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: /Users/rickwilson/Desktop/Blower Specs.jpg 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?
