$99 Handheld blower buy, 441 CFM

Hitachi RB24EAP 23.9cc 2-STROKE handheld blower (manufactured by Tanaka)

On sale right now for $119 at Menards, if you have one near-by. $20 mail-in rebate, rebate limit of two blowers. Bringing total to $99. Most of those disposable brands cost more than this!

I bought two, figured I'd take my chance with them. They come with the same Tanaka warranty, 7 year residential, 2 year commercial. 23.9cc, 441 CFM, 8.6-pounds.

And Michigan...they just have so much MORE than HD or lowes, though! It's absolutely amazing what all they have.

I ought to buy more....

These blowers are pretty nice...and powerful too. No throttle lock, but I can easily overlook that fault. Nice and light to use when I don't need the power of our BR600s.
