    This is from redmax
    The EBZ8000 RedMax blower. Its specs as follows:



    72cc

    4.44 hp

    24.4 lbs

    689 CFM (with tube)

    203 mph

    Bigger engine but less output than the 7000 how is that possible!

    Probably less power to meet new emission requirements

    I do not know anything about the eb8000, but I would definetly take the redmax eb7001 over the stihl 420 hands down a better more powerful blower. I have a stihl 420(it is a toy compared to the eb7000 & 7001), a eb7000, and just got the eb7001, man that is a powerful blower. I love it and would get another, and another in a heartbeat. JUst Awesome!!!!

    the impeller design changed slightly to make the 7001 more powerful than the 7000. also the 7001 has a different back pad with a cutout for air circulation to your back. the redmax rep told me in feb that the 8000 would be over 900cfm.... not sure what's up with them or a release date.
