    Can I get a backpack blower for under $300.00? If so, what's the best make and model number?

    Thanks,

  2. Sure you can. It's going to be junk but you can get it. Whatever you decide to buy, make sure you look at the label. If it says made in America stay away from it. If it ain't a honda it is junk.
    Sad but true. Only the less informed would even buy a America made truck.

    For another $100 bucks, you can get a Stihl....I've used my BR400 for 4 years, 5 days a week, including winter, and it still looks and runs like new...

    I've got a brochure that advertises the Stihl Br-420 for $399.

    I got my Echo PB-650 for $450. Best decision I've made in a while.

    Try the Shindaiwa eb630 its a few lbs lighter than the redmax an just as much power. Marks Mowing Service Better yet do a search and read a few hours on the different brands.

    Sthil BR320 sells for 299.00 here. I think it has been replaced with the new model (340), but its basically the same machine. I like mine, but I don't need a blower as much as some. I basically use it blow the driveway's and such.

    Stihl BR420C blower would be an excellent choice.

    I would also suggest to spend a little extra and get the stihl br420. You will be glad you did if you deal with many leaves.
