    I just did a search for info on this blower. It came up with one result, it was a homeonwner. I was just wondering if anyone is using this blower and what you think of it. I am considering getting one.

    They are kinda weak. The 155 is stronger and the 165 is the same as the Kawi KRB700B which is what I have and yes, it does some serious wind.

    I have the Echo pb2100 and it works great. It also costs about $40- less.

    I actually thought the husky handhelds are too heavy and I think they are quite ugly.

    lawncare, it's not a hand held. It's a backpack blower.

    Anyone else used this blower?

    If it is for only light stuff then it will work fine but don't expect it to do much with leaves etc.

    I had one and took it back (Lowes).....not enough power for what I was trying to do. My old handheld blew more air!!

    I myself don't like the controls on the tube. But if it blew wet grass off concrete it would work for me. Not many leaves in Central Florida so I could get by.
