    I have a new Redmax EB7001 and about a 2 year old Echo Handheld. I was doing one of my clean ups the other day and used both of them at the same time.. boy was I impressed on how quick I got the job done. Does anyone else do this?

    I think that it would be hard to do

    The Redmax outflows the echo by so much im surprised it would make a noticable difference.

    Back in the "old days" it wasn't uncommon to see a solo guy using two echo handhelds to blow off the drieways and walks after mowing. Remember the orange echo handheld blowers?

    not that hard, one you just lock the throttle in full, and hte other you simply carry in your hand. I did it myself once with a BR400.

    i use my 10hp little wonder while I have my echo 750 on my back frequently if i'm working around beds, I will just aim the LW where I want the leaves to go and then "feed" it with the backpack. it works pretty good. two people are defintely more effecient though

    That seems like it would work... but, also seems like it would be a lot to concentrate on. Never know, I don't think I could do it for too long, haha.

    We run crews of 2 and both guys run backpack blowers during cleanups....so much more productive than 1 backpack blower.

    i've used 2 handheld blowers before to blow off sidewalks at apartment complexes, works very well.
