
    Pros: Started easily
    Cons: No blowing power, cheaply made

    Summary: My ECHO blower of 17 years just gave up and I decided to get a cheap one at Home Depot. After comparing specifications and price I purchased the Homelite Back Blower. When I got home and started to assemble it, I knew I made a mistake buying it when the ... read more

  • Not good enough

    Dec 2, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Starts nicely
    Cons: not enough power, Short Straps, flimsy Throttle.

    Summary: I had expected more from this leaf blower. first off it does start up nice. but for its size is loud. The straps are to short for the average adult and it rides high up on your back. The air tube pieces keep loosening. The throttle control cable needed ... read more

  • Owned two, both were nothing but TROUBLE

    Nov 12, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Great way of throwing money away, but didn't expect a DISPOSABLE product.
    Cons: Unreliable piece of foreign junk

    Summary: They worked good when brand new right out of the box; just long enough that they couldn't be returned to the retailer. Nothing but headaches. Figured the first one having trouble might have been a fluke because of good reviews, but learned not to ... read more

  • Poor quality, both of them broke. Terrible Customer Service

    Oct 27, 2003 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Great concept, did move leaves OK when running.
    Cons: Poor construction, leaky gas tank.

    Summary: My first Backpacker broke - an authorized repair facility said the engine just let go internally. Took two years for Customer Service to send me a replacement. The replacement wouldn't run for more than 60 seconds. Hours upon hours of frustration. An e ... read more
