I did not know they were out just yet. I have been waiting on them to possibly replace another redmax.

If you are looking for a new blower, I recommend the Shindaiwa 802RT. 211 MPH and 762 CFMs. I also have a 755H. The shindy is much lighter and way more comfortable. I can only imagine the 770 will be even heavier than my 755.

Where does the extra power come from? It has the same size engine as the 755 but I guess with the new design it is almost 2 pounds lighter. It looks like it will fit closer to your back so that will probably make it feel even lighter. I still wonder if they just fudged with the CFM's because on most blowers the more CFM's the bigger the engine size. It also makes me wonder since they are in bed with Shindaiwa if this is a new offspring of new parents.
