Well constructed and I was surprised how quiet it is as compared to other leaf blowers - none of that typical high pitched ear splitting whine. Variable speed is a plus in controlling movement of the leaves. Most of the time I have the blower set at 3 (out of 6). When I collect a big pile or if the leaves are really wet then I change the setting to 5 or 6. My blower came with two 5 amp batteries and I get at least a half hour of use from them and more at the 3 speed setting.
