    for past seven years been running first the redmax 7000 ,
    then most recent couple years the redmax 7001 and theyve
    all been ' GREAT ' = low maintenance / dependable , easy
    starting , rugged / long lasting design , and mega powerful .

    right now im down on their new strato charged / leaned down
    weed whippers which arent as good as their pre strato charged
    stuff imo , but we just bought a new 7001 blower this spring
    and its just as good as the old 7000 .

    Just step up to the BR420 and you will have another great reliable unit.

    Stihl 600 vote for me. Light and comfort. Satisfied every time I use mine. Valve bugs should be worked out by now. End of the day though it's going to be up to you.
