i have owned the gas powered leaf blower for over 10 years. older version has the black handle attached on the front and back. while its not the easiest to start, you have to prime it about 10-15 times, once you get it started it does the job. i just had to replace both of the plastic clear fuel lines. $4 for a replacement roll of gas tubing from lowes that i used to replace the fuels lines on 3 weed eaters. its a little bit weaker then the electric ones out now, but then again you dont have the electrical cord to drag around 100-200 feet. also, cords do eventually short out from all the stress.
I just bought the leaf blower fb25 last week (for $8 more).
seems pretty nice, obviously a refurb in a brown box.
I was hoping it would be more powerful, but not bad at all for the wet leaves around my house.
I wanted cordless, and I didn't want cordless electric because a battery will only last two years or so, and then costs another $60.
gas is cheaper than batteries, not to mention I just add more if it runs out.
power is comparable to a wired leaf blower, except it's portable. Not bad for $38.
It's two-stroke engine makes it lightweight, but make sure you mix oil with your gas!
It comes out to about 1/3oz per tank. The included bottle is enough to mix with a whole gallon.
Got the FB25 blower in this morning. (Fast shipping!) and it fired right up after priming on the 3rd pull. Not the most powerful blower I've used but adequate for most uses. Really lightweight to move around. Runs well. Great deal!
Got the FB25 today. Filled it up, pulled it a few times, and off she went. The power is good considering how light it is and it looked brand spanking new and had no visual clues of being a refurbished model.
