    crazyflyboy-


    I don't want to pick on you, but could you please try to write your posts more clearly? I'm not sure what you are saying (or asking) a lot of the time.:confused:

    I've contacted a company and voiced my opinion on build quality and a common sense approach to making design changes. Whether it was coincidental or not the changes I recommended were implemented into the next generation of that product.

    Being an engineer means little to me. Just means most went to college for it. Never guarantees anything. Being German means even less. I'd rather have Japanese quality than pretty much anything to ever come out of Germany.

    People seem to think Germans have it all figured out. Yeah that worked out well for the Mayans too didn't it?

    Well let's see, I 'm not a big fan of the Germans, I worked for them for six LOOOONG years, designed and implemented production processes as well as constructed their suv's, they've got something figured out though they can't make enough of their cars, every suv that came off the line was already sold, we put 700 suv's a day out the door with less than a 5% return rate, last I read they were up to 800 a day now. JAPANESE and QUALITY should never be put in the same sentence, especially with automobiles. If people really knew how cars were built they wouldn't pay what they charge for them.

    Don't get me started on German autos...I owned a VW Eurovan and put more money into that POS than every other car I've ever owned combined, and that was only from when the warranty expired to when I dumped it with 39,500 miles on it.

    I have read all the post on a other thread they say that it is as strong as a Redmax 8000 has it has 75.6 cc,3.8 hp ,720 cfm,195 mph,to me at 3.8hp would produces the 720 cfm,195 mph that is on the Technical specifications as for a comparison I say the Husqvarna 560BFS has 3.81 hp Air flow in pipe 632.13 cfm ,Air speed (round nozzle) 232.42 mph you can see that if air speed was lower some the cfm would go up and that the total output is almost the same.
