    Just bought the Shindaiwa EB630 off ebay for $269+24 shipping. This thing is brand new, in the sealed box. Bought it on 2-23 and its at my house 2-25. This thing is awesome. Tried the brick on the driveway and yes, it works. My dealer told me that he sells them for $449. He also said I would be stupid not to get one for that price, so, I did. Cant wait till the season cranks up. Also bought the last T230 that my dealer has. Hes bringing it by my house later this afternoon. $249. I read that most of yall dont like the new epa stuff(T231) so called dealer and purchased before it was gone. Thanks for the info.

    Great buy, I hope you will get a lot of use out of it. I've heard good things about them.

    Thanks ECM. I would never had bought it if I hadnt done alot of research about everyones likes/dislikes when it comes to blowers and trimmers. I actually spent about 3hrs researching old threads about what yall said. I will be replacing a Echo 403. That blower works for me but the power difference is unreal. I know nobody here likes curved shaft but thats all Ive ever used. I am currently using the Sthil FS75. Again yall made up my mind to try and convert to the straight shaft.

    Hes got 6 more on ebay. He raised the price to $279. Type in Shindaiwa on the search and you will find. Better hurry, they last about 14hrs.
