Been Told That there are problems with the EcHo Leafe Blowers

I have been shopping for a Leaf Blower and have been checking out the EcHo, other customers have told me that they have had problems with EcHo and would not by another as some of them have told me that they are junk and do not last, several of these people have had EcHo leaf blowers in the past. Do they have problems with EcHo or have they in the past.

What is the diffrence between models PB500H PB500CH PB500TC PB500T. On ECHO leaf blowers

Asked by: Anonymous
Pull up pictures of each model, you will see the differences, such as on one the throttle and kill switch is on the left and all on one control. On another model the throttle and kill switch are right hand controlled and two different switches. Most of the differences are insignificant personal preference items. Just my opinion, now don't go quoting me or anything.

why does the clearing power not coincide with the mph? Some models have a higher blowing speed, but less clearing power.

Asked by: Anonymous
Assume the engine and impeller output as a constant in terms of Cubic Feet per Minute. To increase the speed in mph you make the tube diameter smaller which in turn reduces the amount of air or CFM that can pass through the smaller tube. The opposite is true by increasing the tube diameter. More air but less speed. Did you ever place your thumb on the end of a garden hose to squirt water? Same thing.

195 MPH 465 CFM Gas Backpack Blower is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 227.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lacks power I purchased this blower 4 months ago and have gone through 3 tank fulls. I mix the fuel exact and every drop of fuel ran through my equipment goes through fine screened funnel. This blower is doggy, lacks power and very hard to restart(doesn't matter where the throttle is at or with choke on or off, which choke should be off when warm) . I have used a few STIHL 600 backpack blowers, STIHL IS DEFINITELY WORTH THE EXTRA MONEY

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features I bought this about a month ago and I love it it's the second one I've had. It's one of the best products there is on the market. Never had a minute's problem with neither one of those. What I like about it the most is when you go to start it the second pull it starts right up. I would rate it a 10 plus

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a must buy product.... Buy this blower. After buying three diffrent blowers i finally found the blower for me.It is for sure the best buy for the money. i had my leaves and my neighbors as well to blow and this blower blew not only wet leaves all the way to dirt, it blew leaves ankle high with no problem. I primed it four times and it started right up.. blew leaves for over an hour with little effort. If u have a large yard like me and you are on a budget but need blowing power i would buy this blower. please do not buy ryobi products they work very poorly..air leaks out of the tube..I know u will be happy, very happy.. It is also comfortable to wear as well. Not too hard on the back...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I own several Echo products. Very impressed with the quality. The last Echo backpack blower I purchased lasted 19 yrs. It just recently needed some replacement parts after all that time but I decided to replace it with this current model. Home Depot had the best price and its online ordering process was flawless. Quick delivery. Blower was easy to put together. You can't go wrong with this blower. It has the power and strength to get the job done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Residential Backpack Blower I had many products from Sears but none of them last one season, especially the backpack blower pro grade 7179400 bought for $200, used for only one hour then died, could not started. Tried to fix but did not work, brought it to the service center to learned that the cost of fixing is over $200 for part only, so I threw it away. My friend recommended the Echo P-500H which he used for a few years without any problems so I ordered that same model. I used twice and loved the power and easy to use. The only problem is it a little bit heavy but once it on your back everything works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably the best blower on the rocks!!!! I bought the Model # PB-500T (same blower) because it has the throttle on the handle. It is an awesome yard tool and I think it would move bricks as well as leaves. There is plenty of air volume and my yard looks the best it ever has in the fall. It may seem a little heavy at first but I operated it on a steep hill for almost three hours and it was not a factor. It is very well balanced and you can operate the nozzle with your pinky if you want. All the 5 star reviews on this blower are is a 5 star product but I recommend the Model # PB-500T for the ease of throttle access.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best of the best this will "blow" you away!! i bought it to blow sand from the plow truck. it gets right down to the soil and that is even when it's wet. leaves are not a problem, wet or dry. my wife now does all the leaf blowing !! i can't get the machine away from her; how good is that?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Equipment I made my purchase 2 years ago and it still starts on the first pull. I also own an Echo edger, weed eater and hedge trimmer. If you are still using electric and like searching for outlets don't by one. I always read reviews before I make purchases and no one had a better deal for the price.
