poulan pro blower bvm200fe
I purchased this blower on Nov. 10, 2013. It did well for about 2 times using.
This product starts well after it sits on the shelf for awhile. It starts good at first then after running for 10mins or longer it must sit for 30mins to 1hr before it will start again.
I have a 2 yr old polan blower similar model. After rebuilding the carberator and replacing the desolve fuel lines. It is more reliable than the new one. I have figured out that they both do well if the gas tank is only 1/3 full. A full tank and it will not start. Also the new MUST be primed before it will start even after use. You have a problem with the fuel system and carb.

Time saving machine
I was hesitant to buy when i read a lot of poor reviews, but after talking to Lowes employee was convinced the bad reviews were operator shortcomings. Use only 93 octane from one of the big 4 gas companies, synthetic oil, and patience. The blower works like a dream, and the mulcher saves me a ton of time bagging or burning the leaves. Mulched leaves are great for adding organic material to garden, and blueberry bushes.

For BVM200FE-Different Model #
Purchased in Spring of 2013 and used approx. 10-12 times until Dec. of 2013 when it refused to start. Just used the day before and it worked great. Service center said it is a scored cylinder but I think it is a lack of spark (changed Plug). Anyway, not a very reliable piece of equipment, lasting less than 9 months.

Poulan pro blower
Piece of junk. Have purchased two of these and both worked well for about 6 months and then both refused to run. Tried to replace gas filter as suggested but gas tube disintegrates. Fool me twice but not a third time!

Love the variable speed trigger
Overall I love the product. It starts easily and warms up quickly. The trigger operated variable speed is great when you are cleaning out your garage or around fragile plants. It is very simple to "gear down" the volume. I have owned several brands of gas powered blowers and to date have found the Poulan to be very user friendly.
The only issue I have encountered is that the starter rope does not recoil properly. After the unit starts the rope hangs out for some time til the rope will recoil totally into the body.

Nice Blower Vac that is cost effective
I purchased this model (BVM200FE) because it comes with the vacuum kit. I also wanted something light enough you could walk around using it for more than a couple of minutes. This model is great for it's intended use. I have used it this fall at least a dozen times. It starts on the 2nd or 3rd pull, warms up quickly and runs good. It also fits a gutter cleaning "tube" that I have had from Sears. They sell an optional one too... this makes cleaning the leaves out of the gutters a snap. I think this was a good value and it seems to be well designed. The clamp design for the blower tube is a plus over other brands design. I like it! Cheers...
