I have to agree Red Max 8000 series are my only choice when it comes to back pack blower.

Wow, another BP thread. I picked up my Echo PB755T yesterday. I can't say how it performs with wet leaves yet, but it'll blow a brick across a driveway and dry off my patio furnature.

It runs strong, it's powerful. I can't give anything more than that as I've only had it a day.

Either Redmax8001 or Stihl BR 600 I have both cant beat the comfort of the Stihl and ease of starting but the8001 has a little more power but its only better in fall cleanups

Shindaiwa eb630 or redmax eb7001. Both are not made anymore but are awsome. Redmax makes the clyinders for the shiny 630. So they are the same blower basically. Can't go wrong with either if you can find them.

The 8000 model is no longer in production according to my dealer. I have the 8001 and its great so far. Many on here like the BR600 Stihl

Ughh, I normally don't do this but I do believe they still make the eb7001. I am pretty sure I just saw it at my dealer.

I am now kicking myself for correcting someone...

I think your right about the 7001. Why would you want to kick yourself for correcting someones information?

I agree 100%

My older eb7001 was running rougher and was loosing power. So I put a new plug in it cleaned the air filter and pulled out the spark arrestor and bam! It runs like new. I haven't done any maintenence on it in close to two years.

Our EB630's are 3 years old still running strong, and have been/had minor problems, one throttle cable, one has the air filter cover is held on with electrical tape, the padded cover the rivets have worn off, now held on with nylon ties etc these things run like a raped ape, and show no signs of loosing power. These Eb630's I have have paid fore themselves many times over, I'm kinda wishing I would have purchased some newer EB630's now if their becoming hard to find, but when you own the Eb630's theirs really no more reason to be in the market/looking for a blower

I believe you can still get them, but probably not for very long. However, they're being replaced by the EB802, which have a Shindaiwa-built 2-cycle engine, instead of the Zenoah engine like the EB630's have.
