    A local dealer gave me a call to come check out the new Shindy 8510(I think) says it blows away the 8000. I'll see tomorrow.

    By 4mix type I mean 2 and 4 cycle hybrid has valves and runs on mix. Shindy has a motor similar to Stihl's I call it 4mix type. Hope this clarifies.

    These BP blowers are going to be to heavyto even lift onto your back real soon! I spent over 500 dollars on my Redmax 8001 and my guys leave it at the shop. They would rather use the light 7001's! :dizzy:

    Saw it today at least as powerful as the 8000 bigger tube as well and a bit lighter and did I mention quieter :cry: too bad I just bought 2 8000's last month :cry:

    No it's not a Zenoah. The dealer told me it's made exclusively by Shindaiwa for Shindaiwa. 85cc :blob3:
