Theres a guy across the street that has a mountain of redmax blowers he gets from work and rebuilds the engines. Hes offering one thats like brand new for 100 bucks. I dont know the model, all I know is its like 50cc and its in almost mint condition, starts on 1 pull. Sound like a good deal? If so, how much do you think its REALLY worth?

Well, I dono what to tell you, thats what it says on the side of the blower housing :rolleyes: It doesnt have a lot of air volume behind the push though. (Which i think they just said its 208 MPH for a selling point, but the impeler doesnt suck in enough air to push quanity out or something like that :confused: Didnt make it, dono.)

A TRASH PUMP is a pump that will handle leaves and larger derbis that most pumps cant. I do pond installs and stuff, and I also clean out ponds. Good money:D

The 43's are the smaller ones to the 700 or 7001's

not a bad blower. We had them, never did anything to them for a couple years, just kept starting and running. Then they finaly just died and never tried fixing them, went right into the 700's

the 43's series if I remember correctly they were about $340 or so.

This looks like a 6200 blower. They work great - they're the predecessor of the 7000 series. The only real difference is in the air filter system. I'll take 2 more if they come w/ a warranty and if they ship to NJ. Have 5 - 6200's 1 7000, 1 7001, 1 431 and a new h-held too

Well, I went back over to the guys house, and He had one left. I decided to buy it. He said he'd have more in a little later in the year. I got the last one in COMPLETELY NEW engine (including carb, filter, da whole shabang) for $120.00 on-my-back. He said that it was used for 28 hours before a guy decided to rev the engine RPMs up more that intended, and burnt the engine. Well, I have to say, the one I just bought today is in even better condition compared to the pic above! Man, I LOVE redmax:D
