The blower appeared to be constructed well but had very poor power for it's size. Very heavy also!

Nice product. Battery life is a tiny bit weak, but overall not a bad tool to use to blow off after mowing. Not sure how it would fare if you were to use it for fall cleanup?

Easy to use and does the job. The gasoline powered machine were just messy to use, inconvenient and polluting. Echo did well with this product. I compared it with other brand and found Echo the best value for the power. Very very pleased with the product

14 minute run time on a fully charged battery is not good! Echo is shipping me a new battery will see if this helps.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Matthew Works good
As long as you have reasonable expectations as far as battery life is concerned this blower is extremely convenient and has quite a bit of power about the same as smaller gas powered ones. Works great for cleanup around the house after mowing and also works great to clean up the garage it beats sweeping all the dust and dirt plus you dont have to worry about fumes in enclosed spaces. That being said if you use full speed the 2ah battery drains pretty quick but you would be surprised how good it works on lower speeds. You could also do what I do and get the electric trimmer and use that battery instead as its a 4ah battery and charges quickly. Overall for small jobs this thing is great for larger jobs you will want to invest in the 4ah battery.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TGRRAG Not great, but works reasonably well
I thought this would be equivalent to gas, but that's not quite the case. The overall size is large and the weight is heavy (especially with a big battery). To balance that, I expected gas like performance in terms of air flow and it's just not there. I've owned gas blowers for years and this one has too many compromises to not return to gas. Wet or soggy leaves won't move. Wet grass on the driveway won't budge unless right over top of it.
The run time is decent with the included battery, so that's a plus. However, it's too heavy, too big, and too underpowered.

Purchased the cordless blower at Home Depot yesterday (along with Echo 58-Volt4MAH weed trimmer). I have grown tired of mixing oil and gas, the noise, the fumes, and pulling on cords to start. So I sold my Echo gas weed trimmer and my RedMax gas blower and went all electric. For what it is, this Echo brushless cordless blower is excellent. It nowhere near compares to the gas blower I had, but I understood that going into it. I really only used my gas blower to blow off the sidewalk and the deck after mowing. It was overkill for what I used it for. So this Echo electric cordless blower fits the bill just fine. I used it this morning after weed eating and it was so nice not to have to strap on a heavy noisy gas blower after pulling four or five times, etc... It removed the grass from the sidewalk and the deck just fine. Another benefit that I really like from going electric is I can now use this blower to blow out my basement/garage whereas I could not with my gas powered blower. I can't tell you how it is for blowing leafs as I don't get a lot of leafs on my property and that has never been an issue/concern. However, for blowing off sidewalks, driveways, decks, it is a great tool. I do however wish that it came with the 4 MAH battery like the weed trimmer does, but I'm good on the 2 MAH battery. I will mention this, I purchased this unit yesterday - 06/02/2016 - and brought it home. When I took it out of the box the first thing that I noticed was the battery was missing. I took it back to the store and told them the battery was missing. They had a store associate bring another one to the returns counter. We opened it. Guess what? No battery in it either. They had one more left in stock. Luckily, it did have the battery in it. Based on this I would suggest if you purchase this blower that you have the cashier or a store associate open the box and make sure all the components are there - charger, battery, blower, and blower extension.

Good blower to use on your home for light work. Blower starts to feel heavy after 3 minutes of use. Would be nice if it came with a shoulder strap or anything to lighten the load for extended use. strong enough for home owner not enough for commercial yet. Out of all the 58v lineup. This is the only one that disappoints. Guess the technology isn't there yet for a powerfull professional grade battery powered blower.
