    Copy your question into the search box and see what you come up with about Redmax 7001's and the 8000.

    Well, if you want the absolute baddest, most powerful blower on the planet, the Redmax 8000 is KING... I have it's queen, the 7001, and it is about @ double the power of the Br 420 I used to have last year..

    If you are a hardcore Stihl guy though, check out the br 550... It's about 3/4 as strong as my Redmax 7001. And we ( my former employer ) picked up three of them For $399 + tax each without even trying to beat the dealer on the price. Contray to some reports on them, they are really a good machine, and I wouldn't hesitate to buy one, either. They are very easy on fuel in our experience.

    You can find the 7001 for as little as $400, I think I've seen it one E-bay for $389.

    The cheapest I've been quoted on the 8000 is $429 here locally. Which is an absolute steal in my book, but that was assuming we we're buying 3 at a time..Expect to pay $459 or so, give or take $20... Even if you had to pay a $50 premium to get an 8000 over any other blower made, it'd still be worth it.

    BTW, I really wouldn't be too apt to get one off of e-bay, simply because of the shipping..
