Kawasaki KRB750 bp blower intro and review

I purchased a Kawasaki KRB750 backpack blower from WiseSales Friday and it got here on Saturday. Thanks for the input from everyone who bought from them and obviously I'm very pleased receiving the blower the next day. I plan to do a thorough review with pics as I use it more (the only only thing I've done so far is blow out my garage and some compost pile in my garden) as I haven't seen much at all said or reviewed about it on lawnsite. I'm already "blown away" by the power, but I have to say it won't take to much to impress me as I've only ever used handhelds until now. I'll keep you updated on what I think.

Keep in mind that it will get a little more powerful after it breaks in. Sometimes the throttle response is a little poor at first too. Kawi has been making backpack blowers for a long time...the first BP blower I ever ran was a Kawi back in the mid 80s.

You will really like the blower. I have the smaller one (650) and it has alot of power, and is really comfortable. did you get the tube mount or the hip mount?



CONGRATS ON THE NEW BLOWER

I'm going to have to buy new handhelds all the way across the board. I've never had any handhelds gain 50% more power after I started using them. Looks like I need to head to the nearest Kawi dealer and buy all new equipment. Thanks for the heads up.

i think i over exaggerated that. they get a little bit more power once they are broken in.
