like they're very well padded compared to most other's I've seen, which is kind of surprising since this thing weighs nearly 30 pounds. So if this one of the Redmax blowers? If so what model? I can't find any reviews of it anywhere. I know it replaced the 380, but what are the differences, if any? I was leaning toward the Shindaiwa EB 802 but this thing got my attention. I have 2 older EB 630s that still run fine but I'm looking for one blower that just has pure brute force for those tough cleanup condtions.
It is a read 8500. I too looked at it, it also has a strap across the chest. It feels light than my 380bts. The 580 puts out over a 1000 cfm, the thing is a monster. I may get one in a week or two.
