Last Sat I was finishing up a lawn and went to get the blower and blow off the hard surfaces. I know I will get some flax for this but it was a handheld blower from lowes. My in-laws bought it for me as a b-day gift 4 yrs ago when I started by business. Never had any problems with it until Sat. It starts up and run a little sluggish think maybe some air or water in fuel let it run and start to blow everything off. Well it decides to shut off. Try for 20 min to start won't start. Have three more to service. Finally get mad finish loading up and throw the blower in the back of the truck and head to home depot 1 mile away. My dealer is closed on Sat. I picked up a homelite bp blower for 150. This fall I am getting a sthil bp blower. Haven't decided which one yet. Anyone else buy from home depot or lowes in a pinch?
