I would strongly discourage anyone from buying one of these.
If you notice the intake, it will rub against your pants. If you're wearing cargo shorts or workout shorts, it sucks the material against the grill, restricting airflow and is a PITA. It doesn't pull your shorts into the fan but if you're right handed and use this POS or any variation of it....Ryobi, etc., then it will annoy the h.e.l.l. out of you.
Also, any of these with a horizontally mounted engine have a gyroscopic effect and pointing the blower nozzle left and right is not as easy as one made that has a vertical shaft.
Craftsman makes a vertical shaft one that is so much better than these.
I've had both and trust me, I'd go with the Craftsman brand any day of the week and twice on Sunday over this type.
Save your cash for another type, right-handed people!
