I just bought the 530 CFM leaf blower. I notice that there is a 1-2 second delay in starting when I pull the trigger to start, and a similar delay when I release the trigger to stop. Is this expected, or is this a problem?
Ruth, as everyone said, that sounds about normal. There's a delay there to protect the motor from sudden start ups and stops. It's just a safety mechanism to avoid putting a ton of strain on the motor at the first second of operation.
