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 1.0 out of 5.0 by yard Bad customer service
I have had the blower for 10 months when the starter cord assembly box broke. Echo sent me to a repair shop for the warranty work. It is a simple component swap and its going to take 30 days to replace! The repair facility put a $40 hold on my credit card! Echo could care less about using common sense and just sending me a new starter. My yard is a disaster! Echo does not care! I had a STIHL for 9 years before it finally broke down. Never again will I buy an ECHO product!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 01361 Cold Start Help
Just bought the Echo PB-250LN Power Blower and can't find the right sequence of operation to get it started. The Echo brand was recommended to me. I hope I'm not disappointed once I get it to operate.
Can someone reply with the right sequence on a cold start?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RickSr Good little blower.
This unit replaced and old Troy Bilt backpack blower, It's easier to use but seems to need to warm up a couple of minutes first. Other than the warm-up it's fine. I use the canned fuel, much better than mixing pump gas.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CamMan Warranty is about as good as the paper it's written on!
I use this blower sparingly had it 2 years, and after my wife used it, I noticed the throttle was stuck. I visually inspected it, and noticed the adjustment screw was higher than the throttle body. I took a wrench and loosened the nut 1/2 turn and realized this was not the issue. I brought it in to an echo service center, and was promptly told since I touched that nut it was no longer warrantied. What a bunch of you know what! i was told it needed a carburetor which is not covered under the Echo warranty. I was quoted $75 labor + ~$30 for parts.......! I refuse to pay 70% of the price for a new one just to fix this pile of manure. So much for the 5 year warranty!!!! That warranty isn't worth the paper it's printed on. I will never purchase or recommend another Echo product ever!

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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ghostly Finally one that lasts more than 1 season!
A little heavier than expected, but not overly.
The extension has a tendency to vibrate off.
