Is Shindaiwa's new big bad blower a 4 mix?

    I heard they have a blower coming to match the Redmax 8000. I was also told it's C 4 (4 mix) technology?

    that's kind of weird.

    you'd loose the advantages of C4 in a blower, and bring a whole bunch of problems.
    I can see the C4 on trimmers, cause you get a lot more torque, but a blower really doesn't need that much torque, it faces the same work load at high throttle every time, unlike a trimmer that may have varying degrees of grass to go through.

    I could probably make a WICKED 137CC blower that would literally blow the competion clean out of the sea. All I need is a Stihl 090 chainsaw powerhead, some machining tools, the redmax 8000 blower housing, and you'd have a REALLY WICKED blower on your hands.
