    thats kind of a open ended question...
    What do you need it for, what kind of dealers are around you and what is your budget.
    I Swear by Stihl and the Br600 is now my Favorite.

    and a guy who had been doing this for over 30 years told me if you going to get a blower get one with the red back its the best you can get im guessing he was talking about redmax or shinwida. I want it for commerical use and my home accounts

    I use Red Max and absolutely love it. Shindaiwa's are nice too. When buying though I had to take into account that there's a shop just down the street that repairs the Red Max.

    I found my leaf blower on eBay, about $200 less than my retailer.

    Echo PB-755 or Stihl BR-600 - both do a great job; and I think that they're both around $500. . . (I've used both, but owned neither)
    Now I need to buy one. . . lol
