    Spend a few extra bucks and get the Redmax 8000. It's worth it...I know...I have both the 7001 and 8000.

    RedMax is the only way to go!

    I know I already posted about getting the 8000. But, if you have to decide between the 7001 and the 650 (not 651), get the 650. Sorry to sound like a broken record, but I have a Echo 650 too.

    I went with the echo 651. MORE POWERFULL, and just felt good on my back.

    i was able to trade the stihl br420c magnum for the echo 651. i like the echo alot. it also starts easier than the stihl. the dealer did not carry redmax but i am sure it is awesome too.
