what back pack blower our company uses

my company is Bower landscaping/snowplowing and we use echo blowers, weed eaters, and bush trimmers. we currently run the echo pb 410 back pack blower. which is all steel and aluminum consrtuctoin, compared to mostly plastic blowers today

Redmax. Best blower on the market. 7001 7100 and 8001. Cant beat them. i had the stihl br420, was the biggest one they made at the time. Ok blower but nowhere near as good as the redmax. Tried the stihl 600 at the dealer but I didnt like it as much as the redmax. Echo, redmax, or stihl you really can't go wrong but I just prefer the redmax.

Shindiawa EB-8520

Why hasn't anyone mentioned the Shindiawa 8520? It has 813cfm output, which is well over the 650cfm benchmark that badass blowers are measured at...I haven't found one with more output yet.
