Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Berger Very Quiet not sure about power
I received this item, put gas in it and attempted to start it on the cold start setting. It would not start. After many attempts I set the choke to normal and it started. Since then I have used it about five times. It will never start on the cold start setting but starts on the first pull every time on the normal setting.
The machine is very quiet compared to others, I don't know if this is because it isn't blowing as much as it should or if it is just a good design. Seems to work fine but I did expect it to move more grass and leaves. Again I don't know if it is working at full strength, I have nothing to compare it to.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HDguy1958 Overhyped for the Money
Really heavy, and even though it is typical good Echo blower quality, I found it to be a bit unwieldy, and I can't tell the difference between the 165 MPH at $120.00 vs. this one. I returned mine and will go with the smaller unit and save $80.00-100.00.
As I stated in the subject title, this has a lot of hype but for the weight, the noise level (about the same as the 165 MPH), and the price tag, this is no bargain, nor a great value.
Having said all that, GO WITH ECHO. They offer a 5-year Consumer Warranty and they are reliable!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by steve Echo is the best
Lost my last echo in a garage fire. It was 10 years old, and always started and ran like it was new. If this new one is anything like my old one it should last 20+ years.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ClemsonTiger96 Echo leaf blower
Very easy to assemble. Light weight and easy to use. This blower is less noisier than any previous blower I have owned. So far I have only used it to clean up after mowing the lawn. The blower is powerful enough that I cannot see having any issues getting leaves to the curb. Very good choice and I agree with Consumer Reports, this is a very good product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cabo ECHO has great products for the homeowner....I do all my own yard work at 75 and it makes it all a breeze!
I not only use the blower but have the PAS system with most of the attachments and have never had an issue with any of these products. In fact I got tired of my son borrowing my equipment that I bought him a PAS system too!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kawasakiex100 Echo hand held blower Superb
Arrived as planned. Small amount of assembly for the blow tubes. Filled tank with the 50 to 1 fuel mix. Followed start up procedure and it started right up. No issues on following startups. Blows high volume of air and is quiet. Used it several times just for a quick cleanup and has been very dependable. On par with my other Echo equipment. High quality with a reasonable price.
