Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by aradam2978 Found the secret to make this run better and move more air
Now this may void any warranties, but my last Echo blower is 20 yrs old and still runs, I wanted something newer and easy starting as soon as I got this home it made me mad full throttle it didnt have have much go power or blowing power it worked but wasnt like my old one, pulled carb off made sure butterfly was opening all the way and it was, after 15-20 minutes of looking it over i noticed a stack of metal plates over exhaust port took off the 5 screws and found a restriction plate removed and put back together and started it up and man this thing woke up and works awesome it did increase exhaust noise a small amount but it works awesome now i will also show plate i removed

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Daniel The best DIY blower for around the house!
Great blower for around the house and yard. I do my gutters with this unit. Usually I use a mulcher blade on my riding mower and need to followup with the blower to breakup and spread out cutting. Work well very satisfied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Moe Echo is the best, bar none
This is just one tool from Echo that I own I also have the their Shred n Vac, and gas trimmer straight shaft. They are the best lawn tools you can have, I tried other brands and they just don't last or get the job done.
Stick with a winning team"Echo" is one!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jay Nice unit. Could use a little more power
Comes ready to add gas and go. Started first pull and worked well. Not quite as much wind power as I expected but got the job done just fine. Great price value and Echo's engine quality is top notch based on my other Echo products and how long they have lasted.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by marlene great product
started right up, and works great. I had the same one that I bought probably 15 years ago, and bought this one because the old one finally wore out. It was cheaper to buy a new one than have the old one repaired. This one is a little bit lighter than the old one and quieter, but works the same.Nice that it is lighter and quieter! Feels about the same, still solid. I am happy with it so far. I have to figure out the blow tube a bit better, as I think I didnt get it on there correctly so the end fell off, but I am sure it will be fine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sean Rock Solid, Top Notch Quality 165 MPH 391 CFM 25.4cc Low Noise Handheld Gas Leaf Blower
Echo products are quality products built to last. The last echo leaf blower I owned was 10 years old used in a professional lawn care service with a 1000 plus hours on it. I just recently purchased this leaf blower and already I'm impressed with it. I've always been and Echo fan boy, my entire line of lawn care equipment, from the hedge trimmer, leaf blower, weed trimmer, chainsaw is all Echo brand. Rock solid products built to compete with any brand out there.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stupendous Works Great - READ THE MANUAL!
I read the manual and discovered two things I didn’t see in other reviews before purchasing. 1) Use 89 octane or higher (Regular isn’t enough) which may contain up to 10% ethanol. The pre-mix sold at Home Depot is 50:1, ethanol-free, 93 octane. 2) Allow engine to warm up for 3 minutes before use then gradually depress throttle to increase RPM. I really like this blower so far. The tank holds about 1/8 gallon so I bought 1 gallon of premium and mixed with Echo oil. I have used about 2 tanks every 3 weeks. I use the warm up time to clean my rock and barkdust areas since this blower is powerful enough to move some rocks at full throttle.
