    Im thinking of getting a new Gas Blower but im not sure which one to get. Id like something with power but also with a low db also...something long lasting and a quick start, price range $250-$350? Info appreciated!

    the red max eb 6200 seems like a good one its the most powerful. they make the best blowers i think. shidawia makes them good to but i think red max has more experience.

    Echo has come out with a 200mph light weight blower. I like echo equipment. No shandiawi dealer here yet but would like to give them a try too.

    I havent tried too many but i can tell you i bought a used red-max 2 years ago and it will still crank on the first 1 or 2 pulls cold...as far as power compared to anything else all i know is it does a great job, the next 1 i buy will be a red max<p>----------<br>CJC Landscape Management<br>Winter Haven, Florida

    The EB 6200 Red Max is what we replaced our Shindaiwa with last year. It is lighter and a lot more powerful than our previous blower. When you rev it up full blast, it actually lifts up off my back from the downward thrust of air so it is lighter yet. We have used it one full season with out problems and like it a lot. At the time we got it, the new 62cc Shindaiwa wasn't out yet, so this is why we switched brands of blowers.<p>----------<br>&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.townserver.com/elm/&quot;&gt;Eric@ELM&lt;/a&gt;<br>

    I have been using Stihl BR 400's for about 7 years. I like 'em. They are reliable, out of the 4 that I have had, only one ever had a problem, it had a plugged exhaust port when it was about three months old. Remove the spark arrestor and even that want happen. I have thought about trying a the new big Shindaiwa, but I haven't yet. They claim it has more air volume, but I am not sure if it really does.
