    I loved old design stihl tools,(BG86), but heard enough bad about new ones that I saw fit to look elsewhere. I also had great luck with redmax trimmers in the past. I found this Husqvarna blower, (exact same look, specs as redmax model), and figured I couldn’t miss on the price. Bought in late 2018, used on light snows and by late spring, idle is out of adjustment. I hope that’s all it is. I now see also that I need a special tool to fit adjustment screws. Not impressed if this is what Husky/ redmax has become since Husky takeover. Never had such an issue with older stihl, echo or redmax tools.

    + PROS: great price, free shipping
    - CONS: carb/ idle out of adjustment after a few months use.
