    Some people say they are having problems with the power of the Redmax 8000 along with other issues...when I demoed it, I saw no problems with the power, that is for sure, as it blows just about anything...however, I only demoed it for 15 minutes, not day in and day out...please let us know of any issues that you all are having, before I go out and purchase this machine...thanks....

    We have sold about 10 of them, and had not even one come back for warranty work.

    the only problems that have come by me at work have been carb issues, i can only think of 2 8000's that have come in though, the rest have been mostly stihl

    I don't know if the 8000 does this or not. We have 3 7001 and toward the end of the day they like to vapor lock, we have tried venting the tanks and have had carb work done. The hotter it is outside the worse it gets! Any other ideas? :angry:
