I have a RedMax 4401. I purchased it when they were owned by Komatsu. They are now owned by Husqvarna. Also, from my research, RedMax has always made the Husqvarna blowers. I was originaly looking for a Sthil but my local power equpment dealer sold me on the RedMax. I did look at HD but noticed that their line of blowers was not as well made. I would never buy one from HD. Find a local equipment dealer and go there.
