    A picture from a dealer website showing a BR420, BR550 and BR600 suspending basketballs. I wonder how far my Redmax 7001 could throw one up?

    The picture is b.s. Even if the blower has enough power to suspend a basketball, which it may, you could never get it to balance like this picture shows.

    Prove it!, come on, if it's BS prove it's BS. If this were echo you'd be all over it singing their praises up and down.

    A Lazer must have cut out the thinking part of your brain. I don't care if you have ECHO, Stihl, RedMax, Shindaiwa, Dolmar, whatever. I don't have to prove it, go out and try it.:hammerhead:

    The BR600 is the best blower out there hands down.

    I'm gonna take a basketball to my storage on Wednesday on my way out for service, set up my digital video camera and see if I cant get it to work. I've never tried it but I've seen videos of it being done.

    Great picture. I'm a fan of Stihl but Green is right, there's no way they could balance the basketball's properly with just a blower for the picture.
