My husband has a small business seal coating driveways. I occasionally go with him to help out. He does all the trimming while I go behind him and use the blower to clean them off afterwards. My biggest complaint has been carrying the heavy blowers around. He finally broke down and bought a backpack type blower. While shopping around, he decided on the Makita 75.6 CC 4-Stroke Backpack Blower. This has been such a great help. It's very easy to use and doesn't wear you out. This blower is very lightweight. The performance of the blower is exceptionally great. It's very powerful and gets the job done the first time. I don't have to go back over any spots. It cleans away leaves, dirt and any other debris left behind. This blower has always been easy to start and have never had a problem keeping it running. The Makita 75.6 CC 4-Stroke Backpack Blower was a great purchase for us and a great addition to his tool collection. I would most definitely like to recommend it to everyone.
