    What Redmax Equipment do you have?

    When did you get it?

    How much was it?

    What's went wrong with it?

    What have you had to fix on it?

    Would you get another?

    Is there anything you really like, or dislike about it?

    Compair it to your other equipment if you have both.

    This was my first year with Redmax equipment and I was very pleased with it. Bought 3 8000 BP's and 3 trimmers (not sure what model they are) which held up extremely well. In the past I was exclusively Echo, but that is gonna change (and has).

    Will I buy more? Yes, I am planning on it next Spring.

    That's a lot of new equipment in one year. Was it just time to update, or was everything else just junk?

    I have a 2004 Red Max BCZ2600S string trimmer and I love it!!!
    I got it this past spring.
    I got it at my local dealer for $299.
    I have had NO problems with it at all!!!
    I love that it has a lot of power and torque!!!
    I would definitely get another Red Max product!!!!

    This was also my first year with Red Max. Have a 7001eb and trimmer (don't know what model). Haven't had any problems with either yet.

    Redmax BCZ2600S trimmer- cant remember what I paid.
    Redmax EB7001RH blower - $499.00 I think, but that price has since come down.

    The only problems I've had have been minor in comparison the other brands I own. Broken thottle lock on blower and a starting problem with blower that was solved by reading the owners manual.

    I like Redmax primarily for the dependability and power.

    I definitely will purchase more Redmax equipment in the future and would recommend others to do likewise, although I do think other product mfgs have strengths in other areas.

    I have a 7001 BP blower. I love it. I get to get an 8000 next year :) The only problem I've had with mine is the sticker on the gas tank came off. ;)
