In the market for a leaf blower?
This leaf blower weighs just 8.6 pounds, has a purge primer for quick and easy starts, a low emission PureFire engine and a large two finger throttle for easier operation.
On the fence? Over 2,500 reviews give this leaf blower a 4.3 out of 5 star rating!
Lightweight, a little loud, but really throws a huge volume of air! It’s much better performance than the leaf vac/blower combo I replaced.
I’ve had it all summer long and have used it 20 to 30 times. It’s lightweight, well balanced and feels great in your hand. Of course there are other more heavy duty commercial grade blowers but for the average household this is the one.
The Hitachi is cheaper looking than the Husqvarna but has just as much power and guess what? I’m two years in and have not had one problem! I will say that it doesn’t ‘look as nice’ as the others. The plastic appears cheaper, the blower tube doesn’t extend out as far and there is no mechanism to lock the blower on at working speeds so you must continually hold in the trigger. But it starts easily every time, has plenty of power, works without issues on ethanol gas and just keeps on running.
Dude, this thing rocks. The air impact is very strong. I have a large wooded property with tons of mature trees. I also rock a long lawn, so leaves tend to get embedded in the lawn. This thing has the impact to get the leaves out of the grass with ease. Wet leaves? Not a problem. Almost preferable because wet leaves don’t drift away in the wind. Piece of cake to start. Fuel mixture is 25:1 – 50:1. So, if you don’t get the mix perfect, the unit doesn’t really care. If you have an old blower that you are replacing, save the shoulder strap! This does not come with one and they help with the weight A LOT.
