    Great blower! Its a great step up from a hand-held blower. perfect for blowing grass clippings off of side-walks.

    the sthil 420 magnum is a far better blower . i had a 413 and gave it away cause it was too weak. even just for grass clippings. the sthil was state of the art till just a few years ago when the big redmax,s came out

    We are still buying the Stihl 420 over the Echo.....I like the tight packaging on Stihl better than Echo.

    The 413 works alright for me... it can blow grass clippings right across my driveway and it wil blow the mulch right out of the flower beds. If you are using it just for mowing and medium sized leaf jobs it will work fine. Its much better than a handheld.
