We have just purchased a leaf blower and sucker.
In the blower mode the machine keeps cutting out.
Is there a reason for this ?

Hi Alsn, that is a switch problem or a battery issue. Both of these things can cause this to happen. The way to tell, is if it cuts out, and wont restart right away then its the battery. But if it simply requires you to press the switch and its on a again then it the switch;-)
Since your Leaf blower is so new I would return it for an exchange, this model is very good with few reports of issues like this one. But we all get them from time to time;-)
If for some reason you cant exchange this please let me know as you can purchase parts for it, but I'm sure its still fully covered and shouldn't cost you anything.
I will stick with you until the unit is fixed properly.
But please rate my service thus far to you before closing this page.
It won't cost you anything to further to rate and I will be with you at no additional cost;-)
Thank you Alan and have a great day!
