I am not a lawn pro, just a homeowner with an acre of property with some massive Red Oaks. I'd like to cut my raking down because of a bad leg. I have narrowed my choices between a Shindaiwa EB630 and an Echo PB650. On paper they look pretty close in performance and in price, so the question is, which is the better built machine? I was considering the big Redmax as well, but dealers are to far away.
