    ok i have a redmax 5000 backpack blower which works great but being a heavy/fat guy i have dislike fighting to get back on and off and i cut smaller city size lots so by the time wrestled it on it took like 1 mins to blow the walk then back to wrestling it off so a full time cutter told me he uses a craftsman blower for 99 bucks uses it until it dies then goes buys another one well i did that and it worked good for 1 and 1/2 seasons then died of course did not have the redmax with me at the time so had to broom few lawns so anyway my question is what is a good comm hand held that you guys use i have not seen lawn guys around here usesing any other than backpack:weightlifter: DONT TELL ME TO GET BACK TO WRASTLIN any brands and general price would be a help thanks guys/gays

    Redmax, Tanaka, and Shindaiwa all make a very reliable, powerful handheld.

    any of the ones at HD for about $99 have always worked at least 2 seasons and if you clean the screen maybe more.
