However Stihl will eventually build a bigger and better blower, basically just for what you said at the end of your post. Gotta keep up or get left behind.
That's what I said to him, but he said that they felt that blowers have gotten about as powerful as is practical while still being portable on your back, because going larger in power also means going a bit larger in the size of the machine due to needing to have a larger impeller, so they are focusing on better fuel efficiency and ergonomics more than power now. He said if a person needed more than the top tier blowers offer now, they'd be better off with a walk behind model of one brand or another. Kinda makes me wonder if they have one of those coming somewhere in the not too distant future. Wouldn't surprise me one bit.
