Br600's are weak, the shindaiwa eb802 is twice the blower the br600 is. I own both and hate the br600.

The Br 600 is the weakest blower we have. Our Redmax has way more power.

Shindaiwa eb802.

MAX AIR SPEED @ NOZZLE 243 mph


Stihl br600

DISPLACEMENT 64.8 cc

The Shindaiwa has a bigger displacement, and alot more air speed from the pipe.

The redmax looks nice, has a ton of cfm.

I'm not one to doubt that there' s more powerful blowers besides the br 600. Most important is what works best for your business.

On paper, the Redmax has more overall blowing power (cc's), but the BR 600 far better designed for balance to weight ratio. You can't beat a Stihl BR 600 Magnum for under 500 bucks.

LOL I still have the Redmax 8001 when it first came out and it still has the same spark plug and air filter. It seems to get even more powerful. I use it for blowing snow off of decks and walkways as well! hands down the Redmax blower was the best investment in my life! I have a few buds that have the BR600 and laugh at them since they are always having problems.

I'm not debating that the br600 is light and comfortable to use all day because it clearly is, in the fall time my guys all want to use the br600 because its smooth and light, it also has the little springs on it to help reduce vibration, but the point stands that its half the blower the shindai eb802 is as far as power goes. hell even my 10 year old shindi eb630's blow harder then the br600.
