I have received sevral e-mails asking what blowers I'm using and if they are powerfull enough to blow leaves. Is your? I don't work for or represent Red Max. I use Red Max EB7000 back pack blowers and they probably are the most powerfull on the market. Yes they work great. What to look for in a blower is the amount of "CFM" Don't worry about air speed, it is how much air volume the blower will move. The more volume, the more leaves or other can be blown in a faster time. I have a leaf loader vac that produces 22,000 CFM. Yes it can move leaves fast, but it is an example, it only has an air speed of about 210 mph. Now the blower has a CFM of 529 at the end of the pipe at 200 mph. Do not get that confused with some others that rate theirs w/o the tube, RM's is 730 w/o tube. BTW they suck down 2 cycle fuel real fast.
