I was going to get the 570 nozzle before I ever got my 580BTS but after I got the blower I see no need in it and that was before I was getting full power .Has of now it will blow off wet grass that has been run over by car. Do not see what good it would be .

One thing I noticed about my Redmax 8500 is that the tubes are quite soft. The tubes on my Echo 770 are more rigid. I don't know if that effects the air coming out of the pipe but I don't find the Redmax to be much more powerful, in real world applications, than the Echo.

I ran my Husqvarna 580 (sister of the 8500) next to a 770 and the difference was apparent when doing things like blowing leaves into the brush and woods surrounding the property, but I agree that for most real world applications there isn't much difference...the Echo blows pretty damn hard.

I just bought me a new EBZ8500 to replace a EBZ8000 that I had for 10 years. Somebody wanted my 8000 and I gladly sold it. Not a thing wrong with it and it was a great blower. I got the tube throttle this time. Love it. I also have a Stihl Br600. Great blower and I use it all summer for sidewalks and driveways. It does not have the power of the 8500 which I use for spring and fall cleanups.
