    i was wondering the cost of some backpack blowers and i cant find a few of them. What is the cost of: Echo PB 755, Stihl BR600, Redmax EBZ 8001?

    i think the Echo is around $450 but i dont think i am going to go with Echo for the blower. prolly stihl or redmax.

    thank you

    Bought my BR-600 for just under 500 after tax. I think it was like 460 before tax? Maye a little more or less. I think when I looked at redmax it was well over 500 somewhere in the 600 range not sure though. Someone else should know!

    The echo goes for $480 or so depending on where you get it.

    I cant understand some of these people who buy stuff online only to save a few bucks. I can get a redmax ebz8001 from my dealer for $499. I cant see how saving a whoping $15 (or like $45 after taxes) is a big deal. If I should have problems, my dealer will help me out and be nice to me. If I walk in and tell him I got it online, Its not gonna be what he wants to hear.

    Were all in business (lco's and dealers). I support my dealer and he does his best to support me! JMO

    let me ask this...if you were shopping for a car, would you buy it from your local dealer, even if the cost was 10% higher than let's say a dealer 50 miles from you? My guy has no problem fixing equipment bought online, as long as I pay him labor and parts...and since i purchased from an authorized be it online...there are no warranty issues either.
