Comment:
my model has a turn knob to turn it on and off and control the blowing power. It is located in a horrible spot, and you can't do a quick turn on turn off it you have it on all the way. WHen I am working I stop and start many times. This blower does really well while it is on, but it is a total pain to keep turning it on and then off and on and off. I am sorry I got it just over this.
