Is the impellar plastic or metal?

Asked by: John
Metal for the most part. Plastic on the very ends.

Where is the opening to empty the bag. Is it at the back so can be emptied into leaf bag easily?

Asked by: Anonymous
The bag is kind of long and narrow, with a zipper at the end. I find that the leaves get stuck in there. The zipper should have been put on the bottom instead.

165 MPH 391 CFM Gas Shredder Vacuum is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 279.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bring it on! Bought this unit for new house purchase. Yard was a mess with tons of leaves and debris. Works excellent to move leaves and debris around and pile up. Then switch to vac and shred and it does a great job of shredding leaves to be added to the compost pile. Bag is handy and easy to empty. Starts easy and runs well but takes a few minutes to get fully up to speed. Otherwise it runs great! I have an Echo chainsaw purchased in 1989 that still runs flawlessly,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MAYBE ONE LITTLE THING I OVERLOOKED IN THE MANUAL!!! I've had this leaf blower and vacuum for a y... MAYBE ONE LITTLE THING I OVERLOOKED IN THE MANUAL!!! I've had this leaf blower and vacuum for a year. Has started every time on first pull after the choke. Was using it to vacuum leaves and afterward returned the blower pipe to the unit. Later went to start it and wouldn't start. Read manual and checked all things that could happen. After taking it to local store and sending it to Atlanta and 4 weeks later I am told the screw on the cage that houses the blade for vacuuming the leaves has to be TIGHTLY SCREWED. The manual says it will not start if the pipe for vacuum is not placed correctly BUT DOES NOT SAY (after using the vacuum BE SURE TO TIGHTEN THE SCREW BACK TIGHT ON THE CAGE. Cost $20 and time I needed to use the blower. It is a good blower but it's the little things you don't know. Also came back without the blower extension.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I've ever had. I bought this Echo blower two months ago, by far the best piece of equipment as far as blowers I've ever bought. Starts first pull, and runs excellent. I also own a Echo weed eater, also a great piece of equipment, with my old craftsmen blower and weed eaters I had to take breaks because they would wear my wrists and arms out. With the Echo equipment I work my entire yard without stopping. Extremely happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool My echo leaf blower is not only great for blowing applications but also great for shreading leaves in the yard and cleaning out flower beds. I feel that echo makes some of the best multi purpose lawn tools with PAS series and shred and vac series. If your looking for something that is light weight and and has plenty of power look no further then then the ES-250 or 255 shred n vac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Leaf/Blower For The Money Purchased this last fall (2016) to replace an echo leaf/blower I had for several years. We have "tons" of large leaves from a huge horse chestnut tree every fall. This blower/vac works just super with blowing the leaves in piles and then vacuuming them up. Couldn't be more happier with the performance. Highly recommend this unit for the homeowner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful I love this chain saw. With the 20" bar and 59 CC motor, it easily cuts through the big stuff. It does not bog down at all. The back pressure valve is a nice feature. I would highly recommend. Just one thing, if it runs out of gas, it's hard to start the first time. If you fill it before it runs dry, it fires right up first pull every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality I have been shopping around for a new leaf blower to replace the cheap Chinese junk I bought from the big box discount store. I decided to go with Echo, and it is the best decision I could have made. Runs great, and the vacuum is awesome. Love this machine. Trust me, spend a little more and don't waste your money on cheap Chinese junk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great We live under some large Live Oaks. Every year the leaves are over whelming. This year I bought the Echo ES-250 and the leaves became a breeze. (Pun intended) The reason I picked this machine is that I also have a trimmer made by Echo which has also been great
