    I have a Stihl BR400. I like it, but I have never used anything else. I didn't shop for mine. I found mine laying on the side of the road one day a few years ago. It looked like it was brand new when I found it. It did have a scrape on the case from when it fell out of a truck going 50 mph probably. I am sure a LCO was sick when he got to where he was going and it wasn't in the back of his truck any longer. It has been a good one

    Many years ago I found a crap load of snap-on tools scattered on a road mostly wrenches and screwdrivers about 1,500 worth

    I run all redmax blowers 2 8000, 7001 and a 7000. The 8000 have their share of problems but the 7001 and 7000 never had a problem.
