Just a little fun. I noticed something peculiar about the wind readings on this weather map. Can you tell where the BR600 is being used? :laugh:

Hint: One of them is showing 110 knots or 126 MPH.

The BR600 is not being used because it is either at the mechanic, or collecting dust as the Redmax gets the job done.

I like both my sthil and redmax equipment. But I have seven guys who prefer sthil br 600 vs redmax so I'm stuck buying br600 for blowers and redmax for weed wackers

I own a bit of both too and use a lot of stihl equipment, but the BR600 sits in the shop as a backup. But hey, if it works for you, don't fix it...just poking a little fun.

No but I see a lot more homeowners using them and that tells me folks are charging too much for leaf cleanups.

i use my mower for leaf cleanups mostly. the blower does a few things like blow out flower beds or whatever. leaf cleanups i charge just a little more than a regular mowing. takes just a little longer than doing a normal mowing but not that much. i guess it depends on where you live and how many leaves there are. i don't wait until they build up to 2ft high. i just keep mowing after the grass goes dormant at the end of october. i keep mowing every 2 weeks until december. all the leaves have fallen by then here. so basically i mow a yard 2 times in nov and cut all the leaves up. simple. i don't even bag. i just cut them up until they disappear. G6 blades work good for that.

The new redmax 8500 sucks a big one. Its uncomfortable and the blower tube is too stiff. While the br600's dont have near the power, unless you are blowing wet leaves constantly it doesnt make any sense. The br is lighter, rediculously comfortable and easy to start as well.

I demoed a stihl br 600 vs the redmax 8500. blew at the same pile of leaves, and there is a lot of difference. redmax deffinately won. and im religious about stihl.

Don't get me wrong...I love EB630 blowers...very reliable/long lasting and they do scour pretty well, but they don't blow away the BR600 let alone the the Redmax 8500. The Redmax puts out 50% more air than the EB630...that's pretty substantial, as in not even close.
