Backpack Blower Reccomendations??

Shindaiwa EB500 for $329.00 plus tax

Stihl BR340 for $299.00 plus tax

The one thing I like is that the Stihl throttle is mounted on the tube.

I have a Echo and a Stihl BR400. Had the Stihl for 5 years .Its a really good machine.The stihl will start easy and run for years. You will definitely prefer the controls on the tube.

I have 2 shindaiwa's and an Echo. But I here the new Redmax is a butt kicker.

By the way did you ever get the embroidery from my neighbor with your new logo on there. I saw it on their bulliten board at the shop the other day and thought about you. It looked really good to me.
