I'm looking at buying the Red MAX EBZ8000, but when I was looking at my current Craftsman blower, I'm starting to re think it. The Craftsman is about a year old and runs pretty good, but I wanted a littlre more blowing power. I know the blowing speed of the EBZ8000 is 204mph, and the one I have now is 185mph. Is it worth the $500+ that I am going to spend on the EBZ8000, or is the blowing speed not all that determines how much blowing power there is. I just can't see spending that much on not that big of a difference. Thanks for the help.
