    a good backpack blower can be just as important as anew mower.
    you use it at each property that you mow and maintain. in my opinion the best blower on the market is the Redmax eb7001.
    it is a little expensive, but well worth every penny.(475.00-550.00) depending on the dealer.

    Echo PB650. Although they just came out with the 750. Looks like they just changed the air cleaner though. :cool:

    I have run the shindaiwa, redmax, stihl. the most powerful is the 650 and 750 from echo. the 750 is the same as the 650 except for tube mounted throttle. we have two and want two more.

    You will probably be happy with any of the above options. I have an Echo 603 and do not see any need for more power other than my need for POWER. I had a handheld before I got the backpack and gave it to a friend. Every day I wish I had it back. It is much easier on small properties than the backpack. Consider getting one of those also. Good luck.

    I'm currently using the John Deere BP60's and they were new blowers for JD last spring. The blower cost should be approximately $450.00.
