Rated 3 out of 5Â by freshprince94 Great Alternative to a Handheld
Echo's PB-265 is a great unit for homeowners or LCOs (Lawn Care Operators) just starting out. I use the PB-265 in my lawn service and it has great power for light to moderate loads of grass and is much better than it's handheld counterparts. However, it dosen't do a very good job with leaf cleanups (I have only attempted one ; I don't offer cleanups but it seemed underpowered) or big piles of grass. It is much better than a handheld unit though, which is what many start-up LCOs and homeowners use. Overall, I give it 3 stars; it does what it is designed to do.

"This blower when i first bough it about 6 months ago for my lawn care buisness was the highes rated backpack blower there was, once purchased however using for blowing out driveways after cutting the lawns it worked fine. Furthermore i praised it and it's ability to small grass clipings and leaves. How ever when i started doing my fall clean ups i was terribly dissapointed in it's ability to move leaves effectively. I was finding that i was having to use it at full throttle all the time just to move them, which in turn used large amonuts of gas not cost or time effective at all. In conclusion if u are planning on buying this model i would recomend u to reconsider. My next blower will be the next more powerful one, and hopefully it meets up to my expectations."

I would recommend this ECHO's PB265L Model blower to the average home owner, this blower works great for leaves and even small rocks, its lite weight and eazy to use,starts eazy and eazy to store.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Handylady235 First Blower and I Love it!
It was hard to get started the very first time, but once I got it started me and my Boyfriend fought for over an hour as to whose turn it was to use it! Its lite, not too noisy, and powerful!
I would never think of cleaning a yard anyother way! The only problem I have found using it is that the hose tends to fall off from time to time. But it works well, and we love love love it!

The blower is the best. Easy to use, light enough for the ladys to use. Very quiet while running. And most important is that it was very easy to start. The price was fair. I would recommend this for anyone. So go out and get one. You will be glad you did.Gilbert Az
