    I have a Kawasaki KRB400A it is the smallest of the two backpack blowers, can't remember the bigger one, i think it's a 700. They have the KRB and then either 400 (smaller one) or 700 (larger one) and then either an "A" if it has the left hand throttle, frame mounted, or "B" if it is tube handle right hand throttle. Great blower! More powerful but lighter in weight than a Stihl BR340. It always starts on the 2nd pull no matter the weather (cold start) just choke it, prime 3 times and turn the switch on and it starts up at idle. For $325 I'd get them! Thats cheap for the larger model!

    Do you mean KRB700? If so you'd better run, not walk and get'm for that price. If it's the KRB700 it's comparible to the Redmax that everyone on this forum loves. I've had a Krb700 since this last season and have not had any trouble with it. It's awesume.

    Sorry, they are KRB700 Bs dealer cost $362. I can get them for $350 each.( At lesco. They wont take $325). Anybody else use em. Big motor (60cc) 20lbs. Looks decent. Lets hear some reports.

    60cc engine for $350...not too shabby. What's the cfm rating though?
