Hey guys, got this in package deal with speedy Murray and Poulan push mower. We are having a snowstorm and snow is light. It fires very easy and is old school cool. Fuel shut off and guy put huge fuel filter on it. He supposedly has air filter housing to give us. Dad tried it out and works quite well! The tube is taped and hacked up, will work on making new one or buying new.

No kidding. It would probably last the average homeowner a year or more.

Kori, it fires right up too! We have the air cleaner at least, will have to put a normal fuel filter on it.

I like some of the older commercial backpack blowers. Some of them have some interesting designs like that.

Well my friend Bob GAVE US ANOTHER ONE! This one in much better condition. Sat over three years, filled tank some and after some pulling fired up and runs GREAT!? :)
We might give the other one to my sister and sell this one or keep it?

I tend to think these used commercial backpack blowers have the ability to outlast a new off the shelf consumer model edition. They're built from a durability standpoint, a lot beefier and I think so long as the engine still has good compression, should have no problem going for a very long time.
