I am shopping for a blower. When I bought my house a couple of years back somebody gave me a Black & Decker electric blower. I barely use it because I don't want to deal with extension cords and stuff like that. Now I want a gas blower. I have done my reading here and I am not sure about my conclusions. I see Stihl BG55 and Echo PB200 being recommend to home owners. From what I read they seem like they are really entry level with out much power behind them. Are they that much more powerful than an electic blower? Should I be looking at something bigger? I don't need a Porche buy I also don't want a Pinto. I want to use it for grass cutting clean up and for leaves in the fall.
