There all good,you need good dealer support when things go wrong. You cant go wrong with shindaiwa's eb630 or the stihl br600 or the redmax 7001 or the 8001 or the echo750. Take your pic they all blow !!.

Spend some extra cash and get a powerful blower. Helps with productivity, you won't regret it. Lots of blowers out there : Redmax EBZ8001, shindy eb802, stihl br600 ... etc.

Basically Echo, Stihl, and Redmax are all widely used and everybody has their favorite. I've seen a few Tanaka's, but it's really up to personal preference - they will all do a professional job and give you few problems.

well im going to have to say Stihl. I just picked my Br600 up last week and its a beast. It packs a punch and you barely feel it on your back.

Me and my buddy are in business together. I have a 3 yr old Redmax EB7001, he has a 1 yr old Redmax EBZ8001. We do a few dozen lawns and a good amount of leaf jobs. We have never had a single problem with our blowers and they both create an awesome amount of power. Most companies I talk to around me run the same blowers we do. You won't be disappointed in a redmax

The ECHO PB-755T, or ECHO PB-755H, or ECHO PB-620, or ECHO PB-610 all have great power and are the most reliable out there. Plus, they all are very easy to start. Check out these models and pick the one with the weight and features and power that suits you. You won't regret buying any of these models. You need the power to be productive and you need the reliability so you don't have down time.

I have only owned Redmax (EBZ8001) and it is literally a powerhouse blower. I have a friend who has been the business many years and he was "blown away" (sorry for the pun) by this backpack. He's used Stihl and some others and he was quite impressed with it while helping me out on some spring cleanups. I'm sure everyone has their favorites, but I have no reason to buy anything other than Redmax.

I have the echo 755 and a stihl br 600 lirteraly prety close in power and in price. The stihl is a bit more powerful and when I say a bit Its hardly noticable but hte stihl is lighter.

I have echo chain saws and stihl i like echo.

I have had a Stihl BR600 for a year, always starts 2nd pull when cold. First pull when warm. Just bought another one used on ebay. It runs just like the other, 1st or 2nd pull.
