    Looking at buying another BP blower I have a Stihl 420C no problems with it for the last 4 yrs. Need another for a backup and to use.

    The three I'm looking at are:
    Stihl 420D
    Echo PB-651
    RedMax EBZ5000

    If you have any of these how have they done for you?

    Between those, I'd go with the Echo. I have had the 650 for 4-5 years now with no problems.

    Why wouldn't you want the Stihl BR 600? I have one and it is super strong, quiet and light.

    All Echo PB-750's here and we love them!

    Great power, relatively quiet and a very large air filter for long life.

    My redmax equipment hasn;t let me down. their blowers and string trimmers are the best imo. LawnInOrder

    Echo 651 for me. It's got the most power. The others imo are too weak.

    Shindaiwa or redmax! Stihl is no good.

    The one that starts each time you want it to.

    Thats the best one.
