The 8000 is sweet, you might not want it for you everyday blower but its great for major cleanups and leaves. You hafta save up 5-6 hundred bucks. This thing isn't a toy it still weighs several lbs. and can do some damage if you arn't carefull.

Hope you enjoy writing the way you are with all the large text, colors, smilies and stuff. You're the only one that does it.

I'm betting 17. Yea the redmax 8000 has a ton of power. I once blew out a storm door glass window with a 7001. single pain glass shetterd into a million pieces. Now when I turn around in the foundation beds I make sure the tube is out or straight up. OOPPPPSSSS

My dealer has had the tubes set up,redmax won hands down they are heavy on the back but they get the job done,the smaller blowers do fine you will get the work done without the strain.

My age is posted in my profile. I didn't enter my information correctly when I signed up and it blocked it out

As far as the weight of the Redmax goes, I will be hiring someone to help me next season. My older brother who is a Police Officer said that he will get me someone reliable. They will be doing the trimming and the blowing and they will also cut the areas with the 21" mower that I can't get with my Timecutter. I'm sure a man can handle the weight of the Redmax no problem even though it is prolly too heavy for me.

Besides the good money, I also like that I get a nice tan and some exercise when I am cutting but I will have to be careful not to get chunky if all I am doing is riding the Timecutter and listening to my iPod next season

Ha ha young ones she is my age!

As long as your not mowing large commercial properties your mower should last 1-2 years+ the reason is it will have plenty of cool down time between mows. Make sure to keep the air filter clean and the oil changed often. Good luck and have a great 2007!
