It's a great blower, but it is all the things I said. Even with hearing protection on it's a bit loud for comfort at WOT. As big and heavy as it is it's actually pretty comfortable due to an excellent harness system. It will wow you with how hard it blows. But you may as well forget about using the curved flat high velocity tip. It's really difficult and tiring to hold the tube with it on.

I'll keep you in mind if it takes off like a fire hose lol. I'm about to go slave at Volkswagen for11 hours now so I'll be looking forward to the comfort of the backpack blower versus the constant bending and lifting of these car parts at a non stop mind blowing rate/speed. Haha

Update!! well i went yesterday to sle equipment in antioch tn and purchased all my equipment, i got "all new" 6x12 3500lb axle trailer with 3 trimmer racks installed, 2013 2000 series toro zmaster 52 inch with the 23 kawasaki engine, kawasaki trimmer, husky 350bt backpack blower. also went ahead and picked up a roll of trimmer string, and a quick switch head for trimmer. And to boot toro was running a special on new machines so i got 300.00 worth of parts free i was the first lucky customer!! so i stocked up on blades , belts, and hydro filter's. oh and the special was for "parts" only and you had to spend it all at one time. If you are ever looking to do good business with some nice people with un beatable prices from my searching then i highly recommend dealing with sle equipment.

Buy local. It's not worth the headache if you don't have that manufacturer's dealer close.
