"Picked up one of these last January, used daily all year, great bit of kit for the money, never skipped a beat. Doesnt have the grunt of the larger blowers but perfect for light blowing as you say "

"I have a cheap domestic Bosch one which is either full speed or off, so I'm ready now to get a more professional model I can graduate. I'll probably have to check out some YouTube reviews but want a shortlist really "

"I don't have one, but I do run Honda 4-stroke blowers and I find them much more pleasant to use compared to any 2-stroke. I've said to myself that next time I need to replace the Honda I will do with a Makita. They look great value."

"I looked at Stihl and Ego, and ended up buying the Ego ST1401. Really impressed with the ruggedness, ease of use,ability to alter length of shaft. It's also got the power load, although that is handy, it wasn't my main driver. Battery life is good,…"
