Not bad deal. But the 2 5ah batteries or 4 5ah batteries bundle on other online sellers is better, if you need batteries.

A friendly piece of information got me two downvotes already. I am so sad and don't want to comment on any deals in the future.

Buy this bare tool and miss the dirt cheap batteries on the other web sites.

Be sure to notice that it requires two batteries and a charger that are not included. This is just the bare tool.

Yes, I know it says "Tool Only" in the description, but that's easy to overlook, so I thought I'd call it out separately before people made a hasty purchase and were disappointed when they had to spend another $100+ on batteries and a charger. Good deal if you already have batteries and a charger, but if you're just starting out I really recommend looking at one of the bundles instead of this bare tool.

I have this and it's a great tool. However, be sure to have an extra set of batteries charged as this burns through fully charged batteries quickly.

This is the same price for the blower year round on eBay. I understand Amazon is more convenient when it comes to shipping and returns, but if you don't already have the batteries you're better off buying it as a bundle on eBay. It's so funny to see a $100 blower actually sell for $100 on Amazon and people go crazy. The blower itself is great I use it all the time.

You probably got downvoted because you mentioned better deals on other websites but gave zero evidence that such deals exist. With respect, if you want to get upvoted, provide some actual useful information.

I don't disagree that for someone just starting out with no existing batteries or charger, this probably isn't the greatest deal out there. The kit with four batteries and a dual charger [amazon.com] for $320 (which is a pretty typical price, according to CCC) is probably a much better deal for those people, considering a two-pack of 5.0ah batteries [amazon.com] will run you about $160 regular price (and you'd still need a charger) or around $220 for two plus a charger and bag [amazon.com]. For $320, you're essentially getting the tool and charger for free. And I'm not saying $320 is the best price available for that kit -- just an example from Amazon.

eBay usually has this item all year round for $100. Occasionally eBay will give you discounts ...Fatboytools the seller

Fatboytools via eBay has it for $108 and 96 quantities sold.

I like your suggestion of Fatboytools via eBay better

If you think you missed this deal because this post says expired, think again. Fatboytools on ebay is still selling them at $108.00 with free shipping and no tax. Total no brainer to get this.
