    shindaiwa put up info on their web site for the eb8510.

    http://www.shindaiwa.com/products/blowers/eb8510.html

    762 cfm at the end of the tube. Up to 224mph with the optional tube end, however that must drop cfm. The difference between either a shin. eb630 and a redmax 7001 to the redmax 8000 is 10% more air. Then the new eb8510 is blowing out an additional 10% to the redmax 8000. The stihl br600 is rated at 712 cfm and the eb8510 is 7% more powerful than that in cfms. Has anyone had the chance to test one of these or know what price they are?

    My friend bought one 2 weeks ago. He says more powerful than the 8000 and quieter.It's been blowing leaves all day, everyday and doing well.

    Couple of things to point out:
    A) It is a four stroke....
    B) One year commercial warranty....
    C) What the #*$^ is hush mode?

    Oh god watch out, its all of 2 lbs heavier then a stihl, its junk.

    (sarcasm)

    Thats a powerful blower. It goes to prove my point that the stihl pipe is less effiecent then the redmax/shind pipe.

    being that its a 4 stroke is enough to keep me away.
