Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JimOfSammamish Be prepared to be blown over, to reassemble, and to blow off your roof afterwards
First, others mention adding 2 additional hose clamps. I agree as the force of air will disassemble this unit. The 90 degree bends will blow off first followed by the entire extension.
That same force can be tiresome. The tube reduces the opening from 3+ inches to about 2 inches. That creates significant force to blow the leaves. Adding the 90 degree bends and that is some serious lateral torque that may be difficult for users with a bad back or bad elbows or shoulders.
The force when using it above my head from the ground blows much of the debris up onto the roof. This essentially forces me back on the roof to remove that. Therefore, the entire reason that I bought this was to stop having to get up on the dangerous roof. Now I am up there anyway to clean up after this blower.
As for the quality of the materials and their effort to design this to mate with the existing blower, well I found it good.
It is just such a work out and if the tubes blow off while you are on the roof you will find that you are now trekking up and down the ladder even more than you did before.

Worked great, altho I don't have an echo blower, a strip of duct tape worked wonders attached to my Ryobi One Blower ;)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by duellingcarl Echo does it once again!
I bought this for my Echo PB-500T. Though the 500 is not listed in the compatible model list it actually is compatible with the 500 series. I put this together in all of 30 seconds to a minute and snapped it on the blower and ten minutes later I had my gutters totally cleaned. The only downside to this is they only give you two clamps when I found that you should use more like 4. I got 2 more clamps and connected then to the quarter round tubes at the top and never had problems with them falling off again. Thank you ECHO!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Curmudgeon It works
I know what Echo calls it, but the slide on and lock make up between the original blower nozzle is a pain in the back side, but I rarely had reason to remove it. With the gutter extension disassembly - it’s a regular thing and the poor manufacturing tolerances are cause for heart burn. The two pieces that make up the all important end that directs the air flow into the gutter need some sort of latching device as they can be blown off far too easily. Considering the need for re-engineering and better production tolerances its over priced --- bottom line is it will clear the leaves out of the gutters but take care its fragile.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gerber95 Works great if not too full.
I found this product to be a great addition to my arsenal against the clogging of my gutters by leasves...provided it is used EVERY week. We have 60 year old Camphor trees that drop leaves every day, all year round. If the leaves become too thick and compacted, then the tool is almost useless. If I run my blower at high speed with the attachment on, it is almost impossible to hold it in a vertical position for more than a minute or two. The air pressure on a long length puts great force in a backward motion. You can't hold that for long. I found that if cleaning a light load of leaves with low pressure, then this product is priceless, as it saves a trip to the roof, and a possible fall.

This product is a giant time saver and very handy to have. I do not enjoy getting on a ladder to clean out the rain gutters. With this product I can clean the gutters every two weeks and keep them cleaned out . I have to admit I didn't keep them that clean before this product so now my foundation will be much better off. Thank you!
