Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by does everything I bought this last year and it is a dream. Starts on 2nd pull every time even my wife loves it. June 17, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use, very powerful. I bought this machine about a month ago. I am very satisfied with the product. It is very easy to use, and a very powerful machine. The hip mounted throttle control option is a great feature. I would recommend this option if you are going to purchase this unit. May 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Yard Work Made Easier I've had my ECHO PB-500H for just over a month now and really glad I bought it. I'm 70 and questioned myself if I could strap this on and use it. I'm also left-handed and had reservations of using the controls while guiding the blower. It was so easy to adapt and "a piece a cake" to use. It actually makes yard work more fun. I look forward to this part of the yard work. I also like the easy startup of it. May 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Everything I thought and was told it would be! I had never used a gas blower before, only electric ones. This Echo blower is the answer to my yard clean up issues. I have 40 tall Cedars, Ponderosa's and Douglas Fir on my property and this blower removes the pine cones and the needles with ease and speed. The Echo blower is light weight and easy to use, plus easy directions for use and care. October 9, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by worth every penny I bought this after doing some extensive research on blowers and this was one of the best purchases of lawn and garden equipment ever. Cut my blowing time in half at least. Starts on first pull everytime and fuel tank is big enough to not half to stop and refill before the job is done. Overall I'm very pleased and would recommend to anyone. May 3, 2015
