This is a good blower/vac. It has lasted for quite a few spring and fall clean ups. My only problem is with the vacuum tube attachment. I had to add a screw to keep the vac tube from continuously falling off. Just had to add this... just last fall (2012), the zipper on the bag when kaflooey. That means it's only used as a blower now. Cheap plastic zipper.... Durability except the vac bag zipper Durability except the vac bag zipper, made of plastic, no longer functions. I haven't checked to see if I can get replacement bag, probalt price prohibitive even if I can find on.
