    For anyone who own one or both of the Shindaiwa EB630 and the Red Max E7000 back pack blowers, are there any real differences between the two? They both share the same unit and similar CFM and MPH. What about other factors like comfort, ease of use, durability, maintenance, fuel consumption and ultimately; productivity. Any info. would be much appreciated.
    Thanks

    You really can't go wrong with either. I have the Shiny630 i do like the fact its 3-lbs lighter than the redmax, other than that both are tops, but those badboys go though some gas,my shindaiwa uses two tanks of gas compeared to my echo pb-601 same amount of time uses 1.5 tanks,plus both are comfortable.

    I do have both, mostly the same but I like the Shin better. Seems a little stronger also.

    I have the redmax eb7000. Its one bad dude. But as stated before. It does suck some major fuel.

    They both have same engine by Zenoah - Komatsu. Its a matter of personal preference on the throttle control, and what your dealer has to offer.

    The Redmax has a huge airfilter, not sure about the Shindiawa.

    Saw the Redmax man at the trade show in Somerset NJ today. We were talking about this. 3 basic differences: Thruttle control, Redmax has leaf screen for air intake, and yes the larger 2 stage air filter. Shin's are more similar to 6200's.
