    I have to buy one today. these are my options. the 750 is about $500 locally. the 650 is on sale. I want to know if the 8000 is $125 better than the 650.

    I have never personally USED the Redmax 8000, but I've tried it on, and I agree, I could work with it all day.

    Compare the two side by side.. statistically..

  6. I have both the echo 650 and just got the redmax 8000...the echo 650 and 750 are the same blower powerwise ..750 has a bigger aircleaner .

    I have no idea yet how the redmax is gonna hold up mechanically but from what i see its a well built unit and quality is written ed all over it.The echo's have held up great not one problem last year and this year .

    Id say the redmax is a good 30% more powerful then the echo and for me will be worth the difference in price when heavy leaf season gets going.
    If i didn't have a heavy leaf season i wouldn't pay 125 difference
