Anyone know anything about this site? Was thinking about picking these up from HD. Wanted to test it out next to my gas trimmer and be able to return if needed.

I've used moversdirect - their parent site with no issues.

I believe they are a big direct to consumer company for mowers, snow blowers, and yard tools.

Yes, the sites main page shows the banner with the ad/model number. $200 cheaper than Home Depot after tax.

Nice! That's a pretty good deal!

I am getting sick of dealing with my crapsman gas trimmer. I have a good gas blower which I would highly recommend.
https://www.amazon.com/Hitachi-RB...B003VYC31Q

There goes $300 out of my account EEK!

But considering its $448 + 10% tax = $492 locally. I saved $200.

Thanks!

Same thought process I had, unfortunately I am in IL, but I'll take that deal all day!

Great deal. If this is as good as I think it will be, I can get rid of my 4-cycle trimmer. I already know that my one ego blower performs as well as my hitachi blower, so that's another gas tool to get rid of.

Home Depot is starting that promo on 05/01/2017 with choice of blower or 9.0 battery or hedge trimmer

If have the blower and its sucks I would go for the hedge trimmer or extra battery

There are good and not so good reviews of the blower on youtube.
https://www.youtube.com/results?s...wer+review

I already have an extra 9.0 and don't need the hedge trimmer.

Hopefully the Fuel blower will be good for the garage or Camp trailer when I don't want to fire up the gas trimmer or other smallish areas.

What don't you like about the blower? Not enough power? Not ergonomically balanced? Runtime?

It's kinda weak compare to the higher voltage blowers. I am heavily invested in their 18 volt system but decided to go with the Ego 56v blower and so glad I did. See the comparison of the Ego vs Milwaukee blowing air up at a soccer ball in midair on YouTube

What do you mean when you say "that" promo? Home Depot will have this combo for $299 starting May 1? (Or battery or hedge trimmer).

I'm also curious about this, I just bought this trimmer 2 weeks ago, maybe I can return it and buy it again with the promo
