  • Adjustable Air Flow: The unit features a 3-position adjustable wind vane that allows you to direct your airflow straight, 15 degrees up, or 15 degrees down. For additional convenience, a forward-flow attachment is included and allows the user to redirect the airflow from the side to the front of the push blower.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 76 dB can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered walk-behind blowers.

    I bought this a few years ago, don;t remember the price. Right out the box, I couldn’t get it started. Eventually I figured out the directions to push the primer bulb 10x to start didn’t work. I have to pump it 20x and then when it starts I need to keep pumping the primer bulb till it warms up a little. Once I figured that out, it runs fine.

    + PROS: Moves a lot of leaves.
    - CONS: Hard to figure out how to get it to run. Directions where wrong.
