    That blower looks bad. The dealer didn't have one for me to test out but had two on display with one already having a sold sticker on it. The cost is $550. Any one have any specs on this blower? The dealer didn't have any.
    I didn't like the plastic near the choke. It was hard to move it and I have skinny fingers.. I don't care for the pistol throttle either...

    Seems Shindiawa is slow on updating their web site. My dealer said there was a comparison between all big blowers and the Shindiawa came out on top. Could of been just sales talk but I really want to see the specs. I might have to sell my EB630.... I'm keeping my 7001 though.

    I belive that the eba8510 has around 950cfm I am not sure if it is tubes on, or tubes off. I am assuming it is with tubes. I asked shindaiwa, and they wouldn't say.

    I doubt the shind is 950 cfm with the tubes, considering they have a wind speed of 203 I believe. The stihl has a windspeed of 201? i think it is with 718 cfm, the redmax is 201 or 202 mph with 688. It doesn't add up. 950 cfm would have to be like 210 or more windspeed.

    I believe, from something I read the the volume at the tube is a "feet staggering 762 cfm".

    Also, I would think it would be available in both throttle configurations, just like the EB630/EB630RT.

    This is why I would like to see a spec sheet for this blower. The dealer said it is currently the most powerful blower on the market but I wanted to see paper work on it to prove it be they didn't have any. After I left I realized I could of just asked to look at the owners manual...... (duh)

    It is not even shown on the website...I know that it is on google, but the pic is little and shows nothing...and to say again, it is impossible for the thing to be over 900cfm at the pipe with that small looking pipe, especially with the given mph...

    That's it.... You see the hole on the left in front of the air filter? Thats where you put your finger to put the choke on. The air filter cover has a screw to take off to remove the air filter which is a step up from the EB630. The tube was thicker at the flexible elbow section.
