i was alsol looking at that package deel is it the one on ebay toro 48" 6 by 10 dovetail trailer and a blower and weed eater? looks like a pretty good deel to me. the blower is a lil on the low side for power but if you only mow it looks good.

For a backpack blower get a RedMax. The EB7001 is a popular model. I currently have an EBZ4800 which is a little smaller than the 7001 and it's been very low maintenance and also very quiet (only 65dbA) the newer model is the EBZ5000Q. I'm getting the EBZ8000 this fall because i need another one for fall cleanups.

I got RedMax trimmers also they're good to

Hope this helps
Amen! I agree 100%

The Kawasaki KTR27 is more popular with homeowners, not a bad unit though.
I would recommend the KGT27 it is more popular with the commercial guys. As far as the blower, it is a small backpack blower pretty much designed for blowing grass and light leaf build up. If you are looking to move more you need a more powerful unit. Hope this helps.

The CFM spec to look at is how much of the CFM shoots out the end of the pipe.

Stihl BR600 712 CFM at the end of the pipe.

Redmax 8000 688 CFM at the end of the pipe.
