    I'd recommend a Stihl. I have a BG55 and I really like it. It was only $140. Well worth the money spent. It just keeps running and running. good luck

    I had two BG55's. Loved their power, for a handheld they did great for
    what those types of blowes do.
    May whomever stole them, be ran over by a train.....LOL
