I have never seen a commercial company using the curved ends... in fact I forgot they even made them!

I worked all day yesterday doing leaf clean up with the br400 and br600 and they don't even come close. The comparison just blowing grass is hard to make but blowing leaves is night and day. I used the 400 a few times just to make the comparison. The br600 was worth the money spent IMO. Doesn't everyone take off the curved ends??

On my echo 650 the curved end was nice along fences and flower beds. it did put allot of pull bacwards on the tube and your arm would get tired.

I took the curved end off just to make it more manageable with the shorter tube on the 400 . I agree the curved end could come in handy getting under shrubs but the sheer extra power of the 600 is preferred. Even with earplugs a day of blowing leaves with the br400 could be mind numbing . the br600 is slightly quieter and overall I'm glad I got one . It just took the leaf season to show me how much better it was. Oh did I mention it is SOOOO easy to start

You should buy a 600 to compliment your 400. Within 3 or 4 days of using the 600 you'll be leaving the 400 at home. In fact you'll probably not put the 400 back on after trying the 600 one time.

I leave the echo 750 at home and take the 600

now if the 600 will last as long as my 400s!!! I bought a 400 in 1996 and other than the usual air filter and recoil spring and string replacement it runs great. Single best investment in this business since the move up from homeowner equipment to commercial stuff!! I read all the reviews too before i got a 600 but the success I had with the 400 sent me back to the stihl dealer . Again , time will tell!!!

Things are slowing down now so I have some time to type! Hows the new biz going down in NC RM ? I'll be down in 6 more years to the Charlotte area . I'll have to start over and build a new biz but I''ll have a small retirement to at least work with.

Then again if you buy a redmax 8001 you will never pick up the br600!!!:laugh: :laugh:

I'll get a restart this coming spring. I took the year off to get my new house and property in order first. It's probably a good thing business-wise that I did take a year off. It gave me a opportunity to get the lay of the land as far as potential neighborhoods that I want to try and work in. I knew this was a good area but I really had no idea that they were putting up so many upscale subdivisions. All I really need are 20 to 25 good accounts and I can easily live even without the wife working.
