I prefer Redmax for everything else.
Shindy merged with echo so echo bout them.

If your looking for power in backpack blowers, it goes tanaka, redmax tied for 1st in power, then echo is second, and shindy and stihl are tied for third, these were compared by each brands most powerfull units.

Troy do you use the husky 150 or 180 blower? If so will the 150 be good enough for leaf removal

bradseabridge......you dont even own a Echo PB-770 ya dumbass!! The Stihl BR-600 is the best by far. I can start it while its on my back with one pull! Its great on gas, lightweight, starts on first pull every time, and has an enormous output of air

I never said I did. I have run one however and I'll be picking mine up in a few weeks before leaves start to fall. Until then my 550 will do fine.

My older echo 650 was a beast then I bought a 750 what a turd the carb is sh!t. But the new 755 wow the weight has been reduced and power is great. The new straps and back rest is great. We have only used it for 3 weeks so far so good.
