    echo!, 2 year warranty on their blowers. get the 750 for $25 more. the padded straps are worth it.

    REDMAX all the way BABY.

    I have 2 redmax blower. One is 7000 and other is 7001. Redmax is top of the line in 2 cycle equipment. The 7001 is extremely comfortable compared to the others.

    I say red max also no question. I run 2 EB 7000's and one 7001. Most powerful and reliable blowers ive run. Echo Backpacks I own/have owned have never held up near as well.

    I would stay away from the deere.. if you want a kawasaki go buy one.
