Gas to use

We had an issue with using regular unleaded gas in our lawn mower. Is there specific gas that should be used with this blower?

Is it better to have the throttle on the tube or hip with a backpack blower?

Asked by: ROtraveller51
On the tube you don't want to add any more wait to the unit, plus having it on the hip is worth less.

Can you start it on your back?

I have a echo 755 that once it is warm I can reach around and pull the start rope. It's not easy but it can be done
Asked by: Waveraider
No you can not.

how to "route the anti-static wire"?

I have been reading page 17 of the manual over and over. I know I am technologically challenged when it comes to even simple instructions, but I still cannot figure out where/how to "route the anti-static wire" :(
Asked by: rjkraco
The anti-static wire goes into the inside of the tube where it connects to the elbow when you assemble it. Be sure to leave a little slack in the wire as you need room for movement. You just drop it into the straight tube prior to attaching it to the elbow.

215 MPH 510 CFM 58.2cc Gas Backpack Blower with Tube Throttle is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 280.

The Live Oak trees were dropping a lot of leaves and pollen when I first got it. It starts up easy, has a ton of power, and it is not too heavy. You can do big areas quickly. There are two things that may help you: 1. It has more power than any blower I have used before. I have some areas that are covered with gravel and have had to get used to keeping the blower end horizontal or lowering the power around it to keep the gravel from blowing away. 2. If you fill the gas tank up 1/2 way it will be lighter and it lasts me long enough to blow off my yard a couple of times.

After 10 yrs. of service I upgraded my PB 620.Nothing wrong with it, just wanted a little more power. I purchased mine last August 2016 at an Echo Dealer. The vents at the back are great during hot days. The metal ring protecting the end tube is a great plus! PB 580T is lightweight and lots of power for medium duty work. Starts right up.(Just follow the starting procedure) It is perfect for my set up. Looking forward for years of great service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You will be very sorry... If you pass this up. Stop playing games with other electric or gas blowers. I've gone through 3 gas blowers, a corded blower, and a rechargeable blower. This ECHO IS AMAZING!! It blows more cubic air because unlike other blowers it doesn't use a reducer to get the speed. This is true blowing speed. It doesn't stress your arms or hands like the others. The backpack is shockingly light weight and the vibration is minimal due to the shock absorbers. I have an acre of treed land and I honestly cut my time in HALF. Took 10 minutes to put together and then ready to go. Since you paying a fair amount of money for it, do yourself a favor and buy the fuel substitute. Won't clog lines and will increase life of the blower. This was money well spent!!

Now I wish there as an option for ZERO star. It stopped after exactly one year. Echo does not honor the announced warranty as their dealer claims that it was low on oil. IT WAS NOT. I use Echo 2.6 oz oil with a fresh exact gallon of fuel. When I said that, then they say that I should have used 97 octane gas. They are trying to find any reason in order not to honor the claimed 5 years warranty. It $300+ that will be dumped into the garbage. I will also file complaint with BBB.

Our 3-1/2 acre yard is totally wooded and I have fought tons of oak leaves for years. I wore out numerous rakes and a couple of small hand-held homeowner leaf blowers before deciding to purchase this Echo PB-580T. The difference is like daylight and dark. This blower will lift and roll a deep bed of leaves like a fire hose of air. I've been able to clean out flowerbeds and other neglected areas that contained layers of wet matted leaves that a rake would only scratch the surface. I have been amazed by the performance and the efficiency. The blower is well made, it cranks easily, it's fuel efficient, and it runs slower than the small high RPM homeowner blowers that I have previously used. The slower speed results in it being quieter. My only regret is not buying one of these sooner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great blower. Easy to put together, easy to start, and easy to use. When I first brought it home, I had a little bit of buyers remorse, because the Echo handheld blower home depot sells would fit my needs....until I got it out and did some leave clean up. This is an awesome blower, lots of power, and very light. My only complaint is the "cruise control" system. I wish that I could squeeze the trigger to release it. It will only release if you move the cruise control switch on the side of the handle. I had an echo handheld at one time that trigger pull would release cruise control. Anyways great product, never been disappointed with echo's quality and longevity.

I have a bad back but this one never caused problems. We have a lot of huge oaks so the leaves are thick on the ground, but this will even peel off the wet leaves stuck to the dirt. Once you learn how, you can throw big piles of dry leaves 15-20 feet, wet ones over 10-12 feet.. One note - to make it easier to put on and off, loosen the shoulder straps until you find the right length to slip it on by yourself, and save yourself some struggling. A short bungee across the chest will hold them together so it can't slip off your shoulders. This machine did the job for me, so much better than the smaller unit I used previously.

Bought this blower to replace a handheld Echo blower that was at least 25 years old. The ability of this blower to move leaves is awesome compared to my old blower. A huge time saver. Easy to start and very quiet for a leaf blower. A couple of options I would like to see to make it even better: a chest strap to keep the shoulder straps in place (like on many hiking backpacks) would be very helpful. Also, an optional curved tip for the discharge tube would make it easier to control the direction of the air flow when working near landscape borders or around obstacles.
