    Is any one aware of whether companies like Shindaiwa, Stihl or Echo are planning to bring out a backpack blower that compares with or surpasses the Redmax EBZ8000 blower? I did email Shindaiwa with the same question and the rep did say that there is one in the works but she had no idea when it would be available.

    We have a 13HP Honda Powered BillyGoat that is 2.5 times as powerful as the Redmax....

    check it out at stihl.com...712 CFM at tube and 201 mph...wonderful design with everything protected such as fuel lines and choke lever...the 550 just did not do it for me, but we shall see with the 600...it beats the redmax 8000 in cfm at the tube (688)...the redmax design was an afterthought...and that is sad for the price they want for it....
