Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 39 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by easy I had a handheld echo blower and it was great for 10 years. This is more powerful and the backpack design is so much easier. July 10, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Blower for the money! I purchased a Ryobi leaf blower last year and it was a big disappointment. This ECHO, blows the Ryobi away. Whether wet or dry leaves, this blower will do the job. I have over 1.25 acres and it worked very well at all tasks. I would recommend this blower to anybody thats on a limited budget. GREAT BL0WER!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Good Blower, but PB-500H a Better Buy I have had several Echo tools in the past and all have run well as long as you maintain them (don't leave old gas in the tank for over a month, etc). I purchased the 265 for my 3/4 acres of trees due to the brand and it being a backpack blower. Ran very well and lightweight. However, I decided to take it back and get the PB-500H for $50. The larger blower has twice the motor and is much more powerful. Yes, it weighs 10lbs more, but the difference in power more than makes up for this. In all, the 265 is a fine blower but many handhelds actually are more powerful. For expected performance and reduced time, I would recommend spending the extra $50 on the step up PB-500H.

Rated 1 out of 5 by starts easy,lightweight,low power This unit stared on 2nd pull cold is lightweight and is built for very lightweight use. I have a hand held electric weed eater I bought while living in 5th wheel at rv park I bought for 29.95 4 years ago and the leaf blowing abilty is very close to equal. Anyone buying this unit for anything other than a small yard and only wanting to blow dry leaves should go to one of the larger cc units. I was so disappointed in the perfofmance for the money I only ran 1 tank of fuel to empty it to clean it up to take it back to home depot and get a larger one.It runs and looks great but that doesn't get the work done! I do have a large yard about 2 acres. October 7, 2011
