    The Redmax handheld blower is a really nice unit.

    BG85 here as well. I researched and found at the time, a few years ago, it had the highest cfm output of any. Use PREMIUM fuel for your mix though, otherwise they are very bad in the summer heat if your area allows ethanol in the regualr unleaded fuels.

    I also have a stihl that I now keep for backup, had it for several years. Liked the echo BP better than the stihl BP though.

    Must check out a Tanaka THB2510. Awesome and powerful lightweight workhorse. ProForce series.
    Stihl BG85 would be a mainstay in my building also. Can never have too many air blasting machines.
