    Does anyone have this extra piece of tube for their EB7001?? If so, is it a noticeable difference?
    How much $ was it? And how does it attach (there's nothing at the end of my tube)?.
    Thanks.

    I was curious about this as well, in a post about the new 8000, the turbo nozzle is discused but no one gives a place to buy it. My dealer has no idea what I am talking about when I asked him about it, but would like to know where I can get it too.

    Have your dealer or you can call my dealer. Josh-360-384-0799. He knows where to get em.

    It will make a difference. basically it is a tip for the tube that has a slightly smaller egress. (i think-had it so long i forget what a regular one is like now, lol)
    With the turbo on i would say it comes as close as you can get to an 8000. The BIG difference would be the cfm. The 8K has much more flow vs pressure.
    The tip is nice though. You should be happy with it. Not sure how much, cant be too much though.

    Thanks Acute. The only thing I still don't get is how it attaches? The other pieces have that little nub on one end and a slot on the other and you twist them together...........well, you guys know what I'm talking about.
    But at the very end of the tube there is nothing there like that.

    all you are doing is changing the noozle just twist the large one off and twist the smaller one on price is 7.00 to 9.00 dollars the difference is the air is more controlable worth the few dollars.

    Can you post a pic? I have seen the " silencer " extension, on other Redmax models. My 7001 is just a straight tube.

    Ooooohhh! I thought it was an extension that went on the end, making it longer. I didn't realize it "replaced" the end piece.
    I'll check with my local dealer. Thanks!

    All redmax's are straight tubed. Think of the force created by the air leaving the end of the tube. If you put a curve there it would create a "reaction" and would make the whole tube push away from the bend. I.E. For every action there is an opposite and equal reaction. 8 Gazillion CFM's will create a lot of reaction. :)
