Can you tell where the BR600 is being used?

    The new redmax 8500 sucks a big one. Its uncomfortable and the blower tube is too stiff. While the br600's dont have near the power, unless you are blowing wet leaves constantly it doesnt make any sense. The br is lighter, rediculously comfortable and easy to start as well.

    I demoed a stihl br 600 vs the redmax 8500. blew at the same pile of leaves, and there is a lot of difference. redmax deffinately won. and im religious about stihl.

    Don't get me wrong...I love EB630 blowers...very reliable/long lasting and they do scour pretty well, but they don't blow away the BR600 let alone the the Redmax 8500. The Redmax puts out 50% more air than the EB630...that's pretty substantial, as in not even close.
