    Hey Guys, Just curious, I work at the University of Minnesota, and we are looking at new blowers. I have always been a fan of Redmax...and shindaiwa. I am interested in the shindaiwa EB 802 backpack blower. I know what the Redmax can do, having used them previously. I am alos interested in the EB212. Both of these blowers are fairly new to the market, so any info is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    We use the Shindaiwa 8510 and they are the greatest blowers I have ever used. I am a major fan of the Shindaiwa family. Hope this helps.

    I can only compare Shindaiwa vs Stihl and the Shindaiwas are way better. I have had starting problems with all my Stihl stuff and only had to do basic maintance on my Shindawia equipment.

    EB212 it way too small and no power. You don't want to get anything less than 27cc. This blower has Echo written all over it, not that it is bad, just small. If you like Shindy, look at the EB3410. I have that one and I like it.
