    I had a Home Depot gift card as well lasy year. Don't get the PB-260. It is basically a hang blower on a back pack. I have the PB-403, which I believe is similar to the PB-413. I have about a half an acre and it is more than enough power. For the extra $30, get the PB-413. Great value at $299.

    I would look at the cfm at the end of the tube. Some rate cfm at the housing. I have a redmax EB 7001 it does a great job. H.D. doesn't sell Red max though.

    Why don't you get something else with the gift card, like seed or fertilizer as you need it (I'm pretty sure HD will give you another card for the value of what was not spent), and get what kenmac got from another place.
