    need backpack blower and was thinking tanaka or stihl,, never used either one and was thinking stihl but starting to have second thoughts. got tanaka handheld and can't say enough about it so don't think would be disappointed with that backpack. think stihl got more output and is lighter but would like to hear from someone and if they had any thoughts. thanks

    did before and didn't remember much on tanaka , but did search again and found a couple, thanks, but not enough for me. anyway looks like the redmax wouldn't be a bad buy if can switch out tubes to the app. got dealer that sells both tanaka and redmax, it's a drive but i think one of the best.

    get a stihl. in my opinion, it is better than tanaka.

    stopped in at lesco in town today and saw a kawasawki blower (krb700b). don't think was running in awhile but once got going thought ran nice, got to blow some stones around,only thing never used one so have nothing to compare to. took note on hose ass., ease of use and how it felt, if do find myself buying it's selling for under $350
