Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PrattTechnicalServices Best blower we have ever used
Ive used large Stihl, Husquavarna, Tanaka, and the next size smaller Echo backpack blowers. This unit is one of the most comfortable to wear for long periods of time, and because of its power it takes less time to complete the cleanup work. If it proves as reliable as my previous echo blowers then this will without a doubt be the only blower I buy from here on out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Noah Hurricane in a backpack
Have a 1 acre heavily wooded lot and was concerned about having to deal with all the leaves. I'm not concerned any longer. This blower seriously moves some air and saves many hours of work. What's more it turns a chore into play time -- even the kid wants to use it! I've used it to reclaim large areas of my yard from years worth of decaying leaves neglected by previous owners. This blower has the power to blast through old layers. Expensive and loud (wear hearing protection) it is still a 5 star product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ShinyFrieda Excellent backpack blower
This is my first backpack blower. It's such a relief to not carry the whole machine with my hands (which used to get numb and sore with all the vibration and weight). This is extremely powerful compared to any hand blower too, and it does the job extremely well. I wouldn't trade it for anything.
First I was afraid it would be too heavy for me (I'm a 5'5 tall woman, 135 lb.) But it was just fine. I used the machine for 3 hours, my right arm was sore from maneuvering the tube, but my back was fine and the job was finally done the right way. :-)

I set out looking for "the best" blower I could find. We have less than an acre lot, but there are quite a few trees and I didn't feel like spending days picking up leaves again this year. I decided on this model after checking a few landscaping/lawn care forums. A key factor was the stories from commercial lawn care professionals who were using this model on 8+ lawns/day for 5+ years without any issues.
Assembly was easy, unit started easily after a few pulls. Power and performance were excellent. I was able to clear half of the yard in about an hour - a job that took closer to 4 with a hand blower/rake in past years. Overall very satisfied and would recommend to anyone. This was a case where there extra money was worth it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by yfz450killer excellent product with 8 year warranty it can't be beat!
I bought this over the Stihl product and this had a 3 year warranty from home depot and 5 year from Echo so I have 8 years of trouble free usage. Performs awesome. I use it to dry the cars off after washing them as well as cleaning up. Solid construction just wished the price was not so high.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 AMAZING!!
We used to own an electric blower which was such a pain that you have to drag a power cord around and it had hardly any power to it...we have a lot of oaks/maples on our property and that combined with all the neighbors leaves blowing our way, we have decided to upgrade to this model. We are so happy that we did! What a great purchase! We should have done this years ago...the power this thing has is great and it cleans very thoroughly. Our property is about 1/3 acre and we have a lot of flower beds, patio, deck etc. where getting into areas to blow leaves out is difficult...Not anymore! WOW is all I can say..some folks may say the TrueFuel is too expensive, but we both have full-time jobs and have no time to be mixing up our own fuel..i'll pay the money it costs because it's worth it for time-saving leaf and yard cleanup! I would say the tank fills up on 2 cans of it...we have to use about 3 cans for the property for heavy leaf cleanup...just bought another couple of cases of the TrueFuel since it has a long shelf-life and we'll be picking up a lot of leaves through end of November.. Bottom line, this blower is the best..don't hesitate to get it if you want your life back and not spend hours upon hours with a weaker piece of equipment that doesn't do such a good job...this thing is fabulous...HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!
