And, cheaper than a new battery for my Bosch cordless drill.

Wow BB, all the inconvenience and lack of power of electric combined with the dirtiness and unreliability of a 2 stroke. Sounds like the perfect compromise!
Heck if they were all gas powered they would be two strokes anyway. And the lil blue HF sucker only smokes on start up.
With only one unreliable engine to mess with. As to power, as long as the leaves leave, that is all the power I am looking for. I actually rake the piles and piles out of the yard surrounded by trees because I hate all leaf blowers. Mine and my neighbor's included.
And Ryobi Lithium.. So first start I squirted a little oil in the spark plug hole and carburetor to prevent dry start from sitting on shelf, smokes a bit but will clear...
Ran some "Night Ops" with mine last night. 1 500W halogen and my HF genny let me split fore a couple more hours after it got dark @ 4:30.
Mine was delivered yesterday. Can't wait to try it out!
I get a bunch of stuff from HF. I wouldn't use it in a proff situation but for the 3x a year I need whatever tool it's great and usually cheaper than renting.
Usually if you use a coupon or code, it's not applicable to generators...... You did good...
The HF circular in this months Road&Track has the coupon code to get this thing for $89 - code 15438216, valid through next April.
At that price its tempting to get one as a backup for the big generator!
That's online? You still have to pay for shipping?
I think they chared me $7 for shipping, It costs me that much to drive there.
online code or you can cut out the coupon from the circular and use it in store.
