    I know the best blower topic has come up 100's of times on here but I wanted to know if anyone has tried the new redmax 6500rh blower. I was set on buying an Echo 770t this spring but I saw the redmax today and it seemed like a nice blower for over $100 less. Any thoughts appreciated.

    It has the same basic engine as the RM 7500/ Husky 570 BTS, and is in fact the RM counterpart to the Husky 560 BTS. It must have a slightly smaller fan, and smaller diameter tubes on it. It turns up the same MPH as the 7500/570, but about 100 less CFM . It doesn't have the top mounted air filter either, which helps keep dirt away from the filter better, but also sticks up off the top of the machine and makes it bulkier. I have the Husky 570 BTS, and flat out love it.


    I'd say for $100 bucks less, the new RM 6500/Husky 560 would be a darn good blower!

    It really performs well. My dealer sells the for $399. The biggest difference is the air cleaner is on the side rather than the top like other RedMax blowers. We have 4 of them and so far no problems. It has the same engine as the EBZ7500 and is $100 less.
