Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 134 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exceeded all of my expectations. I have a fenced in back yard so all the fall leaves gather allong my fenceline. The few that don't I was able to use the blower to gather to the side. I was then able to use the vaccuum option. I found the bag easy to use, it goes on and comes off very easily with a velcro strap to secure it in place. It would be nice if it was something different than velcro since I feel that could wear out after a couple of years (just me nit picking), so far it works gread. The bag opens with a very sturdy zipper, I never had any problems with it. I was able to get at least 2x as many leaves in my Yard waste bag as I was by just smashing them in so the mulching seams to work really well. There is a lever that has to be pressed (requiring a screw driver) to change out the blower tube for the vaccume tube. I could see that being inconvenient if you needed to switch back and forth a lot but it did not affect how I worked. Overall, I am VERY happy I purchased this over other comparably priced models.

Rated 5 out of 5 by This blower/vac has power! This is our 4th Echo product. We keep coming back to Echo because they never disappoint. We also have an Echo backpack blower but needed a new leaf vacuum after our old electric leaf vacuum (a different brand) had the motor burn up. This blower and vac has tons of power and assembly is a snap. Transitioning from the blower to vac is simple if you follow the instructions provided. December 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by So far so good. I know a couple people with this model and everyone likes it Super easy to setup and start using it. The build seems to be good quality as well. I compared this versus the Stihl and Husquavarna versions and this one had the largest shred bag and similar specs, but was cheaper so it was an easy decision. October 15, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Carburetor issues My first ECHO blower lasted me over 10 years. What a great machine. Treated myself to a new one 11/2012. Had to return it to Home Depot in 5/2013. Carburetor was not performing properly. I waited 3 months and purchased another Echo. I used it maybe 3-4 times and again having the same trouble this spring (2014) as the previous blower (carburetor chocking out). Fresh gas added with correct mixture and still will not run properly. I am very suprized this is happening. I gave this a excellent rating for quality because when this blower was running properly it was a great machine. Sorry ECHO April 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Vac N Shreder Debated on this for a while, according to Home Depot inventory, they only carried the 210, which didn't have great reviews. Went to Home Depot and to my surprise they had the ES-250, purchased it, and used it this week, I have a red maple in the front, attached the vac tube, bag and went at it. Within minutes the front yard was clean and the shredding was excellent. Can't wait for the rain to stop so I can finish the back yard. Had a electric Toro for last 10 years, the Echo out performed the Toro and then some. November 6, 2013
