    Great value

    After my 10 year old Husky started falling apart I read the reviews on this and decided to try it out. I won’t repeat what’s already reviewed. The new model has an easy to use cruise control so it’s easy to use for a long session.The power is very adequate and handles bushels of wet leaves with little difficulty. What’s remarkable is the value. An equivalent Husky is $700. Just hope I get 10 years life from it.BTW, as my grandfather showed me, always run a two stroke engine dry before putting it away. It helps keep the carb and fuel lines less gunky.

    Buy this

    If you are like me you saw this leaf blower and thought ” is this worth it ? ” The short answer is- Absolutely! I crossed my fingers and bought one of these a few months back. I’ve really run it hard for long hours, I really wanted to give it a good workout before writing a review. I can’t say enough about the power, this thing really works great! I wouldn’t hesitate to buy this again, it is a great value for the price!

    Great value, quality

    So I’ve had this blower since 2022 and feel like now I have used it enough to give a fair review.This is a great machine for the price. It starts after only 2 or 3 pulls every time. It has plenty of force for my 1.5 acres. I can blow the whole yard on about 2.5 tanks full of gas.I have not had any issues with the gas tank leaking, so I guess I have the latest revision.I would definitely but this again even if it’s a little pricey vs other similar blowers.Buy with confidence!!!

    Great customer services!

    I would give the customer service a five stars!After reviewing a bunch of customer reviews about this product, I bought this leaf blower on Amazon one year ago. Compared to the similar products sold in the major home improvement stores, this blower’s quality and price looked great! I relied on it in my routine yard cleaning, gutter cleaning… and it has been working great so far! Recently I found the muffler came loose from the engine body and the metal mesh gasket between the muffler and engine broke into pieces. I sent a message to the customer service for the replacement parts on Amazon website, as I couldn’t find them in the local stores or online. The customer services replied me promptly and told me that the mounting bolts on the muffler should be fastened monthly through the holes in the outside case. However, I didn’t read the manual carefully and totally forgot to do this maintenance check from the beginning. Gratefully, the customer service fedex me all replacement parts including muffler, mounting bolts and gasket for free. It greatly releases my concerns on heavy leaf blowing needs in coming fall. A five star for the great customer services! I really appreciate it.

    This item worked great, with easy to follow instructions, right out of the box. It does use quite a bit of gasoline, but it does have a more powerful motor than my previous one! Have to use it more then once to give a more detailed response/review, but I am happy so far after one use.

    Used the blower yesterday for the first time. Assembled without a problem, started easily leaves were wet and matted as this was the first time this area had been raked. I was surprised at how quiet the unit was! A good purchase!

    This product delivers

    Powerful – does the job – would buy again. Remember…this unit weighs almost 20.lbs. I personally fabricated rigid shoulder supports with extra padding for my unit. The provided straps worked but 20 lbs. can become challenging after an extended use. Other than that the unit delivers everything it promises and at 1/2 the cost of similar units. In some reviews I read about issues with the starting/retracting pull cord. There have not been any issues for me but I thought it was nice that an extra pull cord unit was included with the blower just in case there were any issues. That was a nice touch. 🙂

    Operates well and as advertised. Lots of power for moving large volumes of leaves. It is noisy so hearing protection is required. Used for a few days in a row without any issues. Throttle control is very smooth and allows a great range of control.

    Excellent Backpack Blower!!!

    I’m in my 60’s and I wanted a lighter weight backpack blower with power… and this one is exactly what I wanted and is better than I expected. It’s easy to assemble, start, and maneuver with… and reasonably priced. I’ve used it to blow dry and wet leaves and this blower has the power! I’m looking forward to trying it in the winter on blowing snow off my driveway.

    First of all, I really appreciate all those who wrote reviews on this blower. Your comments helped me decide to buy one without a second thought. I own a small lawncare business and this blower is perfect for the job! Easy to start, not too heavy, and is powerful enough to clear large amounts of leaves. I am also amazed at how comfortable the arm staraps are. Afer two days straight of blowing leaves, I thought my arm would be worn out… but no discomfort at all. I would highly recommend this blower.

    Powerfull, lightweight, easy to assemble & handle

    I just rcvd my Schröder blower today. It took me about an hour to read the instructions, assemble the unit, and mix up the fuel. A bit of pump priming and it started with a roar. I like the weight, easy enough for this 81 year-old to manage. It shoots out a powerful blast that moves wet and dry leaves well. My only suggestion for new users is that before you assemble the tubes E, F, and G you spray a little veggie oil on the attachment end to ease the coupling of the tubes. Of you don’t lubricate a bit the friction of the two plastic tubes makes it difficult to alignm them perfectly.

    Great Value

    I received the blower today. Instructions on putting it together were very good. It only took a few minutes to attach the blower tube. Very easy to start. Very easy to restart. I used it for about 1.5 hours. It seemed to work as well or better than my neighbors Echo blower. Very happy with the purchase. I received the blower 2 days from ordering it. 🙂

    Updates relative to prev reviews

    I read previous reviews prior to purchasing. I was surprised to discover all the critical findings were corrected. The ease of start, the throttle selection etc, have been improved. I’ve used it quite a bit. It’s not the quietest and it’s not the best on gas but the performance, ease of start, comfort while wearing, operation etc are fantastic.

    Powerful Blower

    This is a monster, has more power mph / cfm than a RedMax. Very easy to start, and I was able to blow those hickory nuts out of my lawn, have a million nuts this year. My two sons will be buying one for their homes. While running it it gives you a massage on the shoulders and back. I just love this thing, should have gotten one 20 years ago. The price tag is awesome.

    I can’t believe I waited so many years before getting a leaf blower . I just cut an all day job into 3 hours. This thing works outstanding. And the price was great in comparison to others. I was pushing big heavy piles of leaves with no problem! No complaints so far ! Buy this ! You will NOT be disappointed!

    Compares Solidly To Blowers Twice Its Price

    I own several blowers — a Toro and Worx electric and an Echo gas. Each of them left me looking for something better. My neighbor owns a 560-series Husqvarna that I’ve borrowed a couple of times and found it to be exceptional so I started looking into getting a 570-series (around $500). I then tripped over this entry on Amazon and the first thing that JUMPED out at me (at the time of my purchase at least) was the stellar reviews including something I hadn’t ever seen before — ZERO 1-star reviews (not easy to do ever, but harder with 106 reviews). I also was caught off-guard by the $299 price tag. I assumed this had to be some sort of joke, but just in case I decided to give it a shot.The blower isn’t included in Prime so I waited a few days for it to arrive from Vancouver. It showed up early this morning. I opened the box and the first thing I see is a pile of papers. On top is a warning that is part of the reason I didn’t give this 5-stars: It’s a note informing you that you cannot return this unit to Amazon if you have any problems with it. That was a huge red flag for me. It’s what I often see in garbage products and should be clearly noted in the description on its page on Amazon.I then started to look over assembly and immediately realized this is a bit more involved that your typical more mainstream units. It comes with a carburetor tool to make carburetor adjustments it in case you’re not getting enough power. Another minor red flag. You at least get a tool, but I’m no engine expert, so I wouldn’t know for sure if it’s tuned properly or not, and I’d much prefer something other than needing to keep a tool around.I then got the unit assembled and noted a few pieces that felt more basic in nature. There’s a standard wing nut on the throttle assembly (instead of a more substantial knob perhaps). The throttle (a trigger) also has a lock mechanism to keep it at full power, but anything below full power requires you to hold the trigger at that level. My Echo has a lever that can be set at any level of power. However, 99% of the time you run a blower at full power, so this is another minor point.The strap is also a bit interesting to figure out at first mainly due to very dark color laser-printed instructions on how to attach it. The page is so dark that I could barely make out what they were trying to show. However, a few moments of looking it all over filled in the gaps. One thing the straps could use is another higher-up chest strap. In later use I found the right strap kept creeping down my right arm.I then went out and filled the fuel tank (50-to-1 mix which is pointed out in an addendum to the instructions which call for 30-to-1). They also include a plastic fuel measuring container but with no directions on how to use it. Thankfully I already had a 50-to-1 mix in my garage ready to go.Start up is SLIGHTLY more involved than my Echo. You have to set the choke for Cold (push it up). There’s no clear indicators to really help you with this other than a strange set of icons that don’t make much sense. The Warm icon looks like this: III. The Cold icon looks like II. Your guess is as good as mine. You also need to set the throttle to be locked on which means pushing a safety trigger that normally sits under your right palm, squeeze the main trigger, push a lock button, release the trigger and then set a Start/Stop switch to Start. THEN you prime the carburetor by pumping the bulb 10 times to get fuel into the system. Finally, you pull the starter cord.The first time I pulled I thought I was going to rip the until off the stair I had it on. The motor BARELY turned which put a lot of strain on my pulling arm as the pull slammed to an abrupt stop. The second and third pull were nearly equally rough. The next pull the blower roared into life and I could almost immediately turn the choke to the Warm position.I put the unit on my back, kicked down the full throttle speed, adjusted the placement of the throttle assembly (simple to do) and then noticed something a bit different. At idle the unit was still blowing leaves around. On my Echo the idle is so low that almost nothing comes out of the hose. It’s a slight issue, but one worth noting.Then the magic started. I squeezed the trigger to give it full throttle and immediately realized this thing was stronger than my neighbors 560-series. It was blowing leaves half-way up my long driveway. I’d estimate that this unit is pumping roughly 800cfm out at the nozzle. Quite a feat.It is a bit louder than his unit so I highly recommend ear protection (which is normal for all gas blowers). The unit felt about the same weight as my Echo and my neighbor’s 560-series. A quick check showed it’s actually slightly lighter. It finished the job in no time for a nice quick “spring” cleanup of my front yard. Next up will be the bigger job of cleaning up the back yard.The company also ships this unit with two end nozzles: a “G” which is a standard round-end nozzle and an “H” which ends with a downward-angled rectangular end. It also came with something I didn’t expect — a replacement pull cord assembly. I’m not sure what to make of that. Is this because they expect the existing one to fail quickly? I don’t know. It just struck me as odd, but also nice to have.So far, after a single use I can’t be much happier. For the price paid I’m doubly impressed. As long as you don’t mind a couple MINOR trade-offs, this unit seems really hard to beat. Here’s hoping it lasts a few seasons or more.

    I usually do not write reviews, but this unit from Schröder has compelled me to do otherwise, and I will keep this in a hyper nutshell. Lived here 23 years and the leaves you see are called pin oak leaves, and trust me they are worse than the fluffy oak leaves. Anyway, I have had two blowers in my time here, no names to mention, one handheld and a back pack (BP) blower(s). The progression from the handheld to the BP circa 5 years later was very credible, and the BP I had lasted all of these years with zero issues, basic tune up was all. But as the years waned on up, until one month ago, I had to see if there was a better BP out there, and Yes there is; Schröder. As you look at where my boat sits that that part of the driveway took “zig zagging” to get those darn leaves to the top of the concrete driveway. I just tested the Schröder and I am speechless, this BP ate those leaves for breakfast (TY Scarface!)!! Literally, I went straight up my driveway on one side and then the other; No Zig Zagging and cleared everything; WHAT??!! Bottom line for me, based off of that simple test: Worth Every Single Penny 😀

    Easy to MANeuver — even for a girl

    Got this for a male friend who was in a pinch; his clunky blower that blew out after many years of service. Once it arrived, he added a bit of gas, adjusted the straps & had it up & and running in no time. Fortunately, it arrived at my place, so he played around with it on the property for quite a while. FYI: I used to work in the tree business dragging branches & blowing twigs up to running the chipper. The blowers back then were fun. As a mom? The best investment for two or more kids is gas-powered blowers. It gets them off the games, and the yard work is done. This version is for the 13-17-year-olds who really go at it. It’s a pro piece of equipment to be used in a professional setting, don’t get me wrong, but weight-wise, don’t hang it on your 3rd-grader. Seriously.

    I think it’s powerful

    Having come from a battery powered leaf blower, holy smokes this thing is life changing. It’s way more powerful, like 2-3x. And I don’t have a dead battery every 15 minutes.The downside is the engine. Not specific to this product, but gas engines are always going to be way more complicated than a battery product.The instructions to start this thing is like a take-off check list on a 737 airplane… and it didn’t help that the picture they included didn’t match my product. Talking about a safety button etc, my model doesn’t have a safety button.

    Perfect for Commercial Tree Service Work

    I bought this blower because I refused to spend twice the amount on a Stihl or Echo. I own a tree service and I am tired of getting ripped off by name brands and paying for the name over the product. So, I took a shot and bought this. It works PERFECT. The elbow is a bit weak and I can see it cracking one day. But the do send the blower with an extra rip cord!

    Likes:1. Half the money of the competition. I never heard of this brand nor have my friends/coworkers. The reviews we good and the price was far less so I took and chance. Very nice surprise!2. Great power/cfm3. I only used it once, but I am guessing that this blower will last me for many years.4. The weight is the same as the competition so no complains there.5. Even comes with a container to measure and mix the 2 cycle fuel. How cool is that?Dislikes:1. The blower seems loud. Even with good quality ear protectors. I think I will use a double ear protector when I am running it for a long period of time. However, it is a good size engine what do you expect especially when the engine is right by your ear.2. I’m not a big man so I wish the straps would shorten more. I have shortened them as short as they go. But I am used to such things being smaller all my life.3. The blower rip cord is hard to pull with no place to place your foot to hold the unit down while pulling. However, it starts with one or two pulls.

    An extra pull starter! Wow, that’s pretty cool!

    I have been using a Ryobi backpack blower for the last 10 years. I have had to repair or replace the pull starter 5 times. Bought this about a week ago. Very impressed with the quality and performance. I have been slowly researching backpack blowers for weeks. Considering my needs (non-commercial but living on a very wooded lot in Northern Virginia), I believe this was an outstanding value! Oh, and it came with an extra pull starter and a container designed to allow oil and gas to be mixed accurately. Very nice!

    If you like tools…

    Good ole German engineering. Really can’t beat it. You will like this baby. Very Powerful. Takes a couple pulls to start. But once it fires up…get ready for a good time doing chores. Feels a little heavy when you lift it up but once it’s on your back you cannot tell. It’s fun to blow the grass off my driveway now. Don’t want to put it down. I even clean off my neighbors driveways just because.

    very nice

    This arrived on time and in very good shape. The box was pristine. Upon opening I found instructions right on top. They were very clear and easy to follow. I only needed a Phillips screwdriver to snug up a couple screws in assembling the blower hose. Everything was clearly marked so there was no confusion as to the order of installation.Next was to mix up fresh gas and oil. No oil included so you will need to get it separately. I mixed the fuel and filled the tank.Now the moment of truth. Ready to fire it up. Set the chock, pushed the primer bulb about 10 times, and began pulling the starter cord. I pulled about 5 times, but no start! Then I realized I had not set the on off switch to on! I set the switch to on and it started to run on the first pull. Great I put the blower on my shoulders adjusted the chest and waist straps and went to work. I had a yard full of leaves and it moved them beautifully. I cleared the yard much quicker than my last blower.This blower is well worth the price. So far I am very impressed with it.BTW the backpack blower was very comfortable on my back and shoulders. I could wear it for a long time without any strain at all.

    Backpack leaf blower

    I ordered this expecting very little. I was pleasantly surprised. I kinda put this in between an echo and a red max with a splash of stihl. Exterior appearance looks very similar to a red max until you get to the controls, which are similar to an echo or stihl. Power is almost the same as a red max, in my opinion, and ample enough to get the job done. I’ve always been partial to red max, but for half the price, I have absolutely no qualms with this schroder, yet. If I can update this review after a year of use, I will.

    Powerful blower for great price

    I ordered this blower in 2021. It got a lot of use. I have a Stihl backpack and a Stihl handheld blower. This outperforms both of them. One of the bolts that held the muffler on sheared off. I contacted Customer Service and received a new blower within 7 working days. I give the blower and customer service 5 stars. I was not compensated in any way for my review. After reading some of the negative reviews, I wanted to share my experience. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this blower.

    Great value

    I hesitated briefly in buying the blower because of a few reviews regarding assembly issues and problems bulling the starter chord. I ordered it anyway because of the power. Im VERY glad I did. This machine is fantastic. It’s as strong as it’s rated.I have no idea what the other buyers were talking about in regard to the two concerns noted above. I have arthritic hands and it started easily. The only assembly was putting the nozzle together, and that took 10 minutes.I highly recommend this product.My only hope is that it lasts a long time.

    Great Blower – Even Better Price!

    Honestly I was a little wary of how the blower would be. I read a few reviews about the trigger, CFM not being accurate, questionable adjustments on the car wrat or, replacement parts not accessible, ect. All of them have either been exaggerated or the company has fixed everything going forward.Pros: you can’t beat the price. I was looking at Husqvana 150 and Echo 580t and honestly this blower is clearly more powerful not to mentioned cheaper. The build is solid and you can tell where the company cut corners to provide the price point of ~$325 but it’s clearly intentional and I don’t mind it one bit. It’s easy to put together, took >10mins. The back cushion is just a solid piece of foam, not fabric like Husq or rubber like echo, but honestly plenty comfortable. The straps look like a cheap parachute backpack but they work fine. The vibrations are somewhat poorly managed but honestly I don’t notice it even at full throttle. The throttle is comfortable and adjustable to lock in the speed. The pulling to start is weird at first but very simple once you get the hang of it. Starts right up 2nd pull no problem. The carburetor absolutely was perfect right out of the box but even if you did need to adjust it it’s a simple YouTube video to figure out how to adjust airflow. And if for some reason I needed a spare part their website has every possible part to replace in stock and listed for sale. Overall The company is smart, they provide the best price point and focus on what’s most important for your average home owner. Most commercial guys are looking at name brands and need to wear this backpack for hours long every day. That’s not most homeowners and definitely not me. It’s legit the best blower I’ve had the chance to use and couldn’t believe it was Under $400 it honestly should be closer to $500+ in regards to power and quality. Definitely give this blower a try, it’s totally worth it and You won’t regrets it!

    So far, living up to expitations and more.

    **Review Update**Been over a year now. Blower has bwen a real work horse. Love everything about it. Especially the well padded harness.A couple of improvements would be appreciated. 1.. mold into the frame a foot brace to make starting easier. 2.. add a cruise control to the blower speed control. Basically be able to loc the blower at a preset speed.. would help with trigger fatigue. **Blower arrived the other day. Well packed and additional protective cardboard lining.Very easy to assemble. Only took a few minutes and a philly’s screwdriver.FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Unit is well made and well designed. One thing I did not see in any of the reviews was that the unit comes with 2 blower tips. A faired tip and a round tip. Wondered, because I saw both pictured but not described. The next thing I noticed was unlike other backpack blowers I have had, this one had threaded screws that hold the sections from coming loose. They still use the twist lock sections but with a screw, not into plastic but metal on metal.The unit is powerful. Much more powerful than my old backpack blower or my hand-held blower. With the flared tip, it can move a lots of dry leafs, wet leafs, leaf mold, gravel, blows small sticks and dead wood easily and clears a wide path. For the money it’s a great blower and a good value.Be aware that these ship from BC Canada and had to go through customs which added a day or two.Now for the things you should also know.I assume this motor does not have compression release. Takes some strength and a good stable area to start. I hold the backpack at the top and brace my boot on the lower frame. Takes a couple of pulls normally. Not nearly as easy as other 2 strokes I have had. My 2 cycle snowblower took less effort.Vibration: Evidently this blower also has no Vibration dampening. Not too bad and you sort of get used to it after a while.NO cruise control. Now this may seem like no big deal BUT… Engine speed is controlled by the trigger on the hand grip. No way to keep the motor at full throttle without a finger on the trigger. When you spend hours blowing leafs it’s nice to vary hand positions. Trust me, you will be looking for a rubber band or two if you have a large area to clear.I would say, a tank full of mixed gas will get you about 2 hours of run time.. not bad for the power this generates.Overall, I am very impressed with the quality and utility of the blower. Hope the manufacturer reads this post. With a few low cost modifications this unit could be world class. Maybe that’s what you get with their $700+ model.. don’t know. Reading the description the models sounded basically the same.

    Very Satisfied! Great Warranty!

    Excellent Blower! Especially for the price tag! After about 2 months of use now, I decided to review this blower. The blower is pretty light and easy to assemble. Overall, pretty strong for its size and price point. I have massive trees on my property and I have absolutely no issues rounding up all the leaves quickly and efficiently. About a month into my purchase I was hearing a small ticking noise coming from the engine and the blower was taking be about 10-12 pulls to get started some times. I contacted the manufacturer by email and with simple proof of my invoice/ purchase they sent me a brand new blower no questions asked. They were slightly difficult to reach by phone, I will say, but answered emails promptly. Highly recommend, I would absolutely purchase more Shroder products.

    Good value for money

    Inexpensive, but seems well built. Nice and powerful. Starts easily. My one complaint is that the flexible part of the blower tube is stiff, making it hard to control the tube

    Best value leaf blower available.

    Because of the non-Amazon return and support, I wanted to wait until the end of the season to write this review. Thankfully, my initial experience hasn’t changed. This unit is the best value in leaf blowing if you need to move a lot of leaves.I recently have begun to move away from battery yard tools because the battery technology and price simply can’t compete with the energy density and duty cycle of modern 2 cycle engines using premixed fuel. I have a DeWalt ’60V’ blower and it works very well, but even the larger 9+ah batteries simply don’t have the capacity to deal with more than a small yard. I will keep using it for porch/patio/walkway use, but when you need to move acres of leaves, you need a backpack blower.This blower is comparable in performance to the higher-end ‘prosumer’ and pro backpack units, but you obviously get slightly less durable build quality when you pay half or under the price. Value wise for household seasonal use, that doesn’t matter as much for me as performance. Longevity is a gamble, but using premixed fuel should help keep the carb clean and at a cost of $20/season for me, it’s not a huge cost for the benefits.One issue that was mentioned and I found as well is that the base platform really needs a slightly larger shelf or bar to put your foot on to pull start. This unit has a very stiff pull cord unit (and even includes an extra), it’s not a Honda. You will need to put weight on it to move the cord, it’s a bit hard to step on it.Power wise, it’s very good. Much more airflow than my other blowers. However, ultimately there is a limit to the impeller size in a portable unit and even at this higher end range backpack unit, you simply can’t replicate a cart unit if you really want to ‘rake’ with a blower. Not the unit’s fault, it’s just a limitation of the form factor. I only used the straight nozzle, as I don’t feel the wider ‘scatter’ nozzle really helps.Perhaps most surprising, this unit is very comfortable to wear. The straps are very heavily padded, and there is both a sternum and waist strap. When adjusted properly, it’s been great even when I had an injured shoulder. I’m sure a pro unit is even better, but for one yard it is more than adequate.Overall, while the non Amazon fulfillment and support thing is a bit concerning, from a value point of view I can buy two of these for the equivalent at the big box store, 3+ for a Stihl or similar. With maybe 10-20 hours per year for a homeowner, I think it is worth considering. Probably not the best in every category, but for value it is king.

    Great Value, Powerful, Couple of Caveots

    My handheld blower’s engine seized due to a failed carburetor mount that let air leak past the carburetor and catastrophically lean out the engine. So, new blower since parts cost more than a new one.Note UPDATE below…I gave this Schröder blower five stars based on a performance/price metric and build quality, but there are some live-withs to consider. See “Cons.” — See EDIT –I have three acres of landscaped property out of five acres with lots of oaks having smallish leaves, augmented with redbuds, maples, and others with large leaves. Its an ongoing battle with the oaks all year, others in the fall. The handheld just didn’t do it, but I made it work for about 10 years. I never could blow wet or damp leaves…..This Schröder seemed to offer the performance of the usual suspects at half the cost. Reviews seem good. I bought it.PROS:- This Blower Moves Leaves! After being without a blower for about ten Fall days, I first used the Schröder the day after a heavy rain that added a lot of leaves to the existing ten-day normal Fall accumulation. I spent four hours, three tanks of gas, and moved all the wet leaves and large acorns without a worry. Amazing. The blower’s operational performance is exceptional. Wow.- Reasonable Weight. At just over 20 lbs, its lighter than some in its class. Makes for a nice workout addition to your 10,000 steps around the yard cleaning up. Plus, you get those “magic fingers” vibration through your back as you traverse the yard. What’s not to love?- Well Built. The Schröder seems tight, well constructed and solid. The blower nozzles have set screws to hold them together and include both round and flat blower nozzles. The air filter has both a foam pre-filter and a proper pleated paper secondary filter. All the assemblies have the look and feel of fit-for-purpose and sturdiness. Some thoughtful engineering went into the base blower package.- Comfortable. The thickly padded shoulder straps, and waist and chest straps keep the blower solidly against your body. The pistol grip throttle position is adjustable along the length of the blower nozzle.CONS:- Throttle Trigger is too Stiff. I had to keep switching fingers between index and middle. The throttle return spring is too stiff. The trigger itself is wide enough, but trigger pressure is just too much after a while and your finger tells you it has had enough. Yes, I was out there about four hours, but your trigger finger shouldn’t be the limiting factor. I commented to myself about this stiffness as I was pre-assembling the unit – and it proved out in application. I will take the throttle assembly apart and see if I can cut down a spring somehow, or identify the source of the stiffness and relieve it. We’ll see.- Single Position Throttle Lock. Rather than a friction-based throttle lock that allows holding any throttle position, this unit has a button that holds the throttle at about 3/4. That may be fine for most uses, but not for heavy, wet leaves when you need all the power you can get.- Recoil Starter is Very Hard to Pull. No, I’m not a wimp. The recoil spool is only about 2.5 inch in diameter and the engine must have about 13:1 compression 😉 Bad combination. There is no place to put your foot on the blower to hold it while pulling the cord. So, set blower on the ground, put left hand on the rubber neck above the carburetor, pull the cord, get only about one compression stroke as the blower jerks and slides. Fortunately, it starts right up. My wife is pleased that she’ll never be able to start it herself.- Unable to Blow Right to Left. A benefit of the handheld blowers is you can switch them between your hands and blow across your body, right to left, or left to right. Nice when you get into tight spots. By design, backpack blower nozzles are off your right hip. You cannot blow from close in front of you to the right. Nature of the beast.CONCLUSION:I’m keeping it. I love the power, the weight, the magic fingers. I’ll figure out something with the throttle, live with the recoil starter, and put the about $300 additional that a usual suspect blower would cost toward another project.As with all power tools, wear ear protection.Note, if you need to adjust the carburetor for altitude, you will need the larger “ACircle” carburetor adjustment tool. Never mind if you don’t know what that means.UPDATE 11/21/2020:I took the pistol grip throttle assembly apart – three screws and an allen bolt – to see what can be done about the stiff throttle. A lot, actually.Both the trigger and the throttle interlock have circular springs; both are easily removed. Since the carburetor itself has a fully functional return spring, the one on the handle is a backup, I suppose. The throttle pressure is SO MUCH BETTER without that spring on the trigger. Then, removing the spring on the interlock keeps it depressed so you don’t have to keep a firm grip on the handle and can depress the throttle without actively squeezing the interlock. I hid both springs in the handle up near the on-off switch in case, well just in case.See the two pictures of the opened up throttle assembly – one with the springs in place, the other with them removed.Also, regarding starting the unit. Placing a firmly weighted left hand on top of the air filter housing, or on top of the exhaust housing next to the spark plug improves the recoil pull experience. OK.Another tank and a half of fuel this afternoon and I’m a happy camper. I’d buy this again, but hope I never need to do so.Update: 3 January, 2024Three years in and the blower continues to impress me. The only issue is a broken plastic waist belt clip. I replaced it.

    So happy

    I finally had a nice day to get my leaf flower out of the box since it has arrived. It was super easy to assemble. I read the reviews and took another customer’s suggestion in using coconut oil to soften the ends so that the plastic would slide together easier. And whola, it worked great. I filled it up with fuel, primed it a little on the handle and within a few full pulls, it started right up. I set it on my 4 foot retaining wall, to put it on my back and shoulders. This is nothing new. I had to do that with my older leaf blower that I had. Even though the weight appears to be heavy when just carrying it single-handed it is very comfortable on the back. Be sure to take a few moments in adjusting the straps tightly before getting started. Also be sure that all screws and clamps are tightened on the arm. I didn’t have one tight enough and it slipped after about 30 minutes of use, but easy to fix. Anxious to start it back up and see how it performs for an entire day’s of yard work. But as of now, I’m very pleased and happy with how well it starts and performs.

    Powerful and affordable

    I bought this blower from Amazon last year. It starts on the third pull every time. Very reliable.At 920 CFM this blower has a lot of power. I bought this to replace a 10hp Little Wonder push blower that died after 21 years. The Little Wonder had greater power, but too much for some spots. I find with this backpack blower I don’t have to stop and switch to a rake or hand-held blower for the difficult spots. With greater control it doesn’t take me much longer to do my lawn (1.3 acres), and it is easier to carry 19 lbs. than to push 170.Mine has a cruise control for the trigger, so Schröder must have added it after some of the earlier reviews were written. One thing that is slightly annoying is the handle occasionally twists as I use the blower. Certainly not a deal breaker, just something I had to get used to. I hardly notice it now.Conclusion: I am very happy with the performance of this blower. It does an excellent job. You can’t beat it for the price.

    Not bad for my first gas backpack blower

    Had to clean up the leaves in the backyard and get them out to the street in front. Went with this blower because of the many positive reviews. Came in a few days. Waited several days. But on Friday afternoon I put it together. Instructions were close but it seems the trigger design had been changed or simplified so it didn’t exactly match up. Took me a few minutes to figure out how to get the trigger handle onto the moveable blow tube. I didn’t want to break anything. Took a little bit of pressure but it finally slipped on. Then twisted on the last piece of the blow tube which has a customer design where it twists on with a series of channels. There are a couple of screws that holds it in place. Was a bit challenging to get the screws into the holes with them lined up correctly but finally got them in. Mixed the gas. Have a one gallon gas can. I purchased the 2.6oz two stroke oil bottles. Set of six. One 2.6oz bottle to 1 gallon of gas and there is the 50/1 ratio required. I put the gas in the tank. Maybe 80% full. Then primed the fuel line with the bulb. Pulled the rope twice as instructions said. And not having a backpack blower before I didn’t think to secure the blower with my other hand. So when I pulled it the first time it spun around in my driveway. Awkward moment. But if you hold it down with the pressure on the top it secures it enough to get a good pull. Moved the choke to half open. Pulled again. Nothing. Then I realized I forgot to click the start switch on the trigger handle to ‘start’. Clicked that and the next pull it started right up. Sounded solid. Let it idle a little high for a few minutes using the switch on the trigger handle. It allows you to put it at full power if needed without the need to hold the trigger down. I went about blowing the leaves from one side of my yard to the other. Takes a little practice but much better than my electric leaf blower with the extension cord that gets caught on everything. One issue I had. I was blowing the leaves and I was smelling a strong smell of gas. I thought maybe the unit was just breaking in or was running rich. I turned it off and set it down to rake some leaves from under the deck and I noticed the gas cap had come off the tank and there was very little gas left in it. And much of it had spilled out onto my lower back. I know I had bumped into my fence at some point and maybe I spun it off. But when I refilled the tank I made sure I tightened the cap very secure so it didn’t come off again from a bump or vibration. All in all very pleased with my first go with the new blower. Would recommend

    Big and somewhat heavy.

    This thing is a machine!Mine came with a spare starter rope and reel, and with the harness already attached. And a bag containing a couple of tools. The manual is comprehensive with color illustrations on installing the harness. After unpacking (it came in one heavy cardboard carton – well protected) it then, I read the manual. Then proceeded to get ‘er ready to use.Assembly involves snapping the blower wand together and installing the locking screws The wand sections are molded with detents that snap when each section is rotated inside the other – difficult for me to do because of the effort involved and I’m a fairly big guy. I smeared some grease on the detents – just a smidgen-then used a half sheet of 400 grit sandpaper in each hand to grip the pieces of slick plastic wand, gave ’em a twist and they snapped together. You cannot line the locking screws with the moulded-in nuts unless the sections are completely twisted together.I had a piece of wand left over – unit came with two wand end pieces, one round and another oval. Take your pick and save the other one – you’ll use it eventually.As I already explained, mine came with the harness already attached to the blower but getting it figured out took me several minutes then several more to understand how to “wear” the blower. A good place for a picture of someone using it. I got this clear in my mind and tightened buckles and did a try-on. Had to tighten them more until most of the adjustment was used. I wear a 44 shirt so I’m not petite. I wonder how someone that is can get the harness small enough. As I already mentioned, this thing has heft. It’s gotta fit well to be comfortable so if you’re like me , you’ll be adjusting the harness until you get it just right.Next, I filled the fuel tank – WITH 50:1 mix – then set the blower on the ground purged the fuel system using the plastic bulb on the carb , turned the switch to on – it’s on the throttle grip along with the trigger throttle and the “cruise control” – gave it some choke then pulled the starter rope. This engine ain’t no toy, and it has serious compression. Be prepared for that.Fired on the third pull and started on the fourth.With the machine running and sitting on the picnic table, I managed to climb into the harness and buckled up.Just like that, I’m blowing leaves! It took over an hour to burn a tank of fuel but I was ready for a beer anyway. I am not at all disappointed with my choice of backpack leaf blowers – yet. I’ve only an hour or so experience with it so more use may cause some warts to surface, but I doubt it.I gave it only four stars mostly because there’s no way to get this machine on without starting it first and because I cannot see how much fuel is let in the tank without a mirror. If it were offered with a 110 Volt electric start, I would have bought it .
