A nice upgrade to the PB-413 is the PB-651, though I have used both and have to say there is not a ton of difference, but the PB-775; -whew- that is one powerful blower. What's wrong with your 413?

I've had a 620 and currently use a 755. 755 is much stronger and built much better imo. Definatly worth the extra $80 it cost.

I started out with the pb403 and a Redmax eb6200. I still use the 403 sometimes but have since expanded to an echo 650 and Redmax ebz7001.

Echo 755, Stihl BR-600 and Redmax 8001 are the three best (no particular order here).
If you don't need the full power, don't press that trigger too much, and if you need the power, it's right there for you to use.

Echo PB230s, PB403s and PB755s work for me. The handhelds are great for grab and go on mowing crew and the 403s work good for larger areas like parking lots and large walks on commercial accounts but for all out power when it comes to leaves nothing beats the 755s.
