Poulan Pro BVM210VS
the good,the bad, the ugly
I've had this blower for 3 years,..1st year ran terrific and again in the spring. Stored as suggested run dry and empty. Fall of the second year nothing but problems flooding,.had carb apart several times. Got a carb kit over the winter and put it in the spring of the 3rd year and it ran great at my place,..went over to help a friend a week later,...no go. Has spark,.no flooding,.tried a squirt of raw gas to see if it would fire,..a no go. New plug,..a no go.
I have no confidence in anything built overseas. From now on if it ain't built in N.America I don't want it.

Very Poor Product Performance
I bought this at Walmart last spring and used it about 3 times (to vacuum leaves off of a pontoon boat). Stored over the winter as per user manual - and it never started this year when I went to use it. New gas and oil and spark plug. Engine has no compression now.

needs to re engineered
i bought this product at walmart last year the only thing that is good is it will start easy when it does start so far i have put 4 spark plugs in it for some reason it keeps fouling them out and yes i did make sure i was useing the correct mix of gas and oil #2 the starter rope has broke twice in order to fix it you have to take the motor out to put a new starter rope in i will never buy another poulan product again ever

This blower worked great the first day I bought and used it. Never started again after that. I exchanged it for a different brand.

Disappointing waste of money
Didn't even last 1 season around the house. Unit continued to loose power throughout the season and became harder and harder to start. Would not start at all by the end of the season. Authorized service center said the cylinder was scored due to the factory settings being too lean. Said they see it often with this manufacturer and it was not worth repairing. Less than a year old and it's already trash.

This blower works with the best. I also own a Poulan Pro saw and this also works well. I will back the Poulan brand and their prices for parts are also good.

Works good when I can get it started. After stopping to empty bag I cant restart it for some time.I would not recommend this one to any one and well not buy another one.
