i was thinking of getting another blower before the fall leaf season, i currently have an echo backpack and was looking to get another backpack. i used my friends shindiawa for a weekend last year and was impressed with the preformance i was wondering how they are with reliability, echo is pretty hard to beat with reliability, however this blower did put out alot more then my echo, my echo is rather old. any recomendations on backpack blowers

Redmax 8000 or 7001, great blowers.

Redmax 8000 or Stihl BR 600, both are excellent machines. The Redmax is a little more powerful than is the BR600, but is hog for gas , harder to start and would be heavier for you,or you're employees.

I have the new Shindaiwa EB8510 4stroke, it outblows my Echo 750. I haven't run it enough to comment about the gas usuage compared to my echo though.

I think my br 600 seized today, oh well it's under warranty from November, and to think it just came out of repair for the fuel line.

Get an Echo PB-751. You won't regret the purchase.

Actually, when I was at the equipment dealer the other day, it looks like Echo came out with a new model called the PB-755. I don't know if they are phasing out the 751's. But I wonder what improvements the PB-755 has compared to the PB-751?

Well, answer my question for me and buy both a PB-751 and a PB-755 and let me know of the differences between them!!:laugh:
