    I have a eb 630 and My helper keeps telling me that the Redmax has way more power. He was using one right before he started working for me. I keep telling him that they have the same engine, but maybe hes right?

    The 630 has alot more power than the 500. I havent used the old 500 in a few months.

    Scott,

    Have you tried the Redmax blowers? ie) 7000 or 8000 series and compare it to the EB630?

    The 7000 and the 630 are the same engine, the Redmax has a better air filter on it though. But I like the flex throttle handle on the Shindaiwa. I found the difference to be minor if any, for Redmax. I own 17 pieces of Shindaiwa though and have always been happy with them.

    I haven't seen an 8000 around yet.
