Not impressed with the single-reviewer source cited on Home Depot, I went looking for other reviews.
The Mothership had a series of reviews on the next model made by Sun Joe, so while it’s not a direct comparison, folks were unimpressed in general with the SBJ604E. Vibration was the key concern. Like make-your-hand-numb vibration. Some others did not like the middle-of-the-bag zipper placement. All told, with just 36 reviews, 56% gave 4 or 5 stars, but a whopping 19% gave it a single star (14% more gave it 2 stars). Way too flat a range for my tastes.
Since I really want a new leaf blower, and Woot! got me thinking about one again, I clicked on the “related item” link for the VERY popular and highly rated Toro 51619. For $20 more, you get:
- A unit with 72% 5-star reviews with over 1700 reviews (only 1% 1-star)
- A new unit (not refurbished) with a 1-year warranty (2 years on parts)
- A brand I have both heard of and owned (Toro) vs., well, not
- The leaf bag definitely unzips along the edge (the bottom in this case)
- A metal impeller/shredder compared to the nylon one in the Sun Joe
Think I’ll order the Toro.
Was actually out shopping for a leaf blower earlier today but didn’t find any, in for 1.
