Which is more important mph or cfm?

Your two handheld echo's have 165 mph and 191 mph; however, the 191 mph has a lower cfm.
Asked by: pete
If you want both, you can buy both flared and straight blower tubes under Accessories from the Echo website. Your question is about "open volume" vs. "pressurized stream." It's like the difference between a garden hose without a nozzle vs. a hose with a nozzle set at "narrow stream." Which will move more dirt: open volume (higher volume/CFM) or pressurized stream (higher velocity/MPH)? Obviously, with enough volume you can move as much dirt with volume as with higher-pressure stream, so there is a break even point there somewhere. However, tapping the same source (in this case a 25.4cc engine), higher velocity (with sufficient volume) will do more work, according to several reviews comparing the PB-250LN with the PB-255LN. Those reviews say that the PB-255LN blows harder and gets more done. Now the question is: Is the additional velocity achieved solely by the flared end pipe? I don't know. But you can buy the straight blower tube as an accessory if you want it.

interchangeable nozzles

does this blower come with more than one type of nozzle? For example a round end and a "flat" end?
Asked by: mary
There is a gutter cleaning kit ($55) that has two tubes, one of which is straight, not flared. On the other hand, you could buy a replacement part flared blower tube nozzle on the Echo website and cut off the flared tip in order to have both. I was unable to find the price.

What does Rotational Control mean? Mine, which is similar says rotational control on the pipe but does not have a flat end on the pipe, but the first pipe is curved. I keep thinking the pipe can be rotated but then the installation is not correct.
Asked by: Mine
On the PB-250LN the rotational control is achieved by the zig-zag at the back end of the blower tube. It offsets the force created by the impeller (the fan) that causes the blower to tend to rotate left or right (depending on the design of the blower). The PB-255LN does not have this zig-zag in the blower tube. Instead, it provides a second handle (on the bottom) so that the user can use a two-handed grip to counteract the blower's tendency to rotate.

It is light weight enough to handle and the extra power makes blowing leaves easier and faster. I highly recommend this product for the average consumer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to start powerful and light weight I bought this blower over three years ago and it works every time , however I have a great story about this blower . A few weeks ago I was blowing leaves around the pool I slipped and the blower fell into the pool while it's running ,went to the bottom of the pool and was there for five minutes . I thought that was the end of the blower. I took the blow apart mainly the spark plug and the muffler , Blew air through the spark plug and the muffler , fill the tank with a fresh fuel and waited about an hour then I put everything together and started immediately it's been working ever since like a champ . Best blower I have ever had .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Echo Warranty is a joke Never again will I buy an Echo blower. I would give this cheap Chinese built (US assembled) blower zero stars if possible. I bought the blower brand new and after using once, it wouldn't start. I brought it to Echo dealer for service and they told me the fuel filter was defective. I was under the impression Echo offered a 5 year warranty and the service dealer said this type of repair isn't covered. He also said Echo's warranty is a joke and it doesn't cover much. Search for this online and you will see what I am talking about. There are also many other Echo owners who have also experienced problems with this and the previous 250LN model complaining online. I had to pay $50 to repair after owning the product for 3 weeks. I called Echo to complain and voice my concern and dealt with a manager named Christine who was extremely rude and told me next time I don't have to buy Echo. Never again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from unbelievable power and easy to use I bought my Echo 255 a month ago at the end of the fall season knowing that I would only use it a few times. However, I have used it quite a bit. I was able to completed take care of my leaves (I live in a wooded area surrounded by a variety of trees) in a very short time. I put a short extension on the blower and cleaned out my gutters without having to get on a ladder. My daughter used my blower and was excited as she has an electric Toro she has been using for several years so I suspect she will borrow my Echo next year. My previous experience has been with Craftsman blowers and I won't be recomending or buying them anymore. I will probably use my Echo this winter to clear my driveway during a light snowfall. Overall I am extremely safisfied with my purchase and will recommend this to anyone needing a blower..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Gas Blower out there !!! I bought this Echo gas blower on the recommendation of my small engine repair guy, he told me of the people he's told about this machine that he doesn't see them much any more, HaHa (not for repairs to their gas blowers anyway). I had NO idea that a machine this good even existed, i just love it, starts right up, light weight & powerful. The only thing i miss with this machine is the extra hardware for vacuuming but i understand that it's avilable if needed . . . .
