Weight to Power Ratio: B+

This backpack has essentially the same motor as the Redmax 7001, which is an excellent motor. It is lightweight and has very good power. Although it is not the most powerful backpack blower out there, it is still adequate.

Comfort: B+

Very comfortable. With a weight of about 20lbs, its still boasts very good power.

Durability: A

These blowers last a long time. They seem to fade away rather than break. Very hard to kill. Remember, they are a 2-stroke engine, so use mix only and this blower will last.

Ease of Start: A

A basic 2-cycle engine. Starts and warms up quickly. If it does not start quickly, there is something wrong—check spark plug or you may have flooded it.

Value for Money: B+

Usually sells for $400-500 depending on location. Excellent value since it lasts a long time.
