This is the lowest price that I can remember on this HIGHLY rated blower.
(Average price has been about $130)
(There was a rebate a year or two back but not sure what final price was...might have been close to this. Either way, haven't seen it in a long time).

Hitachi RB24EAP 23.9cc 2 Stroke 170 MPH Gas Powered Handheld Blower (CARB Compliant for $98.99 with Free Super Saver Shipping from Amazon.com

Not sure how long price will last this low! (it is even lower than used - and Amazon is famous for selling a few low then going back up...so you have been warned) Smilie

Know this:

* it has known seal problem with cap, and gas will spill on you
* it has known problem with gas lines, only runs on half-choke

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A WARRANTY SERVICE SHOP NEAR BY

Tempting. I miss my Husq. backpack blower. After having a backpack style, I wouldn't want to go back to a handheld, even for $100 less. (sadly, I killed mine with a mis-labeled can of gas -> no oil = dead 2-stroke)

Fantastic blower. Bought it couple of years ago around the same price with a 25$ rebate. Perfect.

I was waiting as we'll but with this weight and CFM and warranty I figured this was worth it. Plus much easier to grab and go...and only 99 bucks.

But I hear ya....I want both!

I'm pretty sure the one I had was this one:

Easy starting 2 cycle I've ever owned (I think I bought mine for $150-170, it's $220 at the moment).

431 CFM.

Depends on the model and pricing...

But 431 is the one up for discussion - which is about the same as this handheld (441CFM).

Remember it is their rated CFM...

this is a nice blower. Got this about 2 years ago for even less. Great on gas and plenty of power for a handheld

Thx Djap, trying to figure if this is worth it since we already have an electric blower. Ours seems pretty weak though and our house has never ending leaves dropping!

Really feel the need to buy this.....been wanting one..but I live in the city with a typical city lot so not too much ground to cover. Not sure to get this or just keep using the rake for the front lawn and a broom for the driveway.

Two reasons to use a rake:
1) You're on a small city plot. How much effort does it take and what kind of leaf accumulation can we be talking about?
2) Isn't there enough noise in the city without people using gas-powered blowers?

One reason to get the blower.
1) It's a new tool. If any women are reading this and don't really understand. Don't try. It's a guy thing. Og the caveman's wife used to ask him why he needed so many sharp rocks and pounding rocks and pointy sticks. She nagged Og about it, because certainly Og had enough tools. Nope!

So FBomb... it's your call. However, millions of years of evolution, telling us to make and gather tools so we can build, fix.hunt and protect is a tough thing to ignore.
