    I need a new leaf blower and have pretty much decided on either of the above mentioned models. I know there are better ones but I don't want to spend more than $300.00 which is the price of both of these. I have had Stihl chain saws for over 30 years and appreciate their quality but have only recently come across the RedMax name. Any opinions from those who know these items better than me are greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Our guys like RedMax blowers, we have 7 of them. Our mechanic likes them too.

    I have a stihl br 340, it is a very reliable blower. In 4 years of service about the only thing Ive had to do is clean/remove the screen in the muffler

    Red Max blows more volume....dont forget to remove the spark arresstor in bothe units they rob power especially when they clog up
