    I own Redmax and they have been great blowers. But I tried the Stihl 600 for one week and loved it. My next blower purchase [in about two weeks] will be the Stihl 600. And by the way at my dealers open house, I talked to the Stihl rep about the backplate. Well worry no more. He showed me the new plate and it is really reenforced and has a new tube also.

    i really like the redmax but when i first started out i bought stihl . 7 years later they still work great, but when and if they do shoot craps i will go with redmax. the biggest down fall to stihl imo is they can be a real b!tch to start sometimes.
