We love the coolflex backpack design that is available with this model. Not only does it keep a person cool while they are wearing it, it helps reduce back fatigue as well.
- Review Wind
Extremely comfy for back injury prone individuals.
- The Filter Master
The actual engine construction is the most attractive part of this leaf blower. Basically, it comes with a 32cc 4 cycle engine that delivers a top-notch performance. The fun thing is that it does not mix oil and gas.
