Depends on the amount you really want to spend. You can't go wrong w/ either Stihl or Redmax backpack blowers.

I'll have to 2nd the Echo pb-403. I can't remember the last time I even had to use full throttle (even with wet grass and leaves). But like others have said, you pretty much can't go wrong with any of the above. I've heard nothing but positives about Stihl, Redmax, and Echo.
