    hey guys i'm just curious on what the difference is between the shindaiwa and redmax blowers. They look exactly the same to me. What is different? Are they made by the same company?

    No they are not made by the same company. (They are different if you look closely). However, Redmax, or rather, Zenoah did make the engine for one of the now-obsolete Shindaiwa backpack blowers...model EB630.

    I used both and my personal opinion is that Redmax blowers are far better than Shindaiwa. I'm not saying Shindaiwa is bad. I used them and they were good. I just think Redmax is better.

    i have both of their best bloweres and comparing my eb802shindy to my redmaxebz8001, it depends the shindy is light, comfortable , and starts first pull. the redmax is heavy, and hard to get in flower beds but is clearly more powerful. i thin k i have the perfect setup having both
