Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BuffaloBill Great Blower
I bought this to replace a 13 year old Poulan Pro blower that finally died. I like this new blower so much better. I've only used it about 6 or 7 times so far, but it has always started on the first or second pull, and runs great as soon as it starts. It is a lot quieter than my old blower, I can run it full bore without bothering the neighbors. The angled blower tube aims where want it when you hold the blower in a natural position. With my old blower I had to aim the whole blower toward the ground which would tire my arm. I can't testify how well it handle leaves, I bought primarily for blowing off my 150ft driveway after mowing. It does a great job, I imagine it will work great with leaves too. One thing I noticed is the on/off switch is not spring loaded, so you have to remember to turn it on before starting. I've gotten in the habit of turning it back to "on" after I've turned it off. Other than that, I love this blower. This is my first Echo product, and so far, I'm very impressed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jim Replacement for Weedeater Model 940
This replaced a Weedeater Blower/Vac model 940 that had more velocity. Unfortunately, someone else also liked my well maintained 20 year old 940 as well. It was taken from my garage.
This replacement seemed to be the only one rated at a reasonable velocity of 191mph. I have to admit it is much more quieter than the 940 and that should keep the neighbors happy early in the morning. This has no vac capability, but there is an extension tube kit available for blowing out gutters. Hopefully blower will be a good investment for weekly use around the home.
Would recommend this model over any of the others on the market today just based on performance. I see a few maintenance items in the design that will require watching. The fuel primer bulb will be one to watch for failure/leaking. 940 did not have one. Recommend using good clean fuel with no alcohol, the recommended oil and Stabil fuel stabilizer and don't mix anymore than you plan to used within 4-6 months. Also, do not store equipment in off-season with fuel in it. This has been my approach for years and I have a number of small 2 cycle engines on equipment that are over 40 years old and have never required any engine repair. Do expect plastic primer bulbs and fuel tubing to deteriorate and require replacement in 5-7 years. Hopefully, this will be the last blower I will need to purchase in my lifetime.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DJ Echo Blower
Rugged looking and nice design was my initial impression. Unfortunately I was quite disappointed in the velocity of air flow and power per listed specs. At full throttle I was only able to move debris at a minimum distance ( a couple of feet ). I really wanted to like the product but ultimately performance and ability to do the task at hand should be the goal of any product. Maybe others will find this model acceptable, but for the price, I expected much more.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jay I am very happy with this product
It's quieter than my old one and love the throttle lock. It's just a tad less MPH than my old Toro but I am very happy with the Echo products. I own a Echo split boom string trimmer with multi attachments, pole saw, brush cutter, hedge cutter, sidewalk edger and tiller and I love there line of products
