Man, I'm telling you, you have got to change the color and size of the font. Older eyes like mine have trouble with that.

To me if it's hard to start it's not a machine I want. My Shindaiwa equipment have always been 1 to 2 pull machines, even after sitting over the winter and being 10+ years old...start right up and ready to work right away. My newest purchases have been Husqvarna and they don't start quite as easily as my Shindaiwa stuff but still they start quickly and are ready to work with minimal warmup. I do agree that a handheld blower is good for working in confined spaces like shrubs against a house. You can scorch vinyl siding trying to use a backpack blower in areas like that....hmmm...what's that smell...ooops. I usually just use my backpack anyway though. I just take a tube off.

I think you are going to find this review tactic to backfire.

Time to get those old eye's checked again maybe?

If it brings traffic to his webpage, and drives his hit count stats up, whats to backfire.

It's not much better veiled than google search links to items I have for sale and it's still spam... He could have wrote the review here, instead he went about it in such a way that anyone wanting to read it has to visit his web site and if I'm not allowed to post a link to an item I have for sale why should anyone else be allowed to post back door links to their commercial interests?

What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

Champ don't apologize. You took the time to use a product and write a review. That is the kind of thing that I come here for. If I have to go to your site so be it.

I find this a much better use of this forum than those who bash and belittle at every opportunity.

Thanks Sharkey, I'm glad that it's semi-helpful to someone...not trying to put out spam :)
