Get a bigger one. $99 for a useless blower is $99 wasted. It is the cfm that is important.

For the cheapest bp, Husqvarna 150Bt which is the same as RedMax EBZ5100 51cc for $299 is about as good as it get for the price.

If you want to be cheap, get a hand held. They get more power for the same size engine. Get as large an engine as possible. Husqvarna 125 is 28cc( I think ). Maruyama BL3100 is 30cc. Both are either under or about $200.

Can one ever have too many Jap maples!!?? :o)

If you want to stick with natives, some other choices might be summersweet clethra, kalmia (mine stays 3.5 X 3.5 in the sun), hypericum, physocarpus, ilex glabra, calycanthus, itea, potentilla.
If you choose clethra, itea or physocarpus, you would need to make sure to purchase one of the more compact varieties.
