Amazon offers a wide selection of handheld/backpack gas blowers, from junk MTDs to Husqvarnas. The obviously have had defective/problem units, but my question is, how would one go about returning one? Amazon doesn't take anything back that's flammable/gasoline related (including most spray paints). What if some schmo buys it and can't get it started?

Maybe they refer you to a local small engine shop?

Given that return (or lack of return) policy, some things are better left buying at a store.

I wouldn't buy stuff like that from Amazon unless it's a tremendous deal. I've bought a half dozen gas powered water pumps from them over the last few years. They get beat up in shipping and Amazon won't take them back even if never gassed up. It wasn't a big deal for me because I got them for 50-75% off but I wouldn't be happy paying close to retail.

I have not found MTD or yardman to be junk in the past - Found them to be GREAT.
PLUS they build most all of the other Premium brands mid tier line.

I have a 25 year old Black&Decker electric blower that is working fine - as long as you don't use the mulch and bag vacuum option.

But, Why would you EVER buy a gasoline engined blower from Amazon when you have a physical store near you?

Why would you buy ANYTHING from Amazon that is carried at a physical store near you?

Do you like paying tens of billions of dollars for unemployed Americans ?

Wake the *&&%^% UP!

I bought a quincy air compressor from Northern a few years ago.. They put it on a pallet,put a box over it and shipped it. No straps to hold it to the pallet! It fell over,rolled around and got severly scratched up.

I was pretty upset.

I called and told them that I wanted another that was not beat up in shipping. I was not asking for a discount as I had paid a fair price for a quality tool and it got damaged in shipping..

They started offering me a discount on it. They ended up refunding me $200 if I would keep.it instead of hassling a return.

So I put the worst side against the wall. I still have it. It is this one.

Several years ago I ordered a power wheels jeep off Amazon for my kids Christmas present. When it finally arrived it was damaged. I called Amazon and they emailed me disposal recommendations and refunded my money. They wouldn't accept it as a return due to the lead acid battery. After I examined the damage I decided to keep it.

I bought a Tanaka extended hedge trimmer off Amazon. Price was better than anything I could find locally. Arrived in one piece and no one sells that brand locally.

That's exactly what happens.

However, I purchase all my small equipment from the local shop, have them service it and start it up. Ensuring it runs correctly. Amazon does not offer much of a discount on name brand professional equipment.


People who count on their fingers should maintain a discreet silence.
