Hi all-

I'm currently a homeowner in need of a backpack blower. The two models I'm considering are the:

Echo 403T
Redmax EBZ5000

which one is more reliable, and easier to start, ect.
It is between these two blowers only.

I like Echo equipment so I would go with the 403 Echo. It really depends on which you like best and which dealer is the best. That just my opinion.

Me and my friend use a RedMaxx blower....and i would NEVER go to another blower just because it's so powerful and its reliable....

Just my opinion....

I have heard too many good things about Redmax, so Redmax

don't waste your time on Echo, it's all junk...trimmers, blowers, just not what they used to be. RedMax litterally blows them out of the water

I really like the echos they had a recoil problem they seem to have gotten fixed finally.

BTW the recoils were exchanged at no charge I had two of them break.

In my experience with Echoe Blowers and chainsaws I came to find out that something always seems to break on them and they never hold up as long as stilh ... never heard anything bad about a redmax only great reviews but never used one either always used stihl and never had a problem starting them or with there power... Can say that echo blow pretty good that is one thing I like about them ....c

RedMax - commercial grade that stands up to hours of heavy usage !

Redmax over Echo any day. Stihl is also good equipment. I don't care much for Echo.
