Rated 4 out of 5 by Echo shred n Vac The echo shred n vac provides good vacuum for small to medium sized yards. The main problem is the bag attachment. It's supposed to slide over the main extension outlet pipe. The bag has Velcro bands for Closing in around the lock collar however I had to secure it with duck tape. After shaking the bag of its contents the duct tape would loosen and bag easily comes off. Had to return the product for this reason. It would be beneficial if there was a switch for blowing leafs and then switch to vacuuming the leafs. If you have more than an acre of yard it is best to get a DR vacuum container coupled to your lawn deck mulching mower. October 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just What I Need I have a 2 acre homestead planted with lots of trees. Two years ago, several of my established water oaks were infested with girdlers. These beetles lay their eggs in leave stems then girdle the stems. The stems fall onto the ground; the eggs ultimately develop into girdling beetles and infect other trees. There is no chemical which will kill these beetles. One can only pick up the fallen leaves and stems to interrupt the girdlers' life cycle and discard them to minimize future infestations. The Echo gas powered blower/vacuum gives me the tool to quickly vacuum and discard the infected stems. The Echo has plenty of power as a vacuum & blower. When not using the Echo as a vac, I use it as a blower to clean my garage.I had an electric plug in power/vac prior to the purchase of my Echo but was it proved too inefficient and cumbersome for the size of my property.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Powerful Blower for a Handblower Very powerful compared to other hand blowers. A bit on the heavy side after about 30 minutes. Startup is great. It's kinda loud for the neighbors but not a problem for me. The vacuum part is a bonus since we have hedges now, you can suck the trimmings up in the bed without having to blow them out later.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent quality I purchased this product at the recommendation of a local mower repair shop, as well as a little bit of experience using a borrowed echo product. The quality is some of the best that I've had to use in all of my lawn equipment. Pros: well engineered, extremely well-built, excellent quality, low noise, very good gas consumption, and adequate CFM for this model. Cons: doesn't start quite as easily as some of my other equipment. But to be fair I've only started it three times now. This is also a one-handed unit and could use an extra handle for those long periods of Leaf blowing and or mulching. Not to say that it is heavy but I did find myself switching arms quite often. All in all this is an excellent product and I highly recommend it as far as the use that I've gotten out of it so far. December 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by ECHO Gas Blower/Vac This is an EXCELLENT machine that can handle any job it is needed for. We bought it specifically for the metal shredder (almost every other brand is PLASTIC) and it far outperformed anything we thought. We mulched 6 of our 30 gallon trash bags of leaves in less than 5 minutes per bag. Our original vac/shredder model by TORO is plastic and the shredder has so many dings from twigs that it takes hours to properly shred. Also, the large suction tube is awesome. Our old model I had to keep unclogging the tube as it would pack up. The TORO brand will probably last just as a blower for my kids to help out. May 2, 2011
