    Someone stole my Husky 145 blower this weekend. Looked at some post for the EBZ8001. Most said that the RM very good and powerful....couple said couldn't tell the diff between the other big boys. Can get another Kaw KBR 750 (pushing 800 cfm) for about $475 out the door. Redmax website shows EBZ80001 pushing 915 cfm, while the others big boys push about 800. I'm pretty happy with the Kaw, but always looking to improve. The RM EBZ8001 will cost about $600 out the door. Both Kaw and Redmax dealers good. Basically is the RM EBZ8001 worth the extra $125 and will I notice a big difference. Thank you.

    Well after recently purchasing a 7001 and many discussions about this with my dealer on whether a 7001 or 8001 is the right tool. Basically the 7001 has the same engine as the 8001 and is a bit lighter due to a smaller frame. The 7001 has slightly less air flow but has the same power. I got mine for 425 out the door. I like it a lot and have had no problems with it.

    I just bought a Stihl BR600 and love it. If youve got your heart set on RM try speedwaysales.com. Personally my Redmax equipment fowls plugs easily. I use the same fuel in all equipment and the redmax is the brand that fowls.

    What fouls plugs is fuel and a dirty air filter not the 2 stroke machine.

    I thought that the 8001 has a 71.9 cc engine and the 7001 has a 62 cc engine, accroding to the website, when you say they have the same engine, do you mean the same type but different size? I'm looking to see if the 8001 is really that much more powerful than the other big ones. Does 100 cfms make that big of a difference?

    It most certainly is more powerful...demo the thing in front of the store! As to fouling plugs...LOL! I don't think I fouled one in 15 years. The real answer is..a 7000 is very very good! A 8000 is better.

    When I run Shindaiwa and 2 pieces of Redmax out of the same can, and the 22 Redmax foul and the Shindaiwa doesnt,what does that mean? My air filters were not dirty either. Give me a break bud.

    I saw a guy using one of those blowers this week. He was kind of a small guy...but man...this blower looked HUGE on him. Im sure they can blow like crazy but how are they to use day in and day out? My wife helps me and the Shindaiwa EB630 is almost to big/bulky for her.

    I have two 8001's , their an improvement over my 8000, frame improvement's, along with other bug fixes, most noticeably the choke knob was improved. The 8001's are heavier and use more gas than does my echo 650 and 755, but they are the blower I use for fall leaves and clean ups.
