    I read earlier of some guys saying they have already gotten the new 8000. So how does it perform? Is it good enough to wait for? I ask because my local dealer has a sale on 7001 for $400 and it is only going to be for another few days he said.

    Wondering if I should wait on the 8000 or go ahead and add a 7001 to the lineup.

    I got my redmax 8000 on Friday. I used it yesterday when I did my commercial. Blew the whole parking lot with no problem. Its great against rocks and standing water. I just cant wait until the leaves start falling. The 400 is a good deal so I would of gotten the 7001 and then later on get the 8000 but if you have a lot of commercials then get the 8000

    Is there any major design changes on the 8000 on the outside? Or is it identical to the 7001?

    i like what premier lawn care said, the 7001 has a proven engine imo.

    btw you should change eastern siberia to tropical jungle of alabama!!
