[Amazon.ca] Amazon.ca: Hitachi RB24EAP 23.9cc Gas Powered Handheld Blower $129.99

hey all

Great price for a 2 cycle leaf blower and it comes with 7 years warranty (for consumers, not commercial users), it works AWESOME on snow too, i own this blower and it blows and clears up the snow on the windshield / driveway without hiccups or issues.
blower link: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B003VY ... UTF8&psc=1
it's no brainer for $129... to be delivered by Oct, perfect timing for yard cleaning.

P.S.: for those who dont have gas blower, u need to get this mixture and mix with your gas (i use shell v power unleaded fuel) Hope it helps u all.

Read title as “Hitachi gas powered handheld” and was wondering who they built this model for. Then I realized it wasn’t the personal handheld device they are so well know for...

I've had a hitachi string trimmer for 7-8 years and it has been bullet proof. If I didn't already have a blower, I would strongly consider this one.

Did you use ethanol-free gas? That is what is best for all outdoor power equipment.

Yeah, that's why you had problems. You need to use ethanol free gas in small motors as the fuel lines/carbs/etc... get eaten by ethanol in regular gasoline as you found out to your detriment.
