    You would be better served by getting a larger backpack blower, if you can afford it. Nearly everyone I know that has purchased a smaller one like these...ends up coming back and saying they wished they had purchased one of the larger machines.

    But, BOTH the Echo and Redmax machines are great.

    I'd rather have a high end handheld blower than a low end backpack blower any day. I just bought a Echo 755. :clapping:

    I also have the PB 200 hand held. Ok for light clippings.

    I absolute agree with the former two replies. You buy a good one and with good care will last you for years to come. You can do the job faster with a stronger blower and result, you can earn more money. If you catch it on sale, the best one will not be much over $400 where the two you mensioned are $300.

    Look at a Redmax, min. 7001, 8001 better!!! They are true 2 cycle and is strong. Echo 751 is good too. Stay away from Hybrid 4 cycle from Shindaiwa and Stihl. Stay with true 2 cycles.

    Call around for special sales.
