    Remember its only money, and you'll soon be paid back because of its efficiency.

    No question I would recommend spending the extra money and buying a RedMax EBZ8500. It's $600 dollars, but I made the mistake of buying the $300 blower and until I got the redmax I thought it was a good blower. The way I see it, spend the money once and be done with upgrading. Out of all the equipment I've had the gap between mid grade and top of the line is the largest with this blower.

    Redmax 8500z, most powerful.

    Get the BR600 magnum. Plenty of power and most comfortable backpack blower there is.

    I have 2 sthil br600. it works good and is a little lighter than the others. I have had 1 for 1 year and just bought the other one last fall. I like it, its powerful, I don't have experience with any other commercial back pack blower.
    good luck

    Excellent advice. Spend it once. The extra $200-$300 can pay for itself in time saved in just a cleanup or 2.

    If you know that you are going to do this, good advice. this has been my practice. Rather buy something good, instead of buying something cheap, then upgrading (more money).
    good luck
