As soon as I can figure out how to transfer pics from my phone I'll get them on here. I just used it once yesterday and I can tell I'm going to have to adjust to having something that large on my back for extended periods. I injured my back several yrs. ago doing farm work and seems like everything throws it out of wack. I'm glad I went with this relatively lighter unit rather than the ones that were 3 or 4 more pounds.
Are you happy you did not get a redmax?

If he'd gotten the Husky 580 he could have most of the weight on his hips instead of his back!

Not sure I'm recommend it for someone with back problems though in all honesty.

this blower is awesome. I used it today and it made what would usually be a two hr. job a one hour job. I don't have any pic yet cause my digital cameras lens wont work. can't take pics w/out the lens. It is a bit cumbersome, but I guess that's something all I have to get used to, and how to adjust the straps properly. I can't imagine anyone using these to clean gutters, unless it's a flat roof. I did a gutter job today that the kawi would have pulled me off the side had I used it.

Imagine what you could have done if you'd bought a real blower!
