    Blower Wars 2.0!! | Leaf Test - Redmax 8500 vs STIHL BR700 vs ECHO 770T vs Maruyama BL 9000 Blowers
    Brian's Lawn Maintenance



    Published on Nov 8, 2017
    This time its Blower Wars 2.0!! We tested the Redmax 8500 vs the STIHL BR 700 vs the ECHO 770T vs the Maruyama BL9000 backpack blowers.

    Now these 4 blowers are all in the top of their category with highest rated CFM that each brand offers. This test was just a fun setup that we did this morning pitting the blowers against each other. None of the brands here sponsored this video or anything like that!

    I am curious what your guy's favorite brand is and what specific blower do you use for clean ups and leaves! Leave me a comment down below! Love to hear your guy's thoughts!

    What did you guys think of the Maruyama BL9000?
    Do you guys prefer the BR600 or the BR700 from STIHL?
    Do you guys think the Redmax 8500 is the best overall blower out?
    Do you guys like the ECHO 770t, but wish it had a tad more CFM?

    Also big shout out and thank you to my dealer Weingartz for letting me borrow the STIHL BR700 for this video!!

    Handheld Blower Battle - STIHL BG 50 vs ECHO PB-2520 | Which One Is Better?
    Brian's Lawn Maintenance



    Published on Nov 11, 2017
    We put the ECHO PB-2520 vs the STIHL BG 50 head to head in another handheld blower battle. Both the ECHO and the STIHL handheld blower performed great. Both handheld blowers pack a punch!

    I know there are few handheld blowers out there that folks really enjoy using, the STIHL BG 50 being one of them. Even though it is a home-owner model, it still performs strong. ECHO's new offering, the PB-2520, is comparable to the the STIHL. We did a quick match up to see which one performed best.

    Which one is your guy's favorite? Do you guys prefer ECHO or STIHL? Leave me a comment down below!

    What's My Favorite Equipment Brand? It May Surprise You, It's Not Who You Think | Business Mindset
    Brian's Lawn Maintenance



    Published on Dec 3, 2017
    Wanted to do a video on a fan submitted question, asking me what's my favorite brand. I wanted to weigh in on this topic because I see a lot of folks arguing out there about which brand is better overall.

    I see the back and forth all day long between ECHO and STIHL, Ford vs Chevy, Exmark vs Scag, and the list goes on and on. As long as the internet exists, I'm sure there will be endless keyboard warriors arguing in favor of their brand.

    Here was my attempt at shedding some light on this topic, and what brand is best for me. Enjoy.

    New SkilSaw Mag77 Worm Drive: Fixing what isn't broken?
    Essential Craftsman



    Published on Dec 5, 2017
    A unboxing and overview of the newest version of the SkilSaw Mag77 Worm Drive, the legendary circular saw that set the bar for portable power tools. Learn the basics of this tool here https://youtu.be/pWR5X5ZffTs

    I have a special connection to skilsaws since they have been one of my most important tools for the last 40 years as a builder. This saw has inspired dozens of copycat designs, many of which are fantastic. This is the first time I am handling and getting a look at the new generation of this legendary tool.

    AMAZON LINK TO THIS SAW
    http://amzn.to/2ioE8ht

    I will use this saw for the house build project, and give a full review of my experience with it after at have some miles on it.

    Yes - this saw is made in China - but that is nothing new. In fact, the Mag 77 i'm comparing this to in this video was also made in China, and it has been a great tool. I don't spend time in this video going through the transfer of manufacturing from the US to to China :( just tried to stay focused on the saw here.

    This is the Bosch version of the tool many of us know as a sawzall. A friend of mine was heavily using this when it died. Today, I’m tearing this open to see how well it’s made and if I can find why it failed.
