Bought a new Redmax 7001RH yesterday used it for the first time today. I didn't Know whether to s**t or cry. I wound up crying I think. This thing is a hand-held hurricane! There is simply no comparison to be made with one of the smaller backpack blowers that I used to use. I accidently pointed the nozzle downward at full throttle and actually lifted off of the ground. With some practice I was able to fly around at tree-top level like James Bond. Take the last part of this post as you will, It aint to far from the truth.
