Craftsman 25cc Gas Blower - Plenty Of Power To Get The Job Done

After using an electric leaf blower, I was tired of the hassle of pulling 75' of electrical cord around obstacles.  That's when I started looking at a Craftsman Gas Blower/Vac.  I waited for the end of season specials and really received a great deal.  I purchased a Craftsman Gasoline Powered Blower/vac Model #7179478.  I feel that I hit the deal of the fall season. 

After reading the Operator's Manual, I installed the blower tubes and concentrator nozzle.  Everything went together in tools.  Included in the box was a bottle of Craftsman Professional Synthetic Blend 2-cycle Engine Oil and five (5) Craftsman Lawn and Garden Bags. 

After mixing the oil and gas (regular unleaded) together, I hooked up the shoulder strap.  The beauty of this blower is that it has an "EZ Start" System.  Following the starting instructions, the blower started after three gentle pulls of the starter rope.  This unit has the "Sim-Pul" starting system.  It is not necessary to pull the rope sharply. The Craftsman 25 cc Gas Blower/Vac has a variable speed trigger that allows you to use the power necessary for doing the job. 

This unit even includes vacuum tubes and a bag if you desire to mulch and pick-up the leaves.  Although, my usage will be mainly as a leaf blower, it sure is nice to have the ability to vacuum and mulch.

The Craftsman 25 cc Gas Blower/vac model #7179478 is a much welcomed addition to my existing Craftsman Lawn and Garden products. 

Please read, understand and follow all of the manufacturer's directions and cautions when using this unit.

This Craftsman is on its way back to Sears

My husband needed a new blower and we looked at the new flyer in Sundays paper, he decided on the Craftsman 430-CFM blower/vac.

When he took everything out of the box, and was ready to start the blower it kept on stalling and stalling, finally he got the blower started and the end peice blew right off and someone could have gotten hurt if they were atanding in front of him.He was and still is very upset, he said I have Never ever had a problem with Craftsman until now.

 The blower is heading back to the store, he told me he would not recommend this blower/vac to anyone. When I was watching him pull starting the blower, I knew there was going to be a problem, after 5 or 6 pulls and still nothing, he let it sit and after 20 minutes of both of them cooling down he tryed again and on the third pull it started and also fell apart.

Maybe this is one of those items that managed to get through the quality check point, Craftsman is a very dependable name, we own numerous Craftsman items from tools, Lawn Mowers, Weed Eaters and Snow Blowers and never had a problem.

The Craftsman 25cc blower is at best average

This blower is great at blowing, once you get it started. It takes 3-4 pulls when cold. Vaccuuming is a different animal. To attach the bag you must use a screwdriver to pry open the cover. The cover for the fan should have been engineered with some kind of latch that you don't need tools to open. The bag for vaccuuming is too small and only unzips(for dumping the leaves) about 85 percent of the way. So now you have a place for the leaves to jam up. It mulches well, but plan on dumping the bag every 2 minutes due to the size of the bag. The strap for the bag is poorly designed and mine burned through after ten minutes. It burned through because of the close proximity to the muffler. Heat and nylon don't mix well.

Works much better than I had expected!

This blower works much better than I had expected, both as a blower and a vacuum.  My only complaint is that the muffler gets cherry red and HOT after running it wide open for about 30 minutes.  Otherwise, it's great. 

I would recommend this product to a friend.

very happy with recent purchase of a Craftsman 25 cc Gas blower

I recently needed to replace my gas blower. Limited size lawn (less than 1/4 acre not wooded), but lots of leaves due to heavily wooded areas. So I'm a residential user that needs a blower every weekend during the fall & early winter. Need something light but powerful. The Craftsman 25 cc gas blower has fit the bill. I’m very happy with the purchase - right balance of power and convenience; great value for frequent residential use.  

I would recommend this product to a friend.

The Craftsman 25 cc Gas Blower is light and powerful.

I found the craftsman 25 cc gas blower to be light and powerful. It starts easy and small enough to easily use around the yard. It has plenty of power to move leaves and other items from the grass. It fills the needs i needed in a gas blower.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman 25cc gas blower--perfect little unit

Starts easy.  Blows hard.  A little noisy.  Light enough for a "girl" to handle.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

This Craftsman blower is great!

I bought the Craftsman Leaf Blower, Model# 79478, about a month ago.  I have several properties and they needed the roofs and yards tidied up.  Saw this on sale  and after looking at many other brands in the price range, the Craftsman just had better features for the price.  2 stroke is the only way for me when it comes to blowers, weed wackers and chainsaws, a lot less to go wrong and no way I'm dragging a cord around..

The EZ start system on this blower is great!  No hard pulling, just a nice and easy pull and it's alive.  The first run took 3 or 4 pulls but ever since then it has started on the first pull 9 out of 10 times.  Get your fuel / oil mix right, to much oil and it will foul the plug and not start again until cleaned.

The blower has pretty good performance for it's weight.  The shoulder strap is actually pretty handy if you have a lot of area to do.  I had to try out the mulching kit and I am surpised at how well it condenses the leaves.  I used it to clean my duplex roof instead of blowing all of the debris onto the ground where I would have to pick it up for bagging anyway.  It worked out great, I know I saved some time there.  It even came with bags for the mulched leaves.

All of the attatchments go together very easily with no more than a flathead screw driver required to open the impeller gaurd when changing to the vacuum and mulch setup.

I really like this blower and am glad to add it to my arsenal, I would recommend it to my friends, already have actually.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
