What is the best blower on the market?

What have you used, tried, hate, love, etc?

2 stroke or 4 stroke?

Husqvarna 580bts once you use one you will NEVER pick up any brand ever again.
I got a echo is it is reliable but lacks power. i had a stihl br 600 once and it was a piece a junk.
Redmax is good but i prefer husqvarna 2 stroke only for me.

Thanks Jake. Used a BR600 recently myself, but not ever used anything else. Was looking at the Dolmar 4 stroke. They are so quiet.

Don't worry about cgrahma1, not the first post he's tried to one up someone. Didn't provide any valuable input to the post, just here to run up his number of total posts.

I have a br320 that is over 10 years old. Perfect for the typical blowing off the walkway, porch or driveway. Very easy to maneuver.

Have a redmax 8000, very strong!! Moves a lot of air. It's nothing to blow 30 to 40 feet in front of you. It is a little cold natured,gets heavy and is not always necessary.

Guess it depends on what size you want, what dealer support you have.

I use to run a handheld in my left hand, run the backpack from my right hand. But then I bought the redmax.

I have a Stihl 420 that I have had for 15 years or more. Reliable, old and ugly. my next blower will be a husq 580.

better buy lead boots to keep yourself from blowing away with the 580.

the only downfall to this blower is you better keep 5 gallon of mix handy because they drink gas.
