    Has anyone bought or demoed one of these tiny bp blowers? They weight 13.2 lbs! 500 cfm, 150 mph. Only $225. Not sure if it's enough power, but I don't move any piles of leaves with my bp, just use it for blowing walks and scattering clumps of grass in spring. I love the idea of the light weight though.

    If you've bought or used one, do you like it?

    I don't know, but that don't sound bad for the power, weight and price...

    IF that is the CFM 'with' the pipes.

    If so, it would almost be on par with the Echo PB620.

    But the 150MPH air speed makes me suspect the CFM is 'without' the pipes.
    If so, there are stronger handheld blowers.

    I got one just last week for long driveways etc. The 48cc unit if thats the one were talking about! Light as and plenty powerfull enough for me. I dont do yards full of leaves etc like some of you guys.
    Only used it a couple of times so early days. Let ya know more in a couple of mths! hehe

    It's the 26 cc blower, very small. My HH Stihl is more powerful, but I think it would be more comfortable using a superlight bp blower when I have like 6 properties in one place.

    With pipes it's 295 cfm.

    We have the Husqvarna 125, which seems to be the very same model.
    Use it every day. Very reliable and powerful enough to easily clean the driveway

    Starts always on the fist pull, whish every engine would be that good!

    Yep, looks like the same blower! I'll pick one up next spring I think.

    UPDATE: Well, I bought one of these blowers, but returned it yesterday. It just does not have the power I need to blow off even light edging. The light weight is nice, but it needs at least 50% more power to be useful for me.
