This is a good, powerful leaf blower and the vaccum part of it works well. The only thing I had to do was to enrichen the low speed screw in order to get it to accelerate properly. I advised Jack's Small Engines of this problem. It required about a 1/2
turn out using the proper tool. I have not used it much as of this review but it is ergonomic and has a lot of power. It also starts easy.
