If you have the money Red Max is the most powerful and haven't heard any complaints about them yet. I'm sure there are a couple of people out there that have their stories about them. I also like Stihl (quite a few complaints though), Husky (no complaints), Kawasaki (no complaints), Echo (lots of complaints). You may want to do a search on blowers. I'm sure you'll find a lot of info. on them here. Heck, I used a Homelite backpack blower for almost 6 years 'til it finally quit on me this season. Not bad for a $99 buy. I know a lot of guys consider that scab equipment, but you have to do what's in your budget. I use a Stihl now, but miss my old Homelite now and again.

Was at my dealer this morning.

The Echo 750 blows more air than the Redmax 7001. I didn't have much of a chance to talk to the mechanics about it.

Didn't want to take up to much of their time seeing how I got taken care of very well for the reason I went..........:D

The Red Max EB7001 blows more than the Echo 650, not by much but it does blow more. It is also a full 3 lbs lighter weight with a much much larger air filter. 3 lbs adds up in the coarse of a day. Red Max builds the Schindiawa 650 moldel, good unit. Do yourself a favor and ask a dealer to gas up a Red Max and demo it.

I have one Stihl BR 320 and one Redmax EB 4300. Personally, I like the redmax better. Both good blowers, but my redmax starts with less trouble and doesnt take as long to warm up. Redmax EB 7000 is the strongest one Ive used, so I think its one of the best

I just picked up an echo pb-750 after my pb-650 was stolen. The only real difference between the 2 is the tube mounted throttle, and the very large air filter that looks very similiar to the redmax 7001. Both the 650&750 have the same cfm rating, although the 750 seems to be slightly more powerful than the 650.

I am in the market for a wheeled blower, the nearest little wonder dealer is 25 miles from me and will not quote any prices over the phone.
Does any one know the price range ? Thanks

Nice try. Don't ever trust a mfg.'s (or their sales reps) listed weights....weigh them yourself to get the true weight. As far as power, read the following thread:
