    I been hearing a lot about the Redmax 7001 shocking some people, but what about the echo lineup like the BP 650 or higher backpack models.

    Static electricity build up from air moving through the hose of any blower can cause a "small" charge. Holding the hose all the time will ground you. The shock (what the wimps call it :dizzy: ) is usually from letting go of the hose handle for a minute and then adjusting the throttle before grabbing the hose again.
