    This is an email sent to me from Shindaiwa...my request for info from Shindaiwa was answered within hours--redmax has NEVER responded to my emails--NEVER! And I have sent them at least 20 emails...Stihl responds quickly also...ok, here is the email:

    Hello,
    Thank you for contacting Shindaiwa. Our new EB8510 blower which will
    be on the market soon, will not only compete with the Redmax unit, it
    will literally (no pun intended) blow it away. It is lighter, quieter,
    has more CFM's, has more air speed, and is more economical. Please
    contact the Distributor for your state because Shindaiwa has sent
    sample
    units to the Distributor Sales Reps just this week! I hope this
    information help. EOM...
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Dcplace again...we shall see, as cfm can be deceiving as we can see with the redmax 8000 and stihl br600...impeller and tube design and Bernoulli's Principle http://home.earthlink.net/~mmc1919/venturi.html play a big role in volume, air speed, etc...I am glad I am waiting and am happy with my purchase of the BR600...it is a well-rounded blower...I like the redmax's power, but nothing else about it or its pathetic company or (some) dealers...we shall see...peace...

    I am curious about the cfm at the pipe and the tube design...I am figuring the tube design is like the redmax 8000, not the BR600...

    and I don't think I even want to mess with the Shindy dealers here either...pretty much like the redmax dealers here...That place of orange and white are starting to pizz me off too with their ba$tard child of a BP blower I got two weeks ago...I am eating crow with the lemon I bought from them...My BP has spent more time in the shop than blowing, that is for sure...

    Sounds nice.. Shindy BY FAR MAKES THE BEST DAMN WHACKERS! I've liked my RedMax blowers but have not been happy with the whippers. Maybe I'm only happy with the blowers because I haven't experienced a nice Shindy blower.

    i think because the model number is 8510 it will be one of those four mixes. I have a T2500 trimmer, and I think it is great, A little heavy, But great. Too bad I just bought a 8000 but, I think I might have to try this 8510 out.

    not sure if this site competes with Lawnsite or not, but by googling EB8510, I found this info with a picture.
    Ok, after looking at that site for a minute more, it appears it would be a competing site (i thought it was a magazine site or something at first though)

    But anyway, here is a copy paste of the info.

    If you want to see a picture, do a google search on "EB8510"

    Shindaiwa EB8510 Backpack Blower

    Big, bad and blue, Shindaiwa's new EB8510 features a 79.7-cc displacement and 4.3-horsepower (3.2 kW) at 7,500 rpm, generating a 203-mph air speed and 952-cfm air volume. It also features a chrome-plated cylinder with 2-ring piston design, a durable 2-staged air filter system with extra-large surface area, and excellent fuel economy versus the equivalent 2-stroke. With the EB8510, it's business as usual with 50:1 mix, so no dipstick is needed.

    Those are nice numbers. The 203 mph air speed is right in line with the Redmax (203) and a hair above the Stihl (201). The 952 cfm velocity is above the Redmax (943) but well below the Stihl (1012). I'd like to know what it weighs because it's going to be hard to beat Stihl's 20.9 pounds.
