Anyone here own a Redmax EB7001? I am going to be buying one and would like to know if it's powerful and does a good job cleaning up leaves, sand and other spring and fall clean up debris.
Thanks

You will LOVE IT! Great power. Go to your dealer, he should have one you can demo there. Also the 8000 blower is out now. It has 25% more cfm. It's unbelievable. Both are a great buy.

Does anyone think there is a big difference in the EB7001 and EBZ7001 models?

I assume the EBZ is the newer strato-charged.. and costs a little more.

I have always been pleased with the EB7001 models.. just curious if anyone has experience with both.


Thanks.. hate to dig up an old thread but it came up in the search.

There's an EBZ7001 now? I have a EB7001 and couldn't imagine needing anymore power out of a backpack than it gives...I love it, especially in the fall! I love my Red Max equipment!:usflag:

Yea I totally agree.. I have been very pleased with all the redmax equipment I have owned over the years.

I was looking at ordering eb7001 from mowparts and I saw the 2 different models (didn't know about the ebz until then) It's a $30 difference so it's not much, but I always buy hands on from my local dealer.. just like to know I got the most for my $$ :) and it's hard to pass up a good deal.

Others keep telling me to get the ebz8001 instead but I think it's too heavy for normal GA spring/summertime use.
I will probably grab one of those next fall though.. great for leaves.

I agree i get plenty of power out of my EB7001. I couldn't justify 5 more pounds on my back for 100 or so more CFM.

My Eb7001 has served me well. I bought it used so I have had to replace a few things on it, but when the sucker is runnin.......man........

I recomend gaining 10 pounds before using one....Unless you enjoy being knocked on your back.....:)

That was the best blower on the market a few years ago. 8001 is top of the line now for red max. You'll find that the 7001 will handle anything you need it too. Good choice

So what would you guys do/recommend.
I'm in the market for a new blower and I definitely want another 7001.

Would you get the EB7001 (http://catalog.redmax.com/MyCart/ProductDetails/27/EB7001-RH_Backpack_Blower.aspx) or the EBZ7001 (http://catalog.redmax.com/MyCart/ProductDetails/70/EBZ7001-RH_Backpack_Blower.aspx) though?

My weedeaters are strato-charged but I can't say I could tell a difference from the older 2500 models.

Like I said.. difference is $30. and seems specs are a little higher from website.

I'm probably just over analyzing this.. but just wanted some of your thoughts before I pull the trigger.

I'm running the EBZ8001's.

That said, I'm going to recommend the EBZ7001.
For the extra $30 you get the unit RedMax will probably 'phase to'.

Plus the 'Z' denotes Strato-Charged... which translates to FUEL EFFICENCY
And less POLLUTION INHALED.

You'll save the extra $30 right back in fuel savings.
89/93 octane and mix oil costs more than we often think about.

Very good points!

..and fuel is definitely a big consideration for us all in this industry.. thanks

I have the EBZ7001 so far i can't complain about it at all. Good price and made my clean ups very fast, and not to heavy on the back.

Awesome blower! Does a really superb job when you let it idle to blow debris out of mulch beds.

8000 is great but is a beast to haul on your back.

I'd reccomend the EBZ7001. Best all-around backpack blower for size, weight, price and power. Its my main blower right now. I also have the large 8000 which is a beast and the tiny 2600 which is perfect for the littles stuff where raking or sweeping won't do the job best.

For those that have used both, is the EBZ7001 heavier than the EB7001?

Some bastard stole my EB7001 over the weekend, so I'll be shopping for a new one :mad:

Well I run the 8001's but I'm familiar with the Z7001.
Here are the ins and outs...

First off, it's a different engine.
It's larger cc than the 7001.
The Z is also Strato-Charged, so it's cleaner burning and also more fuel efficient.
Obviously the Z a step up in power from the 7001 too.

The trade-off is 2 pounds more weight.

We were down to just my old Stihl BR400, so I went over to the shop and put a carb, new fuel tank, lines, filter and plug in my 7 year-old Shindaiwa EB630 last night. I forgot why I liked that machine so much. I think it's at least 2 pounds lighter than the EB7001 was, and honestly seems to preform better. But I'm sure I'll end up with another Redmax because of dealer issues with Shindaiwa.

Just picked up an EBZ-7001 today for the house. Had an old piece of s*** Ryobi that couldn't blow leaves if it's life depended on it. The 7001 has a great CFM and high mph stream. It allowed me to rip through layers of thick pine needles in the backyard on a raised berm (I have 18 pine trees there). Cleanup of those needles in the fall would take hours with a rake and garbage bags. Got it done in 15 minutes today with the new blower.
