    i had a br400 stihl and loved it, but that got stolen, so i replaced it with the br420. i am not very satisfied with it. i think it has less power than the old 400 and isnt impressing me much. ive run the echo 650 and that will blow away the stihl. i havent tried redmax, but i hear they are pretty powerful too.

    I have got a old stihl br400, redmax eb7001, and echo pb650. the redmax is my favorite, the stihl is not in use anymore, my neighbor has it to blow his driveway off.

    the wind speed on the 260 is 155mph max. The 650 must be about 200mph huuh?
