I don't know why but a lot of dealers I've noticed online aren't allowed to show public pricing for some reason or another, and you have to call to get a simple price, must be some new law or something, even wise sales that I have an account with doesn't show the price on those... but I would assume as they've always been around the $500 mark... Wise does have the 8520's for $449I am interested in buying several new 802's. Just sold all my used backpacks today. I have done a few internet searches but most dealers won't list a price if it's cheaper than retail. Thanks in advance for the info.
I went with the 2stroke simply because of the trouble i have had with the new 4mix style motors. When not if a 4mix blows up its a boat anchor. I can replace piston rings in the 2stroke every 2 years and get as much as 6 seasons out of them. I was feeling lucky to sell my fleet of stihl 600's every 2 years without a grenade. Just an opinion but a gasket and a set of piston rings for apx $30 vs. a loss of $250 ea on replacing a fleet of bp's???Yeah that's not bad, and that's the only blower we've ran is the 802's, have any of you used the 8520's? On paper they have higher CFM/MPH, so just curious if they are better or not?
