I was liking mine today when it came time to blow clippings off wet pavement. Actually I used it quite a bit...seems like a lot of leaves down already for this time of year. Probably because it's been kind of rainy/stormy. Usually it's just nuisance leaves but I'm darn near in cleanup mode already.
Did you like how she fired up in 2 pulls cold? I can get the newer of my EB630s in one pull if I'm quick on the choke, but I don't think you can ask much more than 2 pulls. I will say that the 770 I demo'd fired in 2 pulls as well and they said it was cold.
