Just the Right Size!
The 130BT is a good quality backpack leaf blower. I have 3/4 of an acre, which is located within a national forest. I have a number of hardwoods on my property and I am surrounded by forest. I get A LOT of leaves! I have previously hand raked my property and my wife suggested getting a backpack leaf blower to make the job go faster. After much research I went with the 130BT. What use to take several days, now takes one! Love it.
The blower was easy to assemble, all I needed to do was attach the tubes and the hand control. Took two pulls on full choke to turn over and one pull with choke closed to start out of the box, and then one pull warm. After a fall of leaf blowing, she still starts from cold the same. Functions perfectly every time.
It's not heavy at all for all day usage, and the vibration only begins to bother me after multiple hours of continuous usage. The blower is powerful enough for blowing large amounts of heavy wet leaves and flies through at moving dry leaves.
Only complaint is that a flat nosed tube end was not included with blower. I purchased a flat nosed end after noticing that the blower works best and fastest when you are able to blow under the leaves and lift them off the ground to push them. The flat nosed tube end works best for this and should be included with the blower.

Does the Job
Starts easily and every time. Lightweight and does the job. Much quieter than the previous (different manufacturer) blower I had with more power for less money.

I have used the small hand blowers of a different brand before and was pleased until it tore up. I decided to purchase the BT-130 and was so surprised at the extra power for a little more money. I have been more than pleased with the BT-130 with the ease of starting, light-weight and so far reliability. I would recommend this product highly.

This blower is very difficult to start. It requires many pulls on the cord. I usually have to spray a carb cleaner into the carb to get the blower started.
I took it to a service location one time and the tech had a hard time starting it, too. He sprayed carb cleaner and suggested that I do the same. It's really annoying.
