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?
Asked by: Amy
This uses a 50:1 gas to oil mix, for two stroke engines. hop this helps!

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 not by yourself.

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 261.

I actually bought the Ryobi backpack style as I was talked out of this one by an employee. He loves his and it is half the cost (if you open an acct and get the $25 gift card). Lets say this... I returned the Ryobi ( it isn't really bad but for the double cost you get so much more - so I will be chiming in on the Ryobi review soon... ) Pro: * at idle it is so quiet * superb throttle response * adjustable trigger assembly * fairly quiet * high rise style riding high on the back - totally comfortable * this is going to sound stupid but the ring at the end of the tube has a metal piece. My previous backpack style has worn down so much due to being plastic and you dragging it on the concrete

In addition to my main home, I also own a lake home and a rental property. All three have lots of oak and pine trees. The blower took about 10 minutes to assemble. Pay special attention to the anti-static wire. It goes inside the tube before you attach and clamp to the main unit. I missed that and had to disassemble and reassemble to get it right. I have run two gallons of gas through it at this point. It is a gas sipper. It always starts on the second pull. First pull with full choke and second with choke off. Vroom, Vroom. It blows leaves off of landscape rock, mulch and driveways with ease. It also works well at clearing leaves along edging and into the lawn. From there, I use a lawn tractor with a three bin bagger. What used to take all weekend is now completed in about two hours per property. I thought this blower might be overkill, but it is not. It is designed to get the job done fast. Overall build quality seems good. Also, I am 61 and was concerned about weight. Not a problem. You know it's back there, but it is not uncomfortable or too heavy. As a final comment, I burned my leaves at the lake home. I used the blower to direct air into the fire by setting it on the ground at idle and aiming the snout at the base of the leaf pile. It literally incinerated my leaves in a very short period of time.

I have been in the lawn care field for 30 plus years and this blower replaced my 19 year old blower. This does not have the capacity of a top of the line blower but for 99% of what a homeowner would need, this would do the job. I strongly recommend Echo as that is all I have used for 30 years and always use each Echo product for at least a decade.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another high quality product. Purchased the blower after initially getting an Echo chainsaw and later an Echo straight shaft string trimmer. It's amazingly powerful. Starts within 2 pulls. The tank holds about a full gallon of fuel---great it you are using in a commercial setting but would probably suggest only filling half way for home use just to minimize the additional weight when it's in limited use. I don't have a lot of leaves to remove but get my rear lawn covered in pines needles from a neighboring park. With this blower I can clean up the entire lawn to be needle free in just a few minutes compared to a traditional blower that would take longer or not even have enough power to blow the needles free from the lawn. Having the 5 year warranty for consumer use more than makes up for the added expense for this superior quality product.

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 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.
