    Just out of curiousity, is the 8001's power that much greater then the 7001 that it is worth the extra weight and money? We personally have never used an 8001 yet, but have been told that there isn't that much of a noticeable difference. If you were dealing with thick or wet leaves maybe, but the added weight and price didn't make it worth it. What do you folks think? I have seen quite a few threads where people are talking them up.

    That's a pretty good price. Have you got much use out of it yet?

    We have a 8000 and love it. The power is unreal compared to any others that we have tried. On the 8001 they have changed a few things but looks almost the same. Tomorrow will be the first time using it because it just came yesterday.

    whats the difference in the 8000 and the 8001? and also how much does the 8001 cost from a dealer? is it $489.00 like dcondon said or what? where did you get yours from?

    actually I got it for $484.50, shipping included. Ebay:)
    I would say its probably one of the best blowers on the market. I picked up a br600 10-26-06, used it for awhile, couple days, had more expectations for it, they never came thru. Had it checked all out etc, stihl bought it back, thank god.

    Wow! they are some good prices that you guys got on those. We paid around that price for a 7001 earlier this year.
