    In the right setting a push mower with a bagger can save you some work as well.

    Interesting. I’ve never used a stihl 800 so I’m not sure how much time it would save me. Now I’m thinking, because I have 2 jobs to do on the 26th, i’ll rent one of those big backpack blowers for the day, to go along with my Echo 500T. Then I’d know whether or not it’s worth to purchase.

    Awesome to hear
    Imo i don’t know how much the extra umph of an 800vs the 500 series would effect time but it will significantly reduce effort. That’s something I noticed. They aren’t much larger or heavier than the 600 series if I recall correctly

    I will agree Cam. We use 2 - 800s and 2 - 600s. The 800s are incredible at moving leafs. Wet or dry.
    The 600s are back ups, or for doing beds.
