    EB5000 should be fine for just about everything except fall cleanups when leaves are wet and thick. I have Echo's 403 blowers with close to the same specs as the eb5000 and they do fine for lawn care but are a little under powered for fall cleanups. Keep in mind Redmax cfm rates are at housing not at pipe and pipe cfm are lower than what they put on there site. If your buying just one backpack blower for everything go with the eb8000. You can get Echo's 755 with close to the same specs as the eb8000 for $450.00 at Echo's cfm specs are rated at the end of the pipe where they should be. Redmax cfm rates are misleading.
