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

Answer: 
For reference, read the Manual, page 19, you need fuel mix with specific oil. Follow this:
1- Midgrade Gas: or higher (car gas with 89 octane) is good enough
I like to use premium gas for my leave blower (92/93 octane), but that's only personal choice. It costs a few cents more but gives you better quality.
2- Echo 2 Stroke Oil: Go to Home Depot, get a few of them. Each is a 2.6oz bottle.

3- You mix 1 gallon of gas with 1 2.6oz oil bottle, and shake it well (30 times or so), and it's good to use in the machine.

this is a 2 cycle so you need to mix with 2 cycle oil. Best thing to use is TruFuel. The Red can. No mixing required. Works awesome!

Answer: 
92 octane regular gas is correct with this blower, as with any small motor. Be sure to mix 2 stroke oil with the gas. Mixture is 2.6 of 2 stroke oil to 1 gallon of gas.

Answer: 
This uses a 50:1 gas to oil mix, for two stroke engines.
In addition to that, I'd recommend using an ethanol free gasoline for the mixture, since ethanol in small engines is notorious for rotting fuel lines and gumming up the carb.

Answer: 
I just received a $250 repair estimate for a 2 year old blower. The stated reason is "gummed up carburetor" due to the use of ethanol. With a repair bill like this one, this blower is not one I would recommend. I'm not pursuing a warranty claim.

Answer: 
What issue did you have? There should have been no issues, 89 or higher octane properly premixed is fine. I use Amsoil Saber Professional at 90:1 and 93 octane. The blower is designed to accept 10% or less ethanol.

Answer: 
in my opinion, throttle on the tube is more convenient for me, because I can control everything in one hand and leave the other hand free to do other works if necessary. There are only 2 functions to be handled, 1 is to control the blow which you use constantly, 2 stop/running which you use for ignition or stop and don't touch during operation. So, it does not make sense to separate them into 2 handles.

Answer: 
You need to keep your hand on the tube handle anyways, so why add an extra contraption on the opposite side for $30 more? The hand trigger is easy to use and has a switch to auto-select the speed (just point and blow) which is great for people with arthritis or carpel tunnel.

Answer: 
It's really personal preference. I find it's easier to use on the tube, since you've already got one hand tied up controlling the tube anyway. Then your other hand is free to pick up larger debris like branches.
With the throttle on the hip, you need both hands to operate the blower, unless you use the cruise control feature.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 72 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Echo Blower I just bought this blower less than an hour ago and it is an excellent product! Assembly was easy and straightforward and it started on the first pull. I'm kicking myself for not buying one sooner. September 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Power This gas back pack blower has nice power. I upgraded from a hand held blower to this unit and I can now blow my yard in half the time. Not to mention I don't have kinks in my neck and shoulders from the hand held. Very easy to put together - it took about 10 minutes. Operating is easy - just like any 2 stroke motor. I use this blower on a weekly basis for about 30 minutes and need to fill the gas up about every 3rd time I use. May 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Blower I have had to bring it back to homedepot twice now. I am tired of getting horrible equipment. I am just gonna have to start shopping at lowes September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Top notch Bought it for the gardeners use. They love it and use it every few days. Will be using it a lot more when the leaves start to fall. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy with purchase! This is the first backpack blower I have purchased and I wish I would have upgraded sooner. The price made it hard justify being that it cost more than my lawn mower but my wrist always hurt when using a standard handheld gas blower and if I was going to upgrade, I better get the most power available for leaves in the fall. This blower doesnt disappoint. I hope the quality gives me years of reliable sercice. August 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by a good purchase easy to order easy to assemble and easy to use lightweight and quiet September 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful My 1st Echo product. Purchased from Home Depot- 06/30/2014 w/ 5-yr.Consumer Warranty.First 2-seasons worked fine.3rd season & under 2-yrs.old primer bulb stuck inwards. Brought to Echo Service dealer for warranty repair & was charged $192.95 for carburetor replacement. Echo refused to honor the 5-year Consumer Warranty it advertises. Echo claims stale fuel problem instead of honoring warranty. I'll never purchase another Echo product. Save yourself a headache and buy Husquarvanna. July 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A mini tornado in a backpack I bought this to replace my old Homelite backpacker. The homelite wasn't very powerful to begin with, but this Echo is twice as powerful. It blows just about anything with considerable power including wet leaves. The air leaving the pipe sends debris flying just like a twister would. It is very easy to start up and it is quiet. It also has a large fuel tank for longer run times. Also, it is very comfortable to wear. I am 6'1, 240 lbs with very broad shoulders and I can get the unit on my back no problem. It has a ventilated back that blows air on you to keep you cool. It is a pain to assemble at first, but be patient and follow the instructions. As with other Echo products, use mid-grade or higher gasoline with oil mixed to 50:1. Echo powerfuel works really well with this unit and I recommend using it for the first few times to help break it in. After that, use whatever. In conclusion, this is definitely the entry level blower for commercial use. A fantastic blower with plenty of power and practicality. August 15, 2016
