Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jus1Sec Shockingly Powerful
I have used several different portable gas powered products, and this blower is everything that is described by Echo. The only issue that I have is the static electrical shock that I receive from the throttle handle. This shock is most likely attributed to the very dry climate, but nothing that any pair of gloves doesn't mitigate. The forced-air venting on the pack works very well to keep cool during operation, and the unit comes with a ventilation blocking adapter when needed in the colder months. It is as if you have a built-in air conditioner on your back while you work. The blower starts immediately and performs well overall.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Orchidlady This Echo gas backpack blower at 234 MPH will move anything!!
The Echo234 mph 765 cfm model # 202042971 gas backpack blower will clear a path through almost anything! Even a grove of live oak trees - which we have a lot of here in central Florida will clear in no time even if the leaves are wet. Love this - loads of power - easy to use - starts right up. This replaces a echo blower that we used for many years but we needed a back-up in case it quit. Needless to say we have put the old blower to use for the smaller spaces and use the big new one where power is needed. Not too heavy and started right up. Very easy assembly. LOVE IT!! Should have gotten it sooner.

I recently purchased a new home with a decent sized back yard. I only have 2 trees, but my neighbors have a bunch of different kinds of HUGE trees. With fall approaching I knew I needed a good blower. I was stuck between the pb770, and one model below. I'm SO glad I chose the top of the line.
This blower is like a jet engine attached to your back. It actually torques your whole body under full throttle (not in a bad way). The straps are comfortable, it starts on the second or third pull every time, and it's just awesome. The first time I used it and went full throttle I blew some grass and leaves from the back of my driveway all the way into the street, unintentionally! That's a good 50 feet! Such a powerful blower, I couldn't ask for more.
Will take a video next use if anyone is around to shoot it for me!

Easy to assemble, makes getting leaves gathered much easier - worth the money! I had a smaller blower & this was an upgrade, glad I found this one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cuntswaylow Blower actually saves fuel
This Blower is the baddest blower this side of the Mississippi (Not in California). I have a 6 HP blower on wheels and this blows its doors off. You have to wonder how much fuel is being wasted (With Wussy Greeny Blowers) because the same area has to be worked twice. Sometimes we are so smart we are stupid.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GB Awesome Blower!
Great blower, used it for moving massive amounts of acorns and worked great. Cut leaf removal time in half compared to my 6 year old Echo PB413T. My only regret is I didn't buy it sooner even though it's a little pricey at $499.
