    How is the power on the blower? I was considering the 750 but my dealer started carrying redmax so I got the 8001 instead.

    The KBR750 has lots of power, it blew my Husky 145 doors off. It is pushing 4.6 hp and 800 cfms. It will easily blow leaves and debris out of bushes and beds. It has significantly cut down my blow time on all of my properites. I have been very happy with it so far. I don't think its as ergonomically designed as the Redmax blowers, but the Kaw engines are incredible. The only complaint I have is that the hook at the end of the straps comes off at the bottom every now and then, but I sling the blower off and on. Some jerk stole my old blower so I need an extra/back up, so I am looking to try a Redmax 8001 too because of the great reviews I've read on this site, 25 lbs blowers don't bother me.

    Lesco-512 for the Kaw handhelds, Mustang Equipment for Scag mowers and John Solora for Snapper 21" and handhelds. I love the husqvanra handhelds but the closest thing to me is Northern tool and they suck. I tried the Husqvana dealer in Boerne, they were good, but its just too far from me. What about you?

    I'm near 410 and I-10 on the NW side of town. I bought a Shind 242 from Menco, but returned it because it was underpowered IMO. I would like to try a 260/261 or maybe even 270. What Shindaiwas do you run?

    I live in the same area off of fred road...I run 3 shindaiwa t270 the older ones with the tickler carbs....they are great and alot of power. I ran t231s when I first got in but no balls...for blowers I run redmaxs eb7001s they are great for what I do...I had bought a used ebz8001 but it was just to big and heavy even for me...I just didnt like it so i went with the 7001s. So what areas do you work in??

    I must live under a rock, because I never seen any Kawi power equipment before. Seen engines but not trimmers and blowers?

    Been real happy with them so far. KGT27a trimmers power to weight ration is amazing. 10.2 lbs and 1.5 hp. I am going to pick up one more before the years up.

    Thats an impressive equipment list for a homeowner.:)
