1) Easy to start. Right out of the box this bad boy quickly started. I recommend using non-ethanol gas which will prevent the carburetor from getting gummed up. Once you are shutting down for a long period of time run the machine dry by getting out all of the gas.
2) Adjustable speeds with the ability to lock in on the highest speed. This allows you to gently ease the leaves onto the tarp and also cut loose on the highest speed when you first start out.
3) Very comfortable with the padded back straps! It's a big machine which you'd need to tackle the amount of leaves that we have. The backpack style accommodates this large machine well.
4) Large and easy to fill gas tank. I have not had to stop working to re-fill which makes the job much easier.
Leaf blowing will no longer be on the "hmmmm...let's procrastinate list. Thanks Echo! And honestly, Tom's been having a really good time leaf blowing. It's a mindless chore, but since he's still technically working he can't be nagged about doing something else. So it's kind of like really cheap therapy that relieves his stress. Kind of like having a cat.
