    Hey I'm looking into purchasing a new Red Max backpack blower because I have a friend that can get me one 10% over cost. At this time I have 2 hand held blowers, one Stihl, and just another cheap Craftsman, which both do really well. I haven't used a backpack blower and am curious to know if they're really worth it.....As far as Red Max goes, I've used a hand held blower of theirs and also a couple trimmers. Does anyone have any suggestions on which model I should go with or if they're worth the extra buck??

    Thanks for the help!!

    They are a must if you do cleanups. At 10% over cost go with the biggest one you can get. Heck get 100 of em' and sell them on e-bay.

    I have the EB7001 and it's amazing, but I have heard that the 8001 is ridiculously powerful.
