I have one and have not used for over a year since I got my Shindaiwa's EB630 Backpack blower. The hand held does not have enough power to blow leaves fast enough on grass. The only thing I felt it did good was blow off side walks. Another thing the hand held blowers will do is tire your arms out.
Purchase a back pack first if you do not have one.
I have a Shin hand held blower from 99, still starts right up and blows great. I take a backpack blower and also the hand held. I use the hand held for small residential properties. Sometimes with the residentials, the old folks want to come out and talk, right in the middle of blowing it off. It is much easier to start up the hand held than it is the backpack, easier to get off the trailer too.
