    Does anyone know what manufacturer makes Lesco's model LHB 2500 hand held Blower? Would anyone recommend it? It will mostly be used for blowing fertilizer off walks and driveways.

    No, I would not recommend that blower. Parts availability could be an issue.

    Buy a Redmax or even an Echo hand held blower from a good quality commercial dealer. You won't go wrong with either one.

    I dont think parts availability will be an issue, lesco can take care of you just like the echo or redmax dealer can. I think that you'll do just fine with that blower. Im a shindaiwa fan myself but I have handled the lesco unit and its not bad.

    I think that varies from Lesco to Lesco. My Lesco dealers does not stock any parts and has no shop. They have a small warehouse where their primary sales are chemicals and fertilizer. I bought a leaf vac from them a couple years ago. I asked what if something broke on it, who would work on it? They said that they would have to send it out to get fixed. I still ended up buying the unit from them, but only because I was getting $700 off the list price (they had it laying around and was only in their way) and I figured by the time it broke down that the warranty would already be expired. I would not recommend buying anything with much mechanics involved from MY lesco dealer. On the other hand, if they have an in-house shop, you might be ok. I have no idea about that blower, but I am happy with my Redmax 7001!

    Uh, No they can't. Lesco is not known for parts availability around here. Who knows who made the blower as well. Lesco sure didn't.

    Stick with a name brand like Redmax or Echo.

    You will not find the same service support with Lesco as you will with others such as Redmax, Echo, or Stihl.

    I am getting the impression that all lesco dealers arent the same. Mine has a shop in it and they can fix anything that you bring in there. So i guess it what it boils down to is the dealer. Sorry about that.

    The Lesco in my area has a shop too, but I have never seen anyone in there working. The main problem is, they don't stock the same vast array of parts that a commercial equipment dealer may. This can mean more down time for your equipment, if the part needed is not in stock.

    Yeah I guess that this thread proves the importance of dealer support. To each his own, and I guess lescos and any other dealer for that matter differ everywhere.

    If you are confident the Lesco in your area will provide you with the equipment and service you desire, then don't hesitate to buy there.
