I have the smaller one (650) and I love it. Feels like it has more power than it is rated at.

I bought the 750 a couple of weeks ago. Really like it. Comfy on the back and blows just as good as the BR600. Very smooth running for a 2 cycle engine.

I honestly didnt even know kawasaki carried handhelds until some of our customers started requesting them. Honestly we havent had any issue with the kawa stuff and fixin to start my third season with them, actually now really thinking about it, no carb stuff or coils at all yet...... I wish the trimmer heads were a little easier to learn to take apart like the redmax, but other than that been very happy with them. I think they are not advertised and pushed enough as a formidle handheld brand. If they would start spitting saws out i would just be 100% kawa here, so far kawa has been the easiest for us to get along with as a dealer...

Hey on the trimmers can you switch attatchments out on the Kawi's down at the head with the 2 torx screws like on the Stihl's rather than buying the Kombi type system?

Never seen a 700. Are you talking about the 750? They have been on sale here all fall long, and I came close to buying one. They look like great blowers and have very good specs.

I learned a long time ago if I want uncompromised power then I get the top of the line...
And because I am done trying to take over someone else's problems, lets just make it brand spanking new too.
In that sense you will want to look into saving yourself around $500...

If you can swing it right now you only need $440, special deal and free shipping too...

This way we are done, through playing around:

I mean you just can't lose.
