Why does my leaf blower bog down when I give it gas?
A dirty air filter is one of the most common causes behind a leaf blower that is bogging down: the air is enough for the engine to idle, but as soon as you switch to full-throttle, the machine will stall. All we need to do is replace the air filter. To do this, start by opening the air filter cover.

Are Homelite Leaf Blowers any good?
I am so extremely happy with my Homelite blower and have had it since 2011.

After all this time, I have never had to replace the fuel lines.
