If my spelling sucks it because Im shot right now. I got a new lawn and it about and acre or two and I bought my redmax and was going to buy a walk behind blower but I had short funds. That poor thing ran for about 6 hours straight! And refilled about 2 or three times and I had that thing full throttle most of the time except the flower beds. I used it on the whole lawn!!! At the end of the lawn I had blew leaves about 2 or 3 feet high and blew them it the woods and this thing rocks!! Never bogged and the motor ran mint and didn't hesitate or anything.The arm blew off twice even though I tight the crap out of it its just so strong. It blew the leaves about 20 feet in front of me in a second. There is less walking with this blower even in the flower beds it blows leave about 20 feet straight by 10 feet wide. But of course I went threw the lawn real good and got every leaf and those little baby brown leaves out. Customer said I am the best one so far. He gave me food, lol. I couldn't believe the quality versus the shindy. This thing gets everything event he old leaves in the side of the curb and the water was deep. That was my first Spring cleanup 9 more to go! Need to buy a Little wonder 13 HP this fall.
