I posted a review here last summer where I tested the Echo 770, Stihl BR600M and the RM 8500. The Echo is a fine blower and I came close to buying one, but I decided on the Husky 570 (which is the same blower as the Red Max 7500, but has better shoulder harness and air box access). Several guys have reported the the Echo 770 runs too hot, while others haven't had any trouble.

I like the Shindy 802 as well, and it is an excellent blower but it doesn't blow quite as hard or as fast as the Husky 570/RM 7500 unless it is modified, which of course can be done with those two as well, and since it is a larger displacement engine, it will use more fuel to do the same thing.
