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.

Don't buy Harbor Freight Thunderbolt Magnum batteries!
VWestlife


Published on Dec 12, 2017
...or if you do, watch them like a hawk. The Harbor Freight alkaline batteries in this portable radio went from working perfectly fine to totally dead and badly leaking acid in just a few months. Their "Heavy Duty" zinc chloride batteries may be even more prone to leaking... while I have Duracell batteries from the 1990s that are still working.

p.s. How do you want to bet this video will be demonetized just because I wrote "dead" and "acid" in the description?

Perfect example why I use Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries for pretty much all of the gizmos I own now.
Crap batteries can ruin a beloved metal detector or flashlight in no time.
You can get ultimate lithium batteries for cheap on ebay if you hunt for them and buy in bulk.
Here is a great lot I snagged a week or so ago. These expire in 2037.

Workmate 425 vs Worx Pegasus
John Taylor


Published on Dec 13, 2017
In this video we will take an in-depth look at both the Workmate 425 and Worx Pegasus workbenches. Having produced more than 50 videos on the Workmate I must admit I had a bias going into this project. However, having spent some time working with the Pegasus in the production of this video I must say that I am impressed with the capabilities of the Pegasus. We will take a close look at such things as set-up and take-down, specifications, clamping capabilities and more. So, let's get started...

EGO 21-Inch 56Volt SNT2100 Snow Blower Review
A Concord Carpenter / ToolBoxBuzz


Published on Dec 29, 2017
FULL REVIEW:
http://www.toolboxbuzz.com/lawn-garde...

EGO has always impressed me as an outdoor power equipment [OPE] platform. I own an EGO lawnmower, string trimmer chainsaw and blower.

The EGO line offers most of the tools you need to maintain an entire yard. I look at the EGO tools as a well-engineered platform that solves problems for me outdoors. I’ve also found many other construction related uses for the EGO blower.

The EGO platform, is a compete OPE platform that completely eliminates the hassle of gas, oil, fumes, noise, and a pull cord.

DELTA 26 2250 12" Dual Bevel Sliding CRUZER Miter Saw
A Concord Carpenter / ToolBoxBuzz


Published on Dec 22, 2017
http://www.toolboxbuzz.com/power-tool...


Delta 26-2250 12 in. Dual Bevel Sliding Cruzer Miter Saw
The folks at Delta are working hard to get back into the game. They recently introduced the brand new CRUZER miter saws.

The CRUZER has a unique, robot-like arm that allows the saw to perform similar to a sliding miter saw. Similar to the Bosch Axle Glide saw the CRUZER is unique to say the least.
Robot-Like Arms

The CRUZERS robot-like arms are constructed of military-grade aluminum and we found them super SMOOTH! The CRUZER arm design folds, rather than slides, as you move the saw-head back and forth.

Cutting Capacity

Maximum: 1.5 in. X 17.25 in. (2 X 18 lumber)
Miter 0° / Bevel 0°: 3.5 in. X 13.25 in. (4 X 14 lumber)
Miter 0° / Bevel 45°: 1.5 in. X 13.25 in. (2 X 14 lumber)
Miter 45° / Bevel 0°: 3.5 in. X 9.25 in. (4 X 10 lumber)
Miter 45° / Bevel 45°: 1.5 in. X 9.25 in. (2 X 10 lumber)
Baseboard (Vertical): 6.5 in. (maximum cutting depth)
Crown (Nested): 7.5 in.

Comparing Snow Plow Setup's - Straight Vs V-Blade - Regular Cab Vs SuperCrew | Hanging w/ Alex Lica
Brian's Lawn Maintenance


Published on Jan 1, 2018
Alex Lica and I got some Bdubs today and we decided to shoot a fun video for you guys comparing different plow setup's. We wanted to do a video comparing different snow plows, and talking about the difference between the straight blade vs v-blade, and regular cab vs a supercrew.

I know a lot of guys use a LOT of different brands out there when it comes to snow removal and getting the job done. We just wanted to show you guys our setup's, and what we're running this year. Hopefully give you guys some ideas and different perspectives if you're going to jump in to the snow game!

Big shoutout to Alex Lica for being a good sport on this one and eating an insane amount of wings with me. Make sure you guys give him a follow on Instagram @LicaLawnLandscapeLLC

What do you guys run for snow equipment? Boss, Western, Fisher? Regular Cab's, SuperCrew's? Ford Superduty's, or Chevy 2500's? Let me know, love to hear your guy's set up and what you're running in 2017-18!

Just because so many people have been watching these snow videos and following us, here is the Amazon link if you guys want to pick up the Falcon 18" light bar.
