This thing will protect you from a bear, just point it at the bear and you'll blow him away. Now if you use a redmax, you'll be lucky if it blows an ant hill apart.

I know sthil seems to be the best, but I am leaning tward the redmax, even though it is more money, I like all my red max handhelds a lot, and plan to run only red max, then again my sthil bg 55 is great too, THe issue is I want the red max, and my helper wants the br 600(for some reason he loves sthil since our bg 55 is so great) and he wants it, but I am the one with the cash, bur for all I know we may wind up with a shiny echo or kaw

Right now you can get the Shindaiwa EB633RT (same as Echo PB-755T) on eBay with FREE shipping for $350. That's a great value in a powerful backpack blower that will last a long time. Here's the link, check it out: http://cgi.ebay.com/Shindaiwa-EB633R...d=p3286.c0.m14
