    hey guys I recently bought a shindaiwa 8510 backpack blower. I have been very pleased so far with it but I need another one for my worker for clean ups. I don't have anything to compare to so I was wondring if there is anything better out there our if I should just stick with shindaiwa.

    I have a redmax 8001 and a br 600. I would take the br600 anyday.

    Today, more than other days... I really wish I had another BR600. Compared to our Echo 751 the Stihl is 10X better. Its lighter and a lot more powerful. So my vote goes to Stihl.

    Stihl Br-600 all the way. You must have an I-Q of retardation if you buy something else! Oh yeah just a Carlos Mencia phrase, DUUH DADUUHH!

    Go with the Shindaiwa EB8520 (you'll have to wait a little while though). Almost the same as the 8510, but with some improvements in the back pad. Namely, from the looks of it in a picture, it looks like it is designed to ride differently on the users back.

    Or any of the other fine brands (which does not include the Homelite.. that must have been a joke or something for the poll).
