    There all good,you need good dealer support when things go wrong. You cant go wrong with shindaiwa's eb630 or the stihl br600 or the redmax 7001 or the 8001 or the echo750. Take your pic they all blow !!.

    Spend some extra cash and get a powerful blower. Helps with productivity, you won't regret it. Lots of blowers out there : Redmax EBZ8001, shindy eb802, stihl br600 ... etc.

    That's a good one :laugh:. What will you be doing? / need for which jobs?

    Basically Echo, Stihl, and Redmax are all widely used and everybody has their favorite. I've seen a few Tanaka's, but it's really up to personal preference - they will all do a professional job and give you few problems.
