Absolutely Awesome Blower. Great Power, Started Right Out Of The Box. Tried a Craftsman 32cc 2 Stroke first and it doesnt compare to this blower. I havent tried the mulcher yet but Im very pleased with the blower. Its definitely worth the price.

No, I do not recommend this product.
Had bought 2 gas blowers in last 3 years, both died and were never replaced. Had backup 7 year old electric Toro Power Sweep (GREAT PRODUCT) but got tired of lugging extension cords. Bought Homelite Vac Attack II. Figured it would be a better blower than the Homelite unit at $80. The specs on CFM and MPH are higher. I was not planning to use the vacuum feature but decided to spend the extra $20. First impression based on specs were good, 200+ MPH and 400+ CFM are both great. Bought new gas can and fresh gas (87 octane) and used oil provided in box to make 1 gallon of fuel/oil mix. Blower was used on concrete driveway to blow leaves and pine needles. Worked fine but made a rattling noise and engine surged as I made passes side to side to blow leaves. It even surged when I kept unit still. This is what happened to my last blower after 6 months, before it started blowing oil out of the engine and finally died. Gas fill location make it hard to fill with air tube in the way. Air Tube kept loosening. Had to tighten metal band holding tube several times. Also smoked quite a bit after shutting down from full throttle the first time, probably just new paint burning off muffler. Maybe I got a unit that was bad, may try another one or try the more expensive (but highly rated for engine life) Echo at Home Depot.

Worked good for about 1 1/2 years as a blower and very little vac. work. Started having trouble end of last year then it just would not start. This is the second one in 6 years. I'm switching to electric.

This is a wonderful low cost light weight blower. It has enough power to handle big leaf jobs and grass clippings but does not hurt your back carrying it around.

The handle needs more room, and the engine guard gets a little hot. But very powerful on the blower part, does as good as a backpack blower. Very easy to start, not to heavy. The cruise control is very nice feature. Great product.

It worked good and started easily but after using the vac attachment a few times the impeller got chewed up and wore the bearing out,now it's just flopping around. I've only had it a year. I'm going to try to order the part right now.

Great blower, much better than my previous one. My wife said it seemed heavy to her. The op of the unit gets somewhat hot around the handle area if you are not wearing gloves. Seems like the muffler could have been positioned lower towards the bottom.

So far I have had this blower for almost 6 months, it hasn't given me any problems, a buddy of mine told me to get a Ryobi, I decided to give this Homelite a chance and so far so good, it starts up with no problems, I love the fact that the exhaust goes thru the nozzle, no fumes and little extra umph at the tip!
Give this a try, I also purchase the extra coverage at the register, seems like a win win purchase!
