    With pipe is 915 cfm. I can blow a gate entrance closed with it while the rod scrapes the cement:weightlifter::laugh: I wouldn't use anything more powerful than the redmaxx 8001

    I thought it was like 750cfm's at the end of the pipe. I own one, and it does kick @ss!!

    I have the 8000 which i love for the bigger jobs. I had some problems with it at first but i think they have all the quirks out. Basically put a new engine on it and ive had no problems since except for the kill switch. I have heard alot of guys around here who like the redmax better.

    seems most people like the STIHL because it is lighter and more confrotable, i know i am getting a BR 600 this week!

    I own two redmax 8000's and I have used them for years. I would not give them up for anything. I own one of the older versions with the throttle and kill switch on the opposite side of the pipe and one of the newer versions with the throttle and kill switch on a pistol grip connected to pipe. The only work I have had to do on them is put new carbs on both. Otherwise they have delivered excellent service and their power has come very handy especially on those horrible leaf cleanups with wet piles of leaves.
