    Great specs but not reliable!, September 7, 2008

    I bought this blower because it had the best specifications for blowers available in this price range. Air volume and air speed are 2 different things and both are important for good performance. I quickly learned that this blower achieves the rated 200MPH air speed only with the reducing nozzle attached.(look at the pictures closely). The nozzle makes the airstream rather small, which makes for slow going. It actually works better with the reducer removed. Overall, performance is pretty good for the money but reliability is another story. My unit was hard to start from day one. Once warmed up it would restart fairly easily until it got TOO warm, then it wouldn’t start at all! Not very convenient if you make your living cutting grass and doing yard clean ups as I do. (I used this small blower just to clean off driveways after cutting)I had to carry my big backpack blower around as a backup for when the Poulan wouldn’t start.
    The last straw for me was when the pull cord broke…and that was after only 3 months of use!
    To sum up let me just say “you get what you pay for”. Spend just a little more and get a blower that will be reliable. Ive had good luck with both Echo and Tanaka products and will stay with these brands in the future.

    I went through two of these within 6 months and I only pick up leaves and grass. Carb went bad with both. Waiting to buy Echo es 255 when it comes out in March which will have the 5 year gurantee.
    I did like this product when it worked.

    Lots of power to pile up the leaves but mulching with this is slow going. The impeller is soft plastic so when using the vacuum attachment you will need to avoid twigs and rocks that quickly grind down, crack, and chip away the blades. Switching between the blower and vacuum is not difficult but you will need a screwdriver. Although there’s no cruise control, the unit is fairly light so long periods of triggering not really a problem. Also, the noise was low enough that I could use this while wearing headphones listening to music. Overall, nice power for moving leaves, but definitely not a dedicated mulcher.
