I am new to this site and I have heard many say that they love their redmax blowers. I have a husqvarna chain saw, trimmer, and riding mower. The guy that I bought it from is very good at service and price. I know that their blowers have not been anything to write about in the past. I noticed their new models have the same look and spec of the redmax ebz 7001 and ebz 8001 respectively. I can drive 30-45 min and purchase the redmax but, my husqvarna dealer is right here 5 min away and has been very good to me. I am just a home owner but, I have a TON of leaves and I am thinking of getting the new 180bt backpack blower from husqvarna. Oh, he will also beat the redmax price by $60. Do I take the chance on the husqvarna or go with the tried and true redmax? Bear in mind the husqvarna service has been excellent and he is much closer to me. Thanks in advance for you opinions.
