Ease of Use:
If you want this to be the last blower you ever need to purchase this is the one for you. I wouldn't recommend any other unit over this model. This unit is more reliable then an 80's toyota pickup
I own two of the older models (PB400) that were branded under John Deere and Toro, both were manufactured in the 1980's and both run like the day they were new. Main housing and frame are made of metal. Parts are still available for the 30 year old units not that you need many. Very powerful, more reliable then any other blower made. There is a reason they still make these basically unchanged over the years.
Used product for 3+ Years
Slightly on the heavier side due to metal construction but there is all plastic units that weigh just as much.
