    If it gets any better after it breaks in i'll have to go and get another. I blew leaves around in the yard for an hour Sat. when i got home with it. Simply amazing.

    Its hard to tell someone who doesn't have one of these blowers just what a difference they make. The blower is probably the weak link in a lot of lco's operations. A crappy string trimmer wont slow you down nearly as much as a crappy blower. I was amazed with mine right out of the box. Cant wait for it to break in.

    Here in Phoenix we dont have much in the way of leaf clean up but you still need a blower for the routine debris clean up and rock landscape cleaning. Would one of these be overkill in that area? Kinda like using a sledge hammer to drive in a nail for a picture? Or not....Just wondering....Thanks!

    I'm not familar with your area,but this is a major piece of equipment. I'm use to using a sthil bg75 hand held, a decent little blower but nothing compared to the 7001. The 7001 could be overkill for some because of the power,but after using it sat. I could move one leaf or tons.

    Sure did. Do it on all my 2 strokers. Carbon buildup on it can be a pita to take out and wire brush clean in the field...
