This is one fine machine! Amazon literally had it on my front door step less than 24 hours after I purchased it.
I read the negative reviews and can only assume they were written by whiney Democrats with nothing better to do than make stuff up and complain.
I'm an old school guy who restores cars and uses all sortsa tools and machines in old school ways, i.e., no safety glasses, hearing protection, gloves, respirators, helmets, harnesses, plate armor, parachutes, sandbags, etc....
First of all, instructions are only for the simple minded. I don't even know why things come with them, they just take up room and have to be thrown away.
Assembly. The assembly for this thing is so easy, it practically puts itself together. So anybody bitching about that probably needs help opening their own beer.
They probably don't even drink beer.
Noise. Its no damn louder than your lawn mower. The tulips complaining about the noise probably play Adam Lambert in their Nissan Leafs louder than this thing blows leaves.
The Bag. Throw it in the garbage with the instructions. You don't even need it. Just keep the dog in the house and send the old lady and the kids to the mall so they don't get beaned by a walnut.
Function. It blows and sucks better than Stormy Daniels. With the bag off, you can grind up leaves and small twigs to your hearts content and then just blow the debris outta the way without changing stuff around.
Its heavy. Maybe for Adam Lambert its heavy. There are at least a dozen positions you can hold this thing in. Change your grip as needed.
Why 4 stars? Because I'm not sure how rugged it is. It works like a champ, but the housing and attachments are all light gauge plastic. Stuffs snaps on and off with plastic clips and like everything else these days, its built to fail.
Price and performance make this one a solid investment if you wanna not just blow leaves around, but pulverize em, too.
