Okay, I really want to snag a hand blower. There are many times a day I really need a hand blower for tight spots and for quick clean ups. The back is actually overkill for some jobs. Which should I get? I have my eye on shindaiwa or redmax. The eb240s or hbz2600/2601? Do the handheld redmax's have any problems with the stratocharged technology? I'm not a big fan of the ebz7001 back pack I have. Or is there another I shoud look at? Any input is appreciated. This blower will not replace the backpacks and is just for small jobs.
