They said it is almost as strong as a Redmax 8000 and "Thougt I would give a quick update! blower has run flawless easy on gas good power and is light! I will be buying more! Very Happy!" "I have at least 20 tanks run through mine and it has been fantastic! The other thing I like is the choke on it! Unlike the redmax which drops on while using it the dolmar is choked the oposit way and does not do this! Very Nice and nice to see someone was thinking on that one!" I got the Dolmar PB-7601.4 a min. a go on ebay for $350 so I will see what it will do and I may still get the Husqvarna 580bts if the price is real good .
