I purchased this 4 cycle Craftsman Back-Pack blower before last fall, and since then, I've used it to clean up my yard and blow my driveway clear of snow!! I purchased an ECHO 2 cycle back-pack blower for $500 and I'll tell you what.....for the extra $250 you'll leave in your pocket, the craftsman is durable, powerful and easy to use!!! For the homeowner, this is the best bang for your American dollar!! I've tested them all!!
Very useful item good price
I was disappointed with the power, or lack there of. Instead of returning it immediately, I kept it and wasted many additional hours every time I used it. In order to use the following fall, it needed to be brought in for service due to failure to start. By the end of the second season, it began to have starting issues again. You had to "play" with throttle and settings to get it started. Finally, it would not start. Last year I went back to my smaller, electric blowers. I do not wish to pay $100 to get this fixed so it is going into the garbage! A true WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY!!! I wouldn't recommend to someone I strongly disliked.
It is effective and a lot easier to use than the ones you hold. I like that I can just put it on my back and blow the yard as I have over an acre to keep clean
Used for one season, just barely. after just a few hours of use it started losing power. By the end of the season it looks as if the motor is blown, I called sears, they wont honor any warranty claim on it, and refuse to tell me what parts I might need to replace. ( im guessing piston, rings, and gaskets, but I can;t get the info. I love craftsman, but they are selling a horrible product in this blower.
had many problems with this blower: gas cap started leaking, engine stopped working, send it for repair, after i picked it up from sears still not working and had screws missing don't buy it is not good at all
Works great with great power. I was worried it wouldn't have enough power but it works awesome!
Had it for 1 year and it's engine just stoped working. I take care of my tools and never had problems with any of my other Craftsmens products until this one and there cords drills! I will neaver buy another craftsman tool or blower again. start making your garden products here in the U.S.A. like you use to!!!
never owened one but it does what I need.... starts effortlessly...really blows...
