    This is like a ford v. chevy question. They are all good. Just find one that you like and find a dealer that sells them. They are all petty good.

    Best all around Redmax 7001.
    Most powerful RM 8001 and Shind. 8510
    Most innovative Stihl Br600
    I've owned everyone of them.You may say just my opinion. But I feel it's a fact:laugh:

    After doing some research and asking other operators what they used or would buy(if they were buying), I got the Shindaiwa EB630RT.

    The echo 651's are nice. I have 2 and like them both for the price. No way im paying double for a little bit more power (redmax 8001) when I can get 2 which is far more powerful. No point in getting the 751 unless you experience very dusty conditions.

    Cheers
    Jeff

    RedMax...RedMax... I run 2 of them, EBZ4800 & EBZ8000. I just bought the new EBZ8000 yesterday and used all day today. Leaves and debris don't stand a chance to this beast. The EBZ4800 is quiet (65db) and powerful. Both blowers a have the dependable and fuel efficiant Strato Charged engines.
