    Im looking @ Echo model 46 $350.00 @ Home Depot 1 yr. com. guarentee. It weights 23#'s which is more than most other BP. Redmax same blower is 369.00 but I think it is better built .

    I can only sing the praises of the sthil bp-400. there are better blowers out there according to reports but there ween't when I bought, which was about 5 years ago.

    5 years. and no real complaints.... if I were you, I'd check out the bp-400.

    the bottomline...power is everything. go for it!;)
