thing def moves some debris and leaves can’t wait to run a few more tanks through it

This blower is listed as a Redmax 8500 clone, however I believe this blower to be a Husqavarna 580BTS Mark ii clone. The build quality is excellent the only parts that concern me are the recoil assembly and the mounting bracket for the trigger assembly. I have put about 10hrs on the blower so far and the trigger assembly will slip from the position it is in to the next notch at times I think larger splines would fix this so I may eventually have to replace with an OEM trigger housing and bracket. Other than that the blower is comfortable to wear and runs great I made a small adjustment to the carb as it was running a little lean out of the box. The blower has plenty of power and can handle a decent pile of wet leaves no problem. I have a Stihl BR-600 and the build quality is a more premium feel but this blower out blows my Stihl no question.
