    FYI. Just ordered a new 7001 Redmax blower. They are now offering a right hand throttle like the Stihl. I have really missed the one hand operation since purchasing a Shindy. Also the new model is supposed to have over 800 cfm as compared to about 700 cfm for the 7000 model. One other item of note is that the Redmax has a tube from the volute chamber that blows air on the operator to keep him cool. Of course this could be blocked in winter.

    It's not on the Red Max site....what the heck is it (the 7100).

    What is the difference (besides the throttle) ?


    Thanks Dave.

    There are also supposed to be air vents through the back pad that allows air to cool the operator while blowing. These can be plugged during winter use.

    There is about 15% increase in air flow. I will give a review when I get my unit later this week.

    BTW Redmax says they make the motor that Shindaiwa uses in their backpack.
