Well LOOKS are one thing PERFORMANCE and RELIABILITY are another. Does it really matter what a blower looks like? Maybe for some I guess. I want the thing to start on the 1st or sencond pull, have enough power for jobs that require a BP. If it doesn't have enough power (leaves too thick, wet, etc) That's when you break out the push blower or you actually have too many leaves to move.
