Blower Upgrade

I am considering upgrading my backpack blower in the Spring. I'm an Echo fan so I am leaning toward the new PB750. Does anyone have a better suggesstion? Thanks, Jim

Get the Redmax 7001 or 8000. You will not be disappointed. Been using a 7001 for over a year now and it a lot better than the Stihl's and Echo's that I use to run IMO.

Brianj do you have an email address for Redmaxman? I'd like to get a price on an EB7001.

Redmaxman if you see this, please email the price to likestomow@yahoo.com

RM8000 OutBlows the 750....Fairly Significantly.

I traded my echo 403 today for a 650. Man, what a difference! Done a leaf cleanup in over half the time. I too wanted a redmax but the closest dealer is 65 miles away and I have a echo dealer close by and have been pleased with their products. My 403 was rated at 330 and the 650 was 620 cfm at the pipe.

I bought a Redmax EBZ8000 early in the fall. All I can say is wow!!! I thought my EB7000 was awsome. The 8000 has to put out at least 25% more air. I feel the 8000 was worth every penny of the $530 dollars I paid for it!!!!
