Review of Gas BackPack Blower

By Pizza Roy

from Lady Lake FL

Verified Buyer


  • excellent quality
  • Good Warranty
  • Reliable Manufacturer


  • Heavy
  • Requires Adjustment

Best Uses

  • Removing Debris
  • Removing Grass Cuttings
  • Removing Leaves

Comments about 42cc Variable-Speed Gas BackPack Blower:

Use the blower to blow off driveways and streets of grass cuttings and leaves, etc. Blower is a bit heavier than I thought, but if you adjust it properly the weight isn't so bad. It is definitely better than carrying around a hand held gas blower for a long period of time.

      • Leaves Debris Snow

      Comments about 42cc Variable-Speed Gas BackPack Blower:

      Great starter in cold or summer. Actually it made leaf removal "fun". Very comfortable to wear, little vibration, (almost relaxing). I do wear ear protection, but the operating sound isn't bad. East to transport from place to place. Just remove the nozzle and it fits in the car. Wish I had one years ago, when I hated leaf removal.

              Comments about 42cc Variable-Speed Gas BackPack Blower:

              This unit is light weight yet offers good power. The ergonomic design of the harness makes it easy to lift and strap on, yet comfortable for extended uses. The motor is mounted on springs which dampens vibrations. The unit is exceptionally quiet considering the motor is so close to your head.

                  your engine may not have warm up yet, or it may still in choke mode, or air and fuel mixture need to be adjust due to elevation where you live.
