    Was wondering the differences between these two models?

    Can save some $ if I take leftover new in box BL3100.
    Dealer has to order in so dont really know difference. Did notice on website BL32 is now newest model.
    Any reviews, insight or opinions on this Make and Model appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Before posting did extensive searching on this site concerning the Maruyama Hand Held Blowers. Wasn't very many posts exactly comparing the two HH models, so am not surprised ...no feedback yet.

    I do know the BL3100 has 30.2cc with very little EPA restrictions. The BL3200 was modified to meet all new EPA restrictions with recoil easy start and now the BL32 has same motor, just a different machining factor.

    Really like the specs and warranty on all 3 models but the dealers close to me have none in stock....hence I found a dealer willing to get me the BL3100 for a very discounted price.

    Was wanting any type of feedback on any of the Maruyama HH blowers.
    How long you owned? would buy again? are they not commercial quality? ....any feedback appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.

    Wow, looks like you have the same question that I have reguarding a Maruyama line trimmer. Do you have the engine number for the blowers? AE,CE,LE class ect?

    Good to see someone post :clapping:

    BL3100 has CER300
    BL3200 has CER300 EFORCE
    BL32 has CER300 EFORCE

    Not sure exact differences but all have different part numbers for the engines.
    Talked to Maruyama rep and he told me the subtle differences which I posted.

    Hope someone chimes in on the HH Blowers performance, reliability...etc...etc.

    Good Luck on your quest :cool2:

    I am sitting here looking at an old 2002 brochure, it has the specs for the
    CE,LE,and AE class engines.

    AE - Extreme duty. EPA Cert
    CE - Low Emissions. CARB 2 Cert
    LE - Commercial duty. EPA Cert

    I think this brochure is to old for your model.
