You might look at the CRAFTSMAN BV245 blower with its 27cc-2 cycle gas powered engine and think that it is a super ergonomic nightmare.
Once you get in your hands on the machine, you will find CRAFTSMAN made a supreme effort to design it to be simple to use, despite the inherent weight that comes to 2 cycle engine block.
Features Craftsman leaf blower BV245
CRAFTSMAN BV245 only weights in at 10.2lbs, whereas several gas-powered blowers with the same statistics weight near to 20lbs and need to mount in a backpack.
CRAFTSMAN also made it with a variable speed throttle and vibration elimination to reduce the impact on your shoulder and arm.
It is meant to be utilized more like a leaf blower than a vacuum, but it still does include the lawn vacuum essentials in the package.
It is rated to move a very impressive 450 CFM at a brisk 205 miles per hour.
CRAFTSMAN also adjusted its proprietary simple start ignition system which you see on several of their successful gas-powered devices.
You just prime the engine, choke and then only pull the drawstring for a very smooth start.
If you do want to utilize it as a vacuum, you have to change over the attachments manually, it then has a mulching level of 16;1 which means it can decrease a traditional sixteen bags of leaf litter into just one bag.
- The fact that the CRAFTSMAN BV245 leaf blower is a gas-powered instead of a backpack is somewhat rare in this lineup and you see in this superpower of 450 CFM moving air at 205 miles per hour.
- Costly option
This is one of the heavier hand-held blowers on the market now, just by virtue of its two-stroke gasoline engine.
Still, at 10.2lbs it is not prohibitively very heavy and offers a trade-off of better over its electrical power cousins.
