I have been researching backpack leaf blowers for months now. The yard is too large for a handheld. I was set on the Echo 413 and everyone said to get a Husqvarna or Stihl, but then I stumbled across the Tanaka TBL-4600. I was very impressed by the stats on paper, but I have never heard of the brand before. I did some more research and found Tanaka is owned by Hitachi. this make me feel more confident in the brand, but how well does the unit work? I read a few reviews on this site and others and found that the unit is pretty solid. My brother-in-law and I both want to get the TBL-4600 but we dont have a dealer nearby. Are there any dealers that have websites it can be purchased on? We are both very impressed with what we have read about the unit and are anxiously waiting getting one of these.
