    OK, I have dealers for Stihl, Redmax, Shindaiwa and Maruyama within 30 miles. I need the best bang for the buck. Here are the specs I've found:

    According to another poster here, the Redmax is really only 685 cfm at the pipe, then it would seem that the Maruyama would be equal to 2 others in velocity, better then 2 others in speed and weight. It has the smallest engine of all and a 5 year warranty.

    Has anyone used the Maruyama BL8100?

    Maruyama looks very good all around. It migh not be the strongest, it is the quietest, longest warrante and cheapest. My dealer selling it for $389.
