    What are your thoughts on there blowers- A sales guy was telling me that the 630 model he "thought" was stronger than the 750 echoes. I don't rember hearing much about the shindauha blowers - To me they look alot like the Husky blowers.

    Are the Echoes and Redmax blowers still the top cfm dogs?
    Thanks Joel

    *Shindaiwa - The 630 is their middle-end unit. But they have recently come out with some really powerful high end units.

    I dont think the eb630 is the middle end unit. They are high end units. They make a four stroke now but its a little heavier.
    I have about 8 shindawia EB630's and they are by far the best blowers I have ever owned.

    If you have a RedMax dealer that will demo to you an 8000 or 7001 back pack, try it out. YOU WON'T BE DISAPOINTED!!!!!!!
    I have them both and highly recomend them. Not only for grass clippings in the summer, but they are top of the line for leaf removal in the fall.

    I'd recommend Redmax. I have an EB7001, and it works great. The only bad thing is that sometimes I have to baby it, because it starts to make a weird noise. But most of the time if I let it warm up, it works great. I think that Shindaiwa would be real nice, but so would Echo. Their new PB755 looks pretty nice. Runs about $450. That'd probably be my next blower purchase, since there is no Redmax dealer by me.

    Blower prices are all close but the performance and light weight of the redmax makes them king.
