    I was thinking of going with a used Redmax eb7000 - 200 mph and 529 CFM but now im thinking about spending a little more money and getting the eb7001 - 205 mph and 633 CFM. What do you guys think? The 7000 is about $225 and the 7001 is about $325 used, or should I buy new and get a warranty?

    I have searched and read, just looking for somebody to say why and make me finalize whcih blower, thanks

    Is it your only backpack?

    If so, IMO get the new one with the warranty.

    If you can afford it, get the 8000. The other two don't come close. Period

    I did pick up a 8000 and it's real good. Glad I bought new as I have had some issues with it.

    All warranty - design stuff.

    Get a new one with the warranty, so if any problems, you are covered. I use the 7001, plenty of power and of course you can go with the 8000 if you have the cash. Good luck.

    I'd go w/ RedMax 8000 if you want power.
