That blower looks bad. The dealer didn't have one for me to test out but had two on display with one already having a sold sticker on it. The cost is $550. Any one have any specs on this blower? The dealer didn't have any.
I didn't like the plastic near the choke. It was hard to move it and I have skinny fingers.. I don't care for the pistol throttle either...

Seems Shindiawa is slow on updating their web site. My dealer said there was a comparison between all big blowers and the Shindiawa came out on top. Could of been just sales talk but I really want to see the specs. I might have to sell my EB630.... I'm keeping my 7001 though.

I belive that the eba8510 has around 950cfm I am not sure if it is tubes on, or tubes off. I am assuming it is with tubes. I asked shindaiwa, and they wouldn't say.

I doubt the shind is 950 cfm with the tubes, considering they have a wind speed of 203 I believe. The stihl has a windspeed of 201? i think it is with 718 cfm, the redmax is 201 or 202 mph with 688. It doesn't add up. 950 cfm would have to be like 210 or more windspeed.

I believe, from something I read the the volume at the tube is a "feet staggering 762 cfm".

Also, I would think it would be available in both throttle configurations, just like the EB630/EB630RT.

This is why I would like to see a spec sheet for this blower. The dealer said it is currently the most powerful blower on the market but I wanted to see paper work on it to prove it be they didn't have any. After I left I realized I could of just asked to look at the owners manual...... (duh)

It is not even shown on the website...I know that it is on google, but the pic is little and shows nothing...and to say again, it is impossible for the thing to be over 900cfm at the pipe with that small looking pipe, especially with the given mph...

That's it.... You see the hole on the left in front of the air filter? Thats where you put your finger to put the choke on. The air filter cover has a screw to take off to remove the air filter which is a step up from the EB630. The tube was thicker at the flexible elbow section.

But as I pointed out in the last argument about the blowers. The tube on the redmax is probably more effiecent then the one on the stihl. But I agree with you, the chances of it making 950 cfm at the pipe with that low air speed is slim. Now then if it in deed does make 950 cfm at the housing and the pipe is very effiecent, its possible it will make 760's like someone stated.

A tube that gets smaller and "cones" down like the redmax/shind are going to keep pressure up, thus they don't loose as much CFM. If the still had a good tube it would probably make 750+ cfm but that tube they have doesn't keep pressure up, that tube is better for air speed.

Has anyone owned an 8510 long enough to know if they like it or not yet?

did u see that the 952cfm is without tubes. Without tubes it gives 224mph windspeed. thats insane, probably a little overboard for what we use day to day, and the price is high.:hammerhead:

Yep, rainy day here today, so I went by my dealer and checked it out. We took one from the box and assembled it. Then put some fuel in it and played with it some. It does seem strong but a little pricey. With out the 50 bux coupon I wouldnt even consider one, not at 569.00

Ran the 8000 against the 600 and could not tell the difference in power between the two. They were both blowing against each other with a 5lb brick and neither one could make a gain on the other so I went with the lighter weight of the 600 and saved some money as well. And yes on their own they could each push the brick along the course.

OK....but what about the 8510 which is what this thread is all about....

I tried the 8510 at my dealer yesterday: Good power but very heavy! The dealer weighed it on his UPS scale and it was just over 30 lbs. with the tubes in place and no gas!

Now that's heavy!!

I walked around 15 minutes or so with it on my back, I didnt notice it being that heavy. I did like the way it sat or fit to my back though, it was comfy and felt alot better than my stihl br 340

With the rebates and a lil talk, I think it can be had for $520.00. True that is 50 bux more, but when it comes time for the valve adjustment and any parts I made need, If he puts me at the back of the line and Im with out my blower for a while..........it will cost me way more than 50 bux. I do buy online and have bought 1 trimmer on line. Im mainly going to use this blower for leaves and a back up on the grass route.

I find the 8510 to be more topheavy than my echo 750, however I too like the way it sits on my back. I would not run this blower as an everyday grass route blower, its just too big and powerful.
