Can you tell where the BR600 is being used?

Just a little fun. I noticed something peculiar about the wind readings on this weather map. Can you tell where the BR600 is being used?

Hint: One of them is showing 110 knots or 126 MPH.

The BR600 is not being used because it is either at the mechanic, or collecting dust as the Redmax gets the job done.

I like both my sthil and redmax equipment. But I have seven guys who prefer sthil br 600 vs redmax so I'm stuck buying br600 for blowers and redmax for weed wackers

I own a bit of both too and use a lot of stihl equipment, but the BR600 sits in the shop as a backup. But hey, if it works for you, don't fix it...just poking a little fun.

No but I see a lot more homeowners using them and that tells me folks are charging too much for leaf cleanups.

i use my mower for leaf cleanups mostly. the blower does a few things like blow out flower beds or whatever. leaf cleanups i charge just a little more than a regular mowing. takes just a little longer than doing a normal mowing but not that much. i guess it depends on where you live and how many leaves there are. i don't wait until they build up to 2ft high. i just keep mowing after the grass goes dormant at the end of october. i keep mowing every 2 weeks until december. all the leaves have fallen by then here. so basically i mow a yard 2 times in nov and cut all the leaves up. simple. i don't even bag. i just cut them up until they disappear. G6 blades work good for that.
