Excellent value and works well
I used this blower to clear leaves from a crushed stone drive about 800 feet long and was impresed at how well it removed wet leaves and did not disturb the stones.

Great quality for the price
Great power at a reasonable price. Air intake is on pants leg side for a right handed operator but don't let that stop you from buying this one. Don't buy a cheaper blower and don't forget to add a little gas stabilizer if you are using it infrequently or storing it for the winter. I'm a first time customer of Tyler Tool and like to buy local but I was very satisfied with the great customer service and quick delivery. I will use them again.

Works great
I've used this blower twice since I got it and couldn't be happier. It used to take me several hours to rake the leaves in my yard, with this blower it took me less than 30 minutes. It starts up easy everytime, and it has plenty of power. It's also not very heavy, so my arm doesn't get tired.

The Best
I've been purchasing blowers for 25+ years, and have had both gas and electric. This little Hitachi is THE BEST blower I've ever owned. After more than a year of steady use, it's still powerful and reliable.

Great blower.
This Hitachi blower is great. I was looking for an inexpensive blower to use on the sidewalk and driveway and this one fit the bill perfectly. I have several pine trees in my yard and a very large oak tree beside my house. The pine trees are always dropping needles and I get tired sweeping them off the sidewalk and raking off the driveway. With this blower I'm through in just a few minuites. I have even used it to blow the needles and acorns of the windshield of my truck (where they like to collect). I also have used it to blow leaves around in the yard and this blower does that with ease, wet or dry.
I'm very happy with my purchase and CPO had the lowest price I could find. My only wish is that I had purchased it sooner.

Have two of these and love them but there is an issue appear
I have two of these, one for the deck and one for the garage and yard. Both work like a charm, best blowers I have ever owned. Just recently however I note when I push the primer before starting gas oozes out the gasket at top of gas tank. Then the other day I could no longer start it. Looking online there is a gas system issue listed and you need to check fuel line hoses and possibly buy replacement parts. Could be that darn "forced upon us" ethonol.

Good machine . . . once it's running.
I use it primarily for blowing leaves and for blowing off the roof/gutters.

It starts fairly easy and it's powerful.

When it arrived, I was unable to get it started. The instructions regarding the on/off switch were misleading and I didn't know what the problem was. It was a Saturday and Hitachi was not available for consultation. I tried many times to get it started over the course of the weekend. On Monday, speaking with a Hitachi technician, it became obvious that one gas line was not connected. It was not possible to see that line until I had conversation with the technician. Although I was able to repair it myself, with the help of the technician, it was not a very easy task.

The off/on switch is really only used to turn the machine off. That's not clear in the instructions. Because the switch is shrouded in plastic, and I did not know that the starting problem was a gas line that had not been connected, I thought the off/on switch was perhaps stuck in an off position and I couldn't solve the non-starting problem.

Today, I printed the $30.00 rebate certificate and discovered that I needed to cut out the UPC barcode. I had already put the box into the recycle bin that had been picked up last weekend. I'm waiting for a call back from a redemption center supervisor but, the person I spoke with basically told me that I was SOL. If that is the case, I plan to send this back to CPO and start over to get the rebate.

No service centers within 200 miles. Quarterly maintenance requires service by only authorized service center. How do I do that with none available. Warranty is essentially useless.

Really upset, I got the RB 24EAP and it does NOT have the auto return on/off switch. If you forget you will flood the engine real easy. Also miss the throttle lock that most others have. Does yours have the return switch?

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
