    Just get it, by the time you shop around you will spend the difference on fuel.

    Shopping is part of the fun. Sometimes it is nice to brag that you paid $10 cheaper than anyone else even you spent $20 on gas to find that!!!!!:laugh::laugh:

    I am serious!!!!! $20 don't mean anything, bragging last a long time:laughing::laughing::laughing::laughing:

    And if you keep that principle, it might take you long time to do the research the first time, but in the future, you just go there to get the best price. You'll be surprised how much you can safe just by a penny here and a penny there.

    I have heard there were some carburetor issues with the 8000 that were fixed with the 8001, but I don't know if that is just hearsay or if it was actually a problem. Any verification as true or not would be nice.

    I think you have it vice versa I think the EBZ 80001 should be better 203MPH and more cfm's versus the EBZ80000. Just shocked that this was made for a while and the price is still high!!

    i called redmax 3 times to clarify this. One guy flat out told me he didn't know. The other 2 times i was transfered to voice mails and never recieved a call back.

    So I called 3 dealers, they all told me that it was just a model number change where they had tweaked a few things. Same engine and performance specs. Something about frames breaking and mufflers falling off and some support that was added.

    Seems right.

    I guess when they tweaked the Redmax 8001 it lost a little power from the carbs. Difference shouldn't be noticeable.

    I went to my Redmax dealer to buy one(8001) and he didn't have any and wasn't gonna get any> just sold the 7001 and said it was way more reliable and a proven design. So I didn't buy anything till I checked that out. Still haven't bought one yet, David
