This will be to compliment the BR600. My son loves to take the BR600 and clear out some leaves, having a 2nd hand is surely welcome. I love the BR600 for it's break-out force but has lost it's edge to the more powerful competition.....still a competent blower. I was looking at the Echo PB 8010 and the BR800.....I really wish Stihl would stop messing around and release a blower with 1100+ CFM while keeping the air speed where it is...or more. I don't care if it's heavy, just want them to get ahead of the game. The Echo is more powerful on paper, but many say the Stihl is far more comfortable. Is the Echo worth the extra 160 ish CFM? Will be using it mainly for leaves and we get a lot. Stuck in around tree lines and bushes, so a walk-behind is out. I would like to see Stihl come out with a BR900 with 240 MPH / 1200CFM...not sure if a newer model is in the works though. So for those that have used the BR600.....should I go with the BR800 or PB8010? I'm after the power, don't care about the price at the moment....if I have to cough up $500 then I will have to pay to play. I don't mind the extra $$ if it lasts..the BR600 is going strong after 12 years....knock on wood.
