    The Shindaiwa EB630 is a RedMax EB6200. RedMax let them have that in trade for the (Shindaiwa) broom attachment that they are putting on the new Strato Charged units.

    The new redmax eb7000 i think is the most powerful I beleive. A little more so then the shin. I will be getting that for my next blower.

    Homer, I bought it from the used equipment forum, from Smoker. I got the blower and the T260 trimmer for $570 with shipping included. It looks brand new. I used my BR400 today while my wife was using the EB630, felt like I was using an electric Crapsman. I will be selling my BR400 and buying another EB630 later.

    Homer, $460 isn't bad. I think Alamia is up to $430 shipped

    I know this is not the topic of this thread, but you mentioned the new broom on the Red Max strato charged. One of my equipment dealers showed me this piece of equipment the other day and I was not impressed. It's $600 plus and I just didn't think it was worth it. She said I could just buy the attatchment and put it on the end of my Stihl power pruner. I said "Yeah right"

    The majority of my handheld power equipment is Shindaiwa and I think it's the best. However, I did recently buy the RedMax EB 7000 and I love it. This is my first backpack blower so I cannot compare it to the Shindaiwa. I love the EB 7000 but man it's a gas hog.

    I've had the EB480 for 5 years now and love it. Is the 63 heavy like the 480 is, that's why I love the BR400 that I have also. For in and out of the truck BR400, large complex/area Shin EB480- is it the same with the 6300?

    Powerreal...I have a eb480 and a eb630. No comparison!! The 480 is nice and its quiet, but the 630 will blow the pavement off!!!! One thing that is a little different is obviously the throttle, but another thing is gas, wow!!! The 630 is a gas hog. The 480 has been very reliable for three years now, but I love the 630. They weigh pretty much the same, in my opinion. Alamia lists them both at 20lbs.

    How much gas and how much louder is it? How bad is gas consumption and is the gas tank bigger then the 480?

    Mine 630 is new, so maybe it will get better gas (mileage) as time goes on. Its definetly louder than the 480, I think it runs at 77db and the 480 is 68. I could be wrong, if I am, I'm sure someone will correct me, but I really do not feel like going and looking at them right now. The gas tank looks to be about the same size, but if you are worried about gas consumpsion, you are in the wrong business!! :) More power, bring on the gas!!
