    My son is going to start helping us this summer he's turn 11. Going to start him the same way cleaning yards of trash and branches and blowing drives off. What backpack blower do you guys recommend thats light? Been looking at the stihl BR200. Thanks!

    Jason that's good to hear your son will become involved with helping you. Be prepared its not all fun and games working with our kids. We do not have a back pack blower. We use poulan and echo handhelds. If price is a concern poulan has decent back pack blowers available at Kmart. If price is not an issue than Echo Sthil and Husq are the way to go. Do some research and shop around. Good Luck this year and I hope working with your son is as rewarding as working with my kids has been.

    When is this Indiana Winter going to end? Last year it was in the 80's and we were off and running. Today it in the teens.

    Jason it won't be long. The grass here in Indiana took off as soon as the first rains came.
