    Looking to buy a new Blower. Any suggestions? Handheld or Backpack?

    Hello, I am looking to purchase a blower mainly to blow clippings and possibly leafs this fall. I am looking for something that will do the job, that is all I need. Does anyone recomend any? I was just wondering if paying the extra money for the backpack style was worth it. Thanks for your thoughts .

    What is your budget? If you can afford to shell out about $500, I would invest my money in a Redmax EB 7001 Back pack blower. If you are trying to get out a little cheaper but still have a powerful unit, get an Echo pb 403 backpack. You can get one of them for $299. I have used both units and they are very nice. To me, it sounds like the 403 will serve your needs very well!

    Echo PB 750. Was the most powerful backpack blower ever built when I got mine. I still have it and it starts on the first or second pull always.
    I just point it at the driveways or walkways and it clears the whole area in a second.
    Leaf cleanup is a joy with this blower.

    Last year I got the Echo PB751t. It's the best blower I've ever used.Starts in 1 or 2 pulls,has all the power you will ever need and is very comfortable.Price was $450,and worth every penny and more.

    I am getting ready to trade in my hand held RedMax blower for a back pack. From what I have read and heard the best back pack out now is the RedMax 7001 Price is about $450.00 If you do not have a RedMax dealer in your area you can buy online, tax free and free shipping from: Just put RedMax in the search and it will pull up all the redMax equipment they have.

    Only way to go is the REDMAX EBZ 8000
