    what would be a good backpack blower to use if you only had 20 residential accounts. I'm about to buy me a new one?

    20 accounts still warrants a commercial blower.
    Check out a Solo 471/472. Fair price awesome power, German made.
    Of course RedMax and Echo are hard to beat.:)

    redmax 7001 is a great blower for the money also the echo 751/755 is equal in power for about $50.00 less the echo is louder and does vibrate more though.

    look at the br550 for power and price compared to redmax. after all redmax is only a high priced shindawa .

    The Echo PB620 blower is good and it has carb adjustment for gas flow. This is a light weight unit but is durable.
