thats kind of a open ended question...
What do you need it for, what kind of dealers are around you and what is your budget.
I Swear by Stihl and the Br600 is now my Favorite.

and a guy who had been doing this for over 30 years told me if you going to get a blower get one with the red back its the best you can get im guessing he was talking about redmax or shinwida. I want it for commerical use and my home accounts

I use Red Max and absolutely love it. Shindaiwa's are nice too. When buying though I had to take into account that there's a shop just down the street that repairs the Red Max.

I found my leaf blower on eBay, about $200 less than my retailer.

Echo PB-755 or Stihl BR-600 - both do a great job; and I think that they're both around $500. . . (I've used both, but owned neither)
Now I need to buy one. . . lol

The Echo should run you right about $500 - $550 new
The Stihl is probably $100 - $150 more

To answer your question, just go to the top of the page to User CP, click that and once your in there click "Edit Avatar". There are plenty to chose from and I even downloaded my own.

Let us know how you make out on the blower situation.

well my redmax EB7000 ( i think) jumped out of the truck on the interstate and slid off in the grass. went back retrieved it put a new blower hose on it and it is working fine. never had to repair my blower other than this. it actuall did not jump the tailgate fell and it slid out, i was doing about 70 mph. luckily it ended in some tall grass about 15 feet of the interstate. oh by the way i would recommend a redmax.

We use both Redmax and Echo, and personally I think the Echo is more comfortable but the Redmax is more powerful. The Redmax we have are all 7001s and the Echo is a 755 I believe. We have tons of Redmax equipment and it has all been rock-solid stuff. It's just that in my neck of the woods the Redmax dealer is a complete toolbox and I hate giving him my money, so we'll be switching to Echo or Stihl for all our handheld equipment in the future.
