    I'm looking to buy a new backpack blower and have narrowed it down to a stihl 4-mix BR600 or a maruyama BL6700. which brand do you think is best?
    Thanks for the input..:)

    I would go with the stihl. I use echo 650's, they are great.

    I run the RedMax EB7001 and LOVE IT! Very easy to start and all the power you could ever want!

    Get the 600 plenty of power and very fuel efficent. The 550 is what I have and it tackled all the jobs I've put it through. I don't know why people change the subjects on hear when you want know about Stihl and Mauruyama.

    I use the echo 651 and love them, if I was picking between those two that you mentioned I would go with the Stihl.
