    Redmax 8500 for me. Very powerful.

    The second or third most popular topic on Lawnsite....maybe second to "which is the best z-turn" ubiquitous thread. Respectfully of course, folks gotta learn to use the thread search function.

    Redmax makes great blowers! I have 3 different models from them. One is 8 years old, and still runs like a champ! THey have never missed a beat!

    My Shindaiwa EB802 still runs great after 2 years. Although the straps .... well ... they suck. They fall apart way to quickly. But the blower runs great.

    Yah, but that was "what is the best blower" for yesterday....today is a NEW day. Kind of like the IPhone, there seems to be a new model everyday!

    I just bought a new Redmax EBZ8500 and its an animal. I bought it to replace a stolen EBZ8001 and the 8500 definitely beats it

    I did look at the search links that the guy posted. I am asking some specific questions wanting some specific answers for my situation.
