Blower pipe and adaptors difficult to remove due to dirt in joints, but then everything can't always be easy. All else about blower is superb. Shopped for a while online until this model showed up. Metal impeller has to be a major plus, based on other reviews I read. The suction pipe has NEVER clogged. I am sucking up liquid amber leaves and the seed balls too. The balls make a few laps around the impeller, but they eventually get small enough and get sent to the "bin". I recommend getting the "leaf collection system". Highly over priced, but it makes everything too easy. The locking device on the adaptor for the hose to the trash can doesn't lock. The lugs are poorly designed or manufactured (one of those). I have duct taped the adaptor in place. The plastic is too brittle in the cold. The locking tabs for the blower pipe broke the first time I disassembled it. There are anchor tabs for the extension cord on the blower and the adaptor for the leaf collection system that work perfectly. The only time my cord came undone was when the hose fell off the adaptor. After the addition of the duct tap...smooth sailing. I experienced a reduction of about 4 to 1 over STUFFING the trash can with leaves. I'm sure the 10 to 1 they claim is valid if you are just dumping the leaves into the trash.
This model has a variable speed control for both the blower or yard vac use. I use this about 50 / 50 for leaf blower and mulching vacuum. I decided to get an electric instead of gas - am very happy for the choice. This model has an all metal blade so it will handle small twigs, acorns and leafs. Yes, the vacuum setting is strong enough to pick up small rocks so be careful! Adjustable shoulder strap for the collection bag helps support the machine when using the yard vac - otherwise as a blower it is very easy to use. The yard vac is very useful in areas I do not want to blow over tender plants or kick up dust and grit around cars / windows. The blower is great for clearing off the walkways and driveway as well as gutters on the roof.
wig wag nozzle is great. Motor brushes or ??? just burned up. All I have seen not worth fixing.Nozzel is long/great I m 5ft 10in tall easy on the back.Leaf grinder never used waste of Money.Metal impeller. Great if needed.
I love this blower/mulcher The blower is perfect for the yard and in the workshop. However I did use it as a mulcher recently and the motor burned up. It' was handling things pretty nicely, but I think the tremendous amount of gum balls just did it in. I still like the machine and would recommend it to others. As for simply picking up leaves it was fantastic. As a blower it is superb.
