    Hey guy's right now I've got a Redmax EB4401 and want to upgrade. Ive had in the bast a Stihl 400 and the small Redmax seems to have about the same power. I'm wondering if the 8000 is worth the extra $60 and the extra weight? The one thing I don't like with the Redmax is the static shock, even through the gloves. Will my socks be blown off with either the 7001 or the 8000 after using the 4401 for a while?? Thanks for the feedback :waving:

    Also, I'm sold on Redmax so Please, no other suggestion on other brands! :nono:

    You will love either one! I have both and actually perfer the 7000 better. My employess though seem to like the 8000's. Both are great units besides a couple of flaws with the on off switches and choke levers.

    The 7001 is a great machine! I have demoed them and can't wait to get 1!! :drinkup: But for now my 6200 will suffice..............

    I got my Red Max EB7001 last fall, and I LOVE it!!! It isn't too heavy, and has tons of power! The difference in power between my new EB7001 and my Stihl BR320 is like night and day! I would very highly recommend a EB7001!!! :waving: :cool:

    I have a 7001, and it is awsome, makes my 4400's feel like hand blowers. Since you already have a 4401 I'd just go for the 8000.

    I have a Stihl br400,Redmax 7000.Redmax 8000

    The stihl is like wearing a jacket

    The 7000 gets heavy after a 30 min. run

    The 8000 gets heavy after 15 mins.

    Unless your blowing tons of leaves.....Save your $60 and
    go 7001.It will blow anything in your path that's not tied down. Almost :)

    I have two 7001 one 6200 one 7000.

    Unless you do clean-ups pricing by the job the 8000 to me would be a waste of gas
