Autumn is in full swing and snowflakes have even begun to fall in some parts of the country. But if leaves are still covering the driveways and sidewalks outside your home, it isn't too late to consider the purchase of a gas blower before winter's chill sets in for good. Craftsman has gas blower/vacuum combination models that not only make fall clean-up a breeze, but offer additional functionality throughout the year. These models will not only help blow your leaves and debris for easy lawn removal, but also vacuum and mulch, greatly reducing the volume of material for clean-up.
You can tackle your home projects with ease by choosing one of Craftsman's gas blowers, including the Craftsman 210 MPH, 450 CFM Gas Blower/Vac or Craftsman 200 MPH, 430 CFM Gas Blower/Vac. Each blower/vac combines a powerful 25 cc, two-cycle engine and Sim-Pul™ starting technology, reducing pulling effort and delivering a smooth start. The Craftsman 210 MPH, 450 CFM Gas Blower/Vac also features cruise control which allows the user to set and maintain constant speed for consistent operation, reducing operator hand and finger fatigue.
The Craftsman 210 MPH, 450 CFM Gas Blower/Vac and Craftsman 200 MPH, 430 CFM Gas Blower/Vac each have a 12:1 mulch ratio and offer variable speed control that can be easily adjusted to the required setting when performing different tasks. The blower/vac can be used year-round on various projects around the home, including clearing light snow off the sidewalk or driveway, cleaning hard surfaces such as the garage floor or deck and removing lawn trimmings left behind by your lawn mower in the spring and summer. For added convenience, the concentrator nozzle provides access to hard to reach areas.
Both blower/vac models are light weight and have single hand operation. The Craftsman 210 MPH, 450 CFM Gas Blower/Vac weighs 11.1 lbs. with air output of 450 cubic feet per minute, and the Craftsman 200 MPH, 430 CFM Gas Blower/Vac weighs 10.1 lbs with air output of 430 cubic feet per minute. Each require minimal blower tube assembly and run on a gas/oil mix. To eliminate the hassle of mixing the gas and oil on your own, purchase the Craftsman 40:1 2-cycle Fuel Mix, a premix that is specially formulated with full synthetic oil, 90+ octane ethanol-free gasoline and fuel stabilizer. The mix provides advanced lubrication, reduces plug fouling, and will keep gas fresh up to two years after the can has been opened.
