I just bought a BR-550 last week. I was hoping to get a RedMax 8001 but NO ONE in my area carries RedMax. I have to tell you I am very happy with it. It is way stronger and more comfortable than the 340 & 420's I've used and much quieter. (not as quiet as the BR-500)
This is the 3rd piece of 4mix equipment I've purchased and I am sold on the new technology. I have had zero problems with any of them. :)

I wouldn't take a 4 mix if you gave it to me! Adjust the valves every 100 hours or so?? I think not!

I am staying with the quality 2 cycle euqipment as they are lighter with way less maintenance and use less gas.

The RedMax 8000 and the Echo PB-651 out blow the BR 550 by a long shot!

You sound just like....Legacy. Is that you Legacy? Still trying to sell Redmax and Echo?

Don't worry... I don't think anyone will be giving you a 4-mix.

Oh...BTW. You need to check the spelling on your user name. Spirit lanwcare?

Who or what the f*** is Legacy? What have you been drinking/smoking?

For your information (not that it's any of your business) I have used Stihl products for years. (BR-400/420C, FS-85, FC-85 etc.)

I just don't like the new 4 mix stuff. I'm sorry that I don't have the same views/opinions as you! My bad.

would it be breaking a pattent law if you had someone machine a rack for you. It doesn't look like it would be that difficult.
