    Hi,
    Ok - I have the field test program back in business. Our new one-man auger, the TIA-350S, is currently being put through the paces down in AL.

    I'm in the market for both a handheld and backpac blower, that's what I'd like to see tested.

    Already have the 210S and totally happy with it.

    Having many handheld blowers from the main brands (Stihl, Redmax, JD 4cycle, Echo and Tanaka) I must say, the Tanaka is a special breed. Nice weight, awesome blowing power, high quality and some metal pieces in areas mostly plastic in others.
    Impressive handheld. Could use a rubberized hand grip area and better hold down and start stability. The Stihl is like a BMW, Tanaka like a Nissan 350Z,
    Redmax like a Chevy truck, John Deere BH25LE a Cadillac. O the echo is a honda. Where is Honda in the blower market anyway?

    Hey it's prunin' time in my neck of the woods. I know there has been a lot said about the 210S, and I belive it's been tested too. I'm Stihl torn between which model/manufacturer to go with.

    OK
    Get either the Tanaka or the Redmax.
    Both quality machines to last quite a while.

    OK so which model RedMax & how much. The Tanaka 210S is $350. The Stihl HS80 is $350 & the Stihl HS81 is $425. So... which RedMax competes at these price points? Thanks
