I have the worst luck with used leaf blowers, so I pulled the plug on a new BG50 today. Only played around with it for a little bit, but so far starts easy, and seems to have a surprising amount of power. Also relatively light. Got the 6 pack of Ultra HP to double the warranty, but the manual states absolutely 0 about break in, so I guess there isnt any special break in instructions. So now no more dragging around an extension cord with the Hyper Tough (lol) axial ( I believe either a clone of, or made by Worx) which by the way is a quite good blower itself. Now just need hedge trimmers and a chainsaw and I will be complete on yard stuff.
