scored this old kaw powered blower on Craigslist for just $40. It’s old but it rips! I really just wanted that lil engine though. Never seen one like it before.

the petcock had a rubber piece in it that had perished and wasnt letting fuel through. i drilled that out and put a new shut off on and shes good to go again.

i did the same. saw another one that appeared newer. im guessing this is late 70's early 80's? they do have a website and some current kawasaki powered backpacks and trimmers. kinda spendy too.
this thing is built well. cast aluminum or pot metal blower housing, rubber mounts on a thick steel frame. lots of metal. big fuel tank. nice pneumatic tires. manufacturer claims to be inventor of backpack blower. looks like youre both in new jersey.

Jersey Boys do tend to exaggerated a bit....:rolleyes:

That looks great for a machine that is 40 years old.
