Great blower. This is my second one.
I've had this blower for going on 10 years. It still runs like a champ! The only issue I had was a fuel line that got brittle and needed to be replaced. It still starts on the first or second pull. I bought a second because it's been such a great product.

Very happy with blower
Starts easily and warms up quickly. The Hitachi feels much more solid, has more blowing power and less vibration than my previous blower, a Husqvarna 125B. Great for blowing leaves and debris out of gutters. I also use it to clean the sawdust off my tools and the driveway after woodworking. Have used it for only about 1 hour, on 2 different occasions and so far it has been great.

Awesome hand help leaf blower!
I’m very pleased with this tool. It’s the second one I have bought. It’s far superior to the STIHL 56 series and the Echo I’ve used for similar tasks. Outstanding wind velocity for a hand held rivaling some backpack models. It’s a super value!

Reliable
It has been very reliable for the 4 years I've owned it. The only problem was the return line for the primer bulb leaked because it apparently degraded and shrunk and pulled out of the fuel tank. I fixed it easily enough with a few inches of replacement "Tygon" 3mm x 5mm fuel line. Construction is rugged and it is a solid performer, starts easily, and is light and compact enough to go where needed.

What is the ratio of gas and oil for this blower
teddy on Oct 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I use non-oxy premium with a 50:1 mix. Does cost a little more but it is worth it. This is a great little blower.
What's the oil to gas ratio?
Thomas S on May 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The manual states 25 to 1 to 50 to 1. The service dept says 50 to 1 is the best for normal use. GREAT/LONG lasting. easy to start blower. Use at least mid grade gas for the fuel/oil mix. Hope that helps.
What grade of gasoline should I use?
A shopper on Oct 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I only use non-ethanol gasoline in all of my 2 cycle equipment. Blowers, string trimmers, chainsaw, etc
For you car buffs out there, would this work for drying a car? I use an air compressor now but heard that a compact blower if kept clean could be effective in a quick first pass at removing water after a hand wash. Thoughts?
Graham M on Jul 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I've never tried it, but believe it would work pretty good for that. It definitely moves a lot of air.
How do I mix the oil and gas?
Aimee on Jan 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The RB24EAP can use any mixture ratio between 25:1 and 50:1 of gasoline to 2 cycle oil. That's anywhere between 2.56 oz of oil per gallon of gas and 5.12 oz of oil per gallon of gas.
Can you use Non-ethanol 89 octane fuel on this product
tommy on Jul 12, 2016
