    you want the best blower get the shindaiwa eb8520.. i have used it against the br600 mag countless times and simply no comparisom.. a little more $$ than the stihl but worth it..much more durable than the stihl..and will out blow the stihl..

    echo pb 770t deserves a good look. takes a few tanks of fuel to loosen up but it is the best blower i ve used!

    graygoose, agreed. Stihl is running on a fast-fading reputation. not to mention the 4mix stuff weighs a ton. who wants to lug that around all day when a redmax is so light weight?

    stihl is falling behind. they have had a ton of problems with the earlier br 600's. the motor is built out otherwise when they introduced the "magnum" they would have juiced it up to get more performance out of it. the engine cannot take a power increase
