Rated 5 out of 5 by from IT'S A GREAT LITTLE BLOWER I HAD A CORDED TORO THAT WAS THE EXACT SAME VELOCITY (700M3/H) BUT A REAL PAIN TO MANEUVER A CORD AROUND.THIS DOES THE SAME JOB, STARTS EASILY, AND I'M DONE IN A THIRD OF THE TIME JUST BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE TO MESS WITH 150 FOOT OF CORD. SERVICE WHEN I BOUGHT IT WAS EXCELLENT AND AS LONG AS YOU FOLLOW THE STARTING PROTOCOL IT FIRES RIGHT UP AND RUNS GREAT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great blower Those that say this blower isn’t powerful enough apparently had a turbine strength jet powered monster before purchasing this little guy. This bad boy is incredibly easy to start, super reliable, and performs great on my 4.5 acres. It is so powerful, I have to be careful not to blow all my mulch away. I highly recommend this blower and the price point is second to none

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BG 50 The price was right, store employee took it to the back and fueled it and started the blower to make sure it ran right. Blower is light weight compared to some I looked at. Very powerful for its size. It's also easy to start. Love it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed After several months of reading about this product, we finally made our choice and purchased the BG 50. What lead us to make this choice apposed to a back pack model was the sales man stated it was powerful enough to blow the snow at his place and really no need for anything larger as this one handles it all.We do not agree. For a small amount of leaves and such it is good however leaves a large level of dirt / dust behind, to the point we had to re-do the job with a broom, UGH!We have had a backpack model in the past and loved it. We really let ourselves down by choosing a lesser / cheaper model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Budget Blower I bought a house in December and I bought this MY FIRST week in the house. This doesn’t have a vac but it is an amazing blower. This is so amazing that I even have cleared snow with it. I challenge someone to find a lightweight blower that’s better. Even in the dead of winter, this starts in four pulls. For less than the price of a big box blower, you can get this amazing, USA made, blower.
