Bought a br600 blower, after 2 months it quit running, i suspected a carburetor. Took it in and a month later was told I owed $170.00, so I asked about warranty.
I was told it got something in the carburetor. After asking why the air filter and fuel filter would not do their job. They blamed it on user error. I suspect something from manufacturing finally clogged the carburetor.
They have never warrantied any of our stihl products. DO NOT BUY!
Bolens - Dissatisfied customer
by SympatheticZebu194 #1531155
bought new from Lowe's last summer used 5 times - immediately had starting problems - now this year it wont run at all - had small amount of fuel in with stabilizer for the winter - drained all gas out 3 weeks ago - put new gas mixture in and tried to start with no results - installed new plug no results - drained fuel tank and cleaned, blew out both lines going to carburetor & filter (lines disconnected) - followed starting directions doesn't work
Bolens - LEAF BLOWER IS CRAP

Hardly used and is ready for the garbage.....if I can't get it replaced. Was fine at first but then started to stall if you let go of the trigger.
Then it won't restart.
Had it looked at and was told that it wasn't worth it. Wish I had read reviews on it before buying because the majority of reviewers have had the same problem as I am having.
Bolens - Did not work right out of the box.

Brand new but will not start right out of the box. $80 boat anchor.
Should have known better than to buy MTD/Bolens product but went for price.
First mistake was buying MTD product, Second mistake was waiting 60 days to try and use it. Now I can't even return it to Lowes. Bolens model 735380 gas blower by MTD.

My experience is like all the rest Bolens leaf blower BL 125. LEAF BLOWER WITH VERY LITTLE USE IS FUEL STARVED AND WONT STAY RUNNING. PURCHASED at LOWES . MTD how many people get screwed until you step up to the plate and fix these units or do a recall. I am not made...

I bought this blower vac about 2 years ago. I noticed the on/off switch was difficult to switch on/off. No problem as it still worked. Recently it broke. I tried to open it and look at the switch contacts. It was very hard to open, so I took it to a local lawn mower...
Bolens - Stopped suddenly - can't restart

About 3 months ownership, Bolens BL125 just quit. I can't seem to find what's wrong.
Bolens - BL 125 dying at six months
by PissedConsumer1450033 #1450033
Bought a Bolens 125 leaf blower at Lowes at end of summer 2018. Less than 6 months old.
It was hard to start out of the box. Now it is still difficult to start and will only run a short time and die.
