Red max 8500z or echo 770. Redmax is best. Stop with the atihl comments, it is lackluster at best.

It's all based on opinion. I may have X and swear by it but someone may Z and think its the best thing since slice bread.

Bought a Stihl %%0 last year and have cut my cleanup time from 7 hrs to less than one. No issues with it.

I use Echo handhelds and back packs. When I buy new equipment Im going with redmax. Ive heard from people (on a forum I used to belong to) and they have great things to say about them. I have a redmax string trimmer that I usually use as a back up, I carry a couple, my Echo and the Redmax. The Redmax is older but it is a beast. Unreal torque. They seem to be a quality product.

Go to their site and punch in your location into their dealer locator. You may have one very close to you that you never knew about.

Should I get the Redmax 8500 or 7500 for doing leaves with...? My dealer just took on Redmax so I want something to go with my Echo 770 for leaves... I have a Stihl 600 but is not as productive as the 770... So trying to decide on which blower to get just for cleanup and leaves only..

IMO there's no better than the 580 or 8500. Most powerful they make. If a more powerful one comes out I'd buy it. More power is less time and more money. Pays for itself in no time.
