My strato-charged hand held RedMax blower is cold-blooded first thing in the morning.
However, my RM backpack 8001, which is also strato-charged, has been a beast - and loves to run.
I've not heard much good news about RM's trimmers lately...and this is firsthand from recent local owners, not here on LS. Perhaps their even newer line has improved? IDK.
I truly dig my 2-stroke Stihl FS 80 that replaced my old dependable RM trimmer...but I believe Stihl has phased out 2-stroke trimmers, though I could be wrong.
