    Dad and I had a talk about blowers and I told him what my choices were. I said I can buy a weenee one at the dealer or pay 60 bucks more and get a top of the line one. I checked Alamia and they don't have Redmax's biggest one. But they do have the Shindaiwa EB630. Shindaiwa EB630 owners: anything wrong with this model? Is it "the best"? Any regrets? Can I use Stihl oil or should I buy oil when I go to the "Big Town"? Any info would really help guys. I'm so close to getting one.:D Thanks guys.

    just my opinion but I prefer the Husqvarna 155BT. It is a great blower and is serving my business well.As far as oil, I use Havoline Tc3 works great and it comes in quarts which means more for the $

    If you're planning on being in Spokane soon, I know where you can pick up a Shindaiwa EB500 for around 300 bucks. The Saw Clinic on North Market street had a couple on sale last time I was in there. I have a EB500, it works okay. But not as much power as the bigger Shindy.

    I have a Redmax 6200 blower,its awsome. Until it fell off my trailer(see other thread)2 days ago, I also had a Shindaiwa EB630. It's also awsome. Their both very powerful and you'd be pleased with either one!

    I have a Redmax. I can't say enough good things about it. And the only BP I know of that's lighter is that new Echo 260L. Mine will push a brick on the sidewalk. Don't know muchabout Shindaiwa; the dealer here is a @#$%! Don't think you can go wrong either way though.

    I have redmax eb6200 and a stihl br400(garbage). The redmax is just plain awsome!!! I don't like shindawia that much. I not crazy over the trimmers and stuff, i never used oneof the blowers though. I definitly go with the REDMAX! As for oil I use NO SMOKE 2 STROKE.

    I have Shindaiwa EB630 and a Stihl BR400. i think the Shindaiwa has a little more ass, but the Stihl is far from garbage :rolleyes: .

    Alamia did have the Redmax, I don't know what happened there :confused:
