    I just saw 1 on ebay for $395.. For that much Id look into a good name brand. Shindawia, Redmax, Stihl, Echo etc......

    we have a krb 400b, work o.k. not real powerful but works allright considering the abuse it takes...we also have a shindaiwa whatever the nice one is...the shindaiwa is hands down more powerful, but also more costly

    But well worth it. I had a Shin blower and loved it.. But someone wanted it more than I did :nono:

    Prob the same ebay store I was looking at, the KRB700 is suppose to be the top of the line from what I can tell, and for that price................its atleast 100- 150 bux cheaper then the top of the line in the other brands. Im minly looking for something to help with leaves this winter

    I'd spend 50 more bucks and get an Echo PB-751.

    Great power (more than the Kaw) quiet and a 2 year commercial warranty. Echo blowers have served us very well for years...

    How do the specs of the kawaski stack up to the specs of redmax, ech and shindaiwa? (engine cc's, air cfm, warranty etc?) If the specs are about even, I'd buy it, if not I would pass on it. JMO

    From what I saw on the specs, and everyone seems to rate them different, it seems to compare with the redmax 7001 and the shindiawa 600-630? I cant remember the model number
