Simple backpack design allows for quick backyard cleanup.

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Echo Leaf Blower:

I love this leaf blower. It is extremely light in weight, and you do not even feel as if you are doing work when cleaning out the yard and gutters. It has a backpack design, so you do not have to carry it in your hands for several minutes on end, but can rather keep it on your back, and only use the blower in one hand to get rid of leaves. It has an extremely powerful blower; you do not have to worry about leaves not being blown away, or low power settings, this machine can pump out high air velocity, even on the lowest setting when in use. It is also perfect for any sized yard. We have a relatively large yard, and it only takes about five minutes to clear out, and collect leaves to be collected when I use this leaf blower to clean up outside. It has a simple on/off toggle, safety feature so it won't blow unless it is on your back, and it is extremely easy to use as well. It is a durable, well built product, and makes yard clean up a cinch.

Weight
Very light in weight, allows you to do yard work in a fraction of the time.

What a difference

By 

from USA

Comments about Echo Leaf Blower:

Typically raking or blowing leaves in the fall is exhausting and no fun at all. I can honestly say the Echo leaf blower makes cleaning up my yard a breeze. I really love keeping my yard looking tide and this particular leaf blower does an excellent job. I love that you can cary most of the weight of this leaf blower on your back. It is very lightweaight and very convenient to wear while sprucing up. I also really like that the engine does not turn off by itself. I had a problem with my last leaf blower that it kept turing off but this particular one works really well. I did spend a little bit of extra money on this particular model, but it really does save time and pain in the long run. I would highly reccomend this particular leaf blower.

Weight
I really like that this leaf blower is lightweight. It is not awkward to carry around and it does a great job.

Performance
The performance is outstanding. I can always count on it getting the job done.

Handling
It does a great job of handling. I am really impressed with how well it does.

Ease of Use
This is so easy to use!

A light weight and powerful blower for medium sized jobs.

By 

from San Pedro, CA

Comments about Echo Leaf Blower:

This blower is great for medium sized jobs such as dry leaf's, light weight debris, dust and dirt but not quite enough for really big tasks. You'll need something a little stronger for wet yard waste or to coral larger debris items unless you don't mind a bit of raking. It is fairly well balanced and the control arm is easily accessible as is the blower arm but i would like to see a small improvement. A great on would be to some how incorporate a telescoping mechanism for the blower are to avoid the removable pieces but other than this idea, I'd say it will do most jobs effectively.

Weight
Again, it is light weight enough that most adults won't have any problem with using it but it may take one or two uses to get accustomed to use. It is a little different process than a hand held blower plus it being on your back will take time to adjust as well.

Performance
Perfect for medium sized jobs.

Handling
Once you've gotten use to the difference in a back pack blower, you'll wonder why every one doesn't have on because of the flexibility it offers. For example, if you suddenly need to use a rake or broom in a specific area, the blower can stay in position and after the side job, continue with your main project. No need to shut it off and set it down and re start and pick it up again so it will also save you some valuable time.

Ease of Use
I really would like to see a telescoping blower arm instead of the removable sections but with that exception, very nice. In fact, I find myself looking for something else to use it on because I'm never as tired as when using a hand held version.

Durability
Very well built and with proper maintenance and cleaning, it will last you a while.

Perfect!

By 

from USA

Comments about Echo Leaf Blower:

This leaf blower is perfect. I purchased mine for a use other than blowing leaves however. I use mine mainly for the drying of motorcycles after a wash or rainstorm. (I really hate water spots on my paint!) I use this at least every couple of weeks and have used it to blow leaves as well. I do find that it is easy to use. It is not difficult to start and not hard to carry (I'm a girl!). I even kind of enjoy using this thing. I can see the water flying off my bikes and know that it is doing its job. My husband found out about drying bikes this way through a bike cleaning technician at a Harley Davidson dealership around eight years ago and in that time this is our third leaf blower. This one has lasted longer and far outperforms either of the others by far. (The first was a Black and Decker, the second was a YardMan). I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for one. It is well worth its purchase price and depending on your retailer it may come with a warranty. Mine did however I do not expect to ever have to use it. All said and done I would repurchase this product a hundred times.

A good model to upgrade to!

By 

from Liberty, KY

Comments about Echo Leaf Blower:

After we got tired of our other model leaf blowers that were corded and didn't seem to have a lot of power, we finally upgraded to a back pack type that allowed us more maneuverability and ease of use. We didn't have to worry about cord length, and could go all over our property with no problems. And after a while, we didn't even realize the pack was on our back.

Weight
It's a little heavy, but after a time you get used to it. The fact that you don't have to worry about a cord and you have more flexibility more than makes up for its added weight.

Performance
Works very, very well. Has high output and blows very strongly.

Handling
Just as easy to handle as a regular corded model, but you don't have to worry about tangling yourself with the cord, stepping on it, tripping on it, accidentally disconnecting it, or not being able to reach all the areas of your yard that you want. This model really frees you up to do what you want with it, and it handles easily. Adjustment are easy to make and at your finger tips. We find this is very responsive and easy to use.

Ease of Use
Very easy.

Durability
Good so far. Hope it lasts a long time!

Echo make's the best leaf blowers.

By 

from Blackwell, OK

Comments about Echo Leaf Blower:

I love the echo leaf blower. It's powerful, and starts every time. Not only this, but I know echos last a long time. I recommend this echo to anyone looking for a great leaf blower!

Weight
It's a little on the heavy side, but you have to expect that with the type of power this leaf blower cranks out.

Performance
This leaf blower handles excellently. This is our second echo, and because the first one was such a great device, we bought another one. The echo starts fast every time, it's very powerful which I need with as many yards as I do.

Handling
Very easy handling, it's a little heavy however.

Ease of Use
Easy to use, and it's easy to start. It starts within the first 3 or 4 pulls on average, which in my opinion is quick for any device that you have to start in this fashion.

Durability
This leaf blower can handle at least a dozen yards a week, as that's how many we do on average. It's very powerful and very durable. This is our second echo leaf blower. The first one we owned lasted for over 10 years, so I know this will last a while.

BEST BLOWER

By 

from USA

Comments about Echo Leaf Blower:

ECHO BY FAR MAKES THE BEST HANDHELD YARD EQUIMPMENT OUT THERE. THIS BLOWER IS SPECTACULAR. IT LASTS LONGER THAN MOST OTHER SMALL ENGINE BLOWERS THAT I HAVE USED. ECHO ALSO SELLS SPECTACULAR WEEDEATERS. THIS BLOWER HAS LOTS OF POWER AND FITS NICELY ON MY BACK. NO MORE BACK PAIN FROM BENDING OVER ALL DAY BLOWING LEAVES. FYI: LOOK ONLINE FOR GAS STATIONS IN YOUR AREA WITH ETHANOL FREE GAS. THIS GAS WILL MAKE YOUR BLOWER LAST A LOT LONGER. AS MUCH AS VE USED THESE SMALL ENIGINE BLOWERS AND WEEDEATERS, FREQUENT USE WITH ETHANOL GAS WILL MESS UP YOUR BLOWERS QUICKLY. FANTASTIC BLOWER!

Awesome Leaf BLower

By 

from Evington, VA

Comments about Echo Leaf Blower:

After having two hand held gas leaf blowers and one electric leaf blower, a backback blower is worth the expense. The area that I live has lots of trees. With a hand held electric blower and a rake it was taking more than 12 hours a week to clear the leaves. With the gas hand held I got it down to about half that and with the backpack blower I now can do it in under 3 hours.

The backpack is heavier and very noisy and ear protection is a necessity. I have learned that it is easiest to start the backpack blower then sit it on the tailgate of a truck to get it on your back. Also since it holds about a half a gallon of gas it will run for about an hour before needing to be refueled so when blowing a lot of leaves it pays to save your back where you can.

Only downsides I can see are price and getting in close around shrubery. A backpack blower is very difficult to get between the house and shrubs to blow leaves back into the yard.

great product must have for your yard

By 

from Loxahatchee, FL

Comments about Echo Leaf Blower:

This is a great product. We are actually on our 2nd echo, the first one we had for 10-15 years and used it weekly. At one point my husband used it for his lawn care business so it was used alot.

I would definatly recommend this product to anyone. You won't buy any other brand after this one.
