I have personally tested RedMax strongest blower and Stihl strongest blower and have found out that the Stihl is the way to go. Now the price my very a little but not a whole lot, now with the Stihl you get much better gas. The RedMax seemed to suck more gas than the Stihl. Also stood about 8 feet away from two identical piles of leaves with both blowers and the Stihl did much much better. I think people think that just becasue the RedMax is louder means it must be more powerful.. but their wrong. Dont believe me try it for yourself. I'm a STIHL MAN ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also too I forgot to add that RedMax is heavier than Stihl and it doesn't rest on your back as comfortable as the Stihl does...
