Reliable
It has been very reliable for the 4 years I've owned it. The only problem was the return line for the primer bulb leaked because it apparently degraded and shrunk and pulled out of the fuel tank. I fixed it easily enough with a few inches of replacement "Tygon" 3mm x 5mm fuel line. Construction is rugged and it is a solid performer, starts easily, and is light and compact enough to go where needed.

Great Blower
I purchased this blower in 2011. I have over two acres and blow my leaves 4-5 times a year, Clear driveway after mowing and do the deck and the roof and gutters several times a month when needed. It always starts and idles well. In 2017 it finally died. I purchased a new model in June and it came quickly. The box said 7 year warranty so I checked out when I ordered it in 2011. It is very difficult to find a warranty center in Wisconsin so I sent the 6 year old blower back to the warranty center and THEY FIXED IT AND SENT IT BACK. What a warranty. I will never buy any other brand and recommend this blower to everybody. A great product that is also easy to use.

Great blower for homeowners
Great value for any homeowner. Highly competitive price, easy to use and powerful enough for any job. Not as powerful as a backpack blower, but much easier to use. I have a two acre, heavily wooded lot, so I need a powerful blower that is easy to use. I've tried battery operated blowers, but none have the battery life or power to meet my needs.

No auto-return stop switch!
I just received my Refurbished Blower and it does not have the "auto-return stop switch, which automatically resets to the ON position for easier starting". It is just a plain old off/on switch which stays in the position you move it to. The description states that it does have this feature. Also on every other website I check. I wonder what else is different, I guess time will tell.

Great hard working blower.
6 years ago got my first one for my cabin in the hills. It has never missed a beat, blows wet leafs,and clears the roof
When I needed one for home it was a no brainer....past experience under heavy usage at the cabin made it a clear choice.

I have 2 now!
This is a great blower. Always starts even in the cold winter of Montana. I use it all year around. Great for blowing
light snow off in the winter.I also use it to sweep the garage. I would recommend this blower to anyone.

Blew me away
I usually go for the backpack models but was intrigued by the features and reviews of this model. Exceeded expectations.....this thing packs a punch!! Quick start, light weight and easy to operate. The tapered tube design facilitates that impressive high speed air movement....... my fall leaves were no match for this blower. Highly recommend.

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?

  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
