    I'm curious what dealer cost on them is. I already know what they look like. They're gigantic next to my old EB 630s which were on the high end of power back when I bought them.

    Retail is $579 for the 580s but careful with buying them on Ebay...often units there don't have a warranty unless you pay extra for it. Great, so I can buy one for $510 or so and then have to pay $100 for the warranty. May as well support my local dealer. I paid $529 for mine last year when they were $559. And techinically in my state sales tax is still due if you buy out of state and they don't collect CT sales tax.

    The truck was there wednesday I stop by he said "I will call you ,I got to put all this together ".Is it normal that a dealer has to put a blower together for before he sell it? I called later and talk to a girl I said "I will put it together myself I need it now " She said ok I will call you back .NO call .I am at the end of rope there is a Redmax dealer closer to me than he is I think I will give them a call.

    Yes. The tubes have to be put together and the dealer normally starts the blower and does any initial adjustments.
