    I just got a craftsman blower hand held.Thought it was a good deal it blows 205MPH and has 410cfm could not find one in a more comercial brand with that kind of power.Question is this a good blower?

    Maybe for blwoing off your patio once a week, but not for commercial use.

    Is this a joke? You could not find a commercial brand with that kind of power? What do you call commercial? You can get a straw and blow air thru it at 205 mph, that does not make it the most powerful! Check out the RedMax or Shindiawa blowers, they will blow your Craftsman blower across the ground!

    RedMax EB7000 = 205mph & 750 CFM: http://www.redmax.com/products/blowers/blowers_detail.asp?prodnumber=EB7000

    Shindiawa EB630 = 201 mph 613 CFM: http://www.shindaiwa.com/products/blowers/eb630.html

    I agree with Kirby. Try Redmax, Shindaiwa, or Stihl. I've got a Stihl BR 320 that is great. That Crapsman wouldn't stand a chance against any commercial blower.
