My 8 year old leaf blower gave up the ghost this afternoon. I wasn't even doing any yard work. But the handle finally fell off completely. It had been taped together for years. When I looked it over, I could see at least three different types of tape, which means on at least three different occasions I had to stop working and try to patch this thing back together.
So after 10 minutes in the rain, throwing a brick at our broken blower, we officially busted it up. Need proof?
