So what brand of blower do you prefer and which type backpack or hand held? What are the pros and cons of each? I was going to buy a back pack blower from my dealer but he is trying to talk me out of it and just go with a hand held which is cheaper but the back pack style just seem's more versatile to me? So i will ask the pros thats what i told him!! I love this site! Thanks Guys for all your help!!
