I guess, Stihl need to catch up!

I bought my latest snowblower from a new-to-me dealer. I like the people and they carry Redmax, but, are 1-1/2hrs away. If I should have a future need for replacement, I may have to consider Redmax.

I've really like redmax - the only reason I don't sell them is because my Distributor sucks. But I'm a husqvarna dealer and I keep trying to make up my mind to bring in the 560/570/580BTs to replace the shindaiwa blowers. I sell tons of echos and have very little problems out of them. but I like to have a good backup line in case you get a customer who will not consider a Echo...

...and the Husky's have a vastly superior shoulder harness system to the RM version. My 570 doesn't bother me at all when worn for hours on end thanks to the shoulder harness design and cross chest strap.
