I went to see my Stihl dealer today, my Stihl hedge trimmer was not running properly and I was tired of messing with it. So the mechanic who it also the manager came out to the truck and saw my Red Max eb7001 backpack blower and had a fit. He asked me what the hell was I thinking buying anything but a Stihl? I told him that it can blow a Stihl out of the water, I think that may be the end of my top notch service from them! He was really mad about this! It kind of ticked me off because I have bought almost all my small stuff from them and now he gets pissed over 1 blower!
